The 17th century Huntington Castle is located in 160 acres of gardens, woodland and farmland, and is a treasure trove of historical architecture and objects, while the Yew Tree Walk, Lime Tree Avenue and water features are just some of the elements of the castle’s delightful gardens and pleasure grounds. Located in Clonegal, County Carlow, Huntington Castle was originally built as a defensive garrison. After its soldiers relocated, it was developed into a family estate by the Baron of Esmonde. Many generations of the family added various extensions and details, resulting in the creation of a truly unique and interesting building.
Huntington has a small number of historic guest rooms, all with original period features such as four poster beds and oak panelling. Most rooms are en-suite and each room has its own character and story to tell. Guests have access to the castle and are able to have breakfast in the conservatory or the old dining room. They will also be able to explore the historical gardens at their leisure and lounge in the beautiful tapestry room.
