Markree Castle, the Cooper family home for 370 years, has been lovingly restored by the current owner Charles Cooper and his wife Mary to become one of the finest country house hotels in Ireland. Set in a secluded 500 acre estate, peace and relaxation combined with good food, fine wine and old-world charm make a stay at Markree a step back in time.
Markree Castle offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere for get-away breaks and its location, in the heart of the countryside that inspired the great poet and playwright W.B. Yeats, makes it an ideal 'home-from-home' for longer stays.
A castle since the 14th century, with the most recent redesign taking place in the late 1800s, Markree is a cultural gem where the very finest in Irish Victorian and Georgian architecture is to be seen.
Thats the history bit over.
If you want to stay in a castle that has it all, then this is the place for you. From a child who walks the floors at night, to the spirit of a man throwing things around the rooms, you could also stay in The "Jonny Cash" room, were people have been woke up with the bedclothes being pulled off them.
For the more adventurous, in the private Chappel a lone monk is often seen deep in prayer along with a woman crying at the loss of her lover.
Stay in this amazing Castle. Enjoy the country walks, food, drink then when it gets dark join our team
as we take you on an ghostly investigation
