Michael and family, August 2018
Memorable experience. Staying at this property was truly a memorable experience. The owners are thoughtful and kind - they greeted us and gave us a very thorough history of the property. They were available for and and all questions and their responses were always prompt. We had a large family ranging in age from two to 75 and everyone love the property for different reasons. If your looking for a unique and memorable experience, I connot recommend it enough.

We decided that we needed to rent a castle. He showed me a few from which to choose, and we both loved turin Castle, a glorious restored keep in County Mayo near the towns of Ballinrobe and Cong. It slept 12, with five bedrooms and five bathrooms. We were seven, so for once there were no arguments about bedrooms, no waiting for a free bathroom after a long day touring. Turin Castle rose square and solid from bright green fields at the end of a drive that was easy to miss, in part because it was proceeded by at least two turns on unnamed lanes. It has been gorgeously restored, which is not to say renovated. The amenities were modern (and flawless), but the layout was true to history. All the rooms were accessed by a stone spiral staircase that began on the ground floor, where the doorways were so small. Along a series of landings were other bedrooms, bathrooms and the kitchen, which was connected to a brethtaking great room with a fireplace you could stand in and a table that can only be desribed as 'baronial'. I have been in house that felt disturbed or scarred somehow, but Turin Castle was not like that, not scary at all. It was lovely and interesting; even those who felt the spirit thought it was mischevous, not malicious.
