  • My husband and I renewed our vows in the summer of 2016 inside the walled garden and had a wonderful three-day stay in the castle, which we had all to ourselves. The staff was absolutely amazing, the castle was beautiful (and such a blast to explore!), the medieval dinner was a great experience, and the grounds were stunning. Quin, the neighboring village, is also darling, and we enjoyed our evenings eating at the local restaurant and strolling among the ruins of Quin Abbey. We're planning another trip to Ireland in 2020--with our family this time--and we'll certainly be making a stop at Knappogue Castle.
  • The banquet was magnificent! The food was delicious and properly portioned. Nearly endless glasses of wine 🤤. The entertainment/entertainers were beautiful in every way. We also stayed the night and boy was that an experience. Truly once in a lifetime for an American like me. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
