Former Castle HotelThe castle was built in the early 19th century and belonged to Colonel King Tension. Its name has Gaelic roots, meaning "Ronan's Abbey", reminding of the close by Ronan Abbey ruins and Ronan's Holy Well and his hallow stone that served to baptize his followers. The Tensions fought with the Irish Brigade in France on behalf of Bonnie Prince Charlie and were also involved in the Peninsula Wars in Portugal and Spain. The history continues with their presence at the Battle of Waterloo, the Boer War and much more.
This castle hides a long history with some of Ireland's most important historic milestones. If you love to step into the feet of the former royals and travel back in time, while getting pampered all around, than Kilronan Castle is your place to be!
