There are a lot of amazing castle hotels in Britain, but we’re putting the spotlight on one of these castle hotels today. Located in Ireland, this castle hotel is interesting because it’s located in the place the inspired the famous poet, William Butler Yeats. This is the Markree Castle Hotel, in County Sligo.
The bedrooms in this castle hotel are unique. Each has its own style and charm, so you could stay here twice and receive different – but equally wonderful – experiences in terms of accommodation.
There are a lot of things to do while staying at Markree, as well. One can go riding around the estate, exploring the surrounding areas. You can go on treks and trailrides, as well, and there are different packages for that depending on what you want to do. The location of this hotel makes several golf courses accessible for anyone who’s into golf. As well, one can go to Queen Meave’s grave, which is on top of Knocknarea mountain. There are a lot of things to do, and a lot of places to experience.
Sadly, though, at the time of this writing, this castle hotel is for sale, so the management is unable to take reservations. You are welcome to visit the website and check back, however. Once you get the opportunity to visit, it will be great to stay at the Markree Castle Hotel.
We were extremely pleased with our brief stay at Markree Castle. I hope that in the near future we will be able to schedule a longer visit. The staff was most pleasant and helpful, from the receptionist to the housekeeping staff to the servers in the dining room.

Markree Castle was the highlight of my trip to Ireland. I’ve always wanted to stay in a castle, and I finally had my chance. It was magical.
