Situated amid majestic trees in the tranquil countryside on the County Meath and Cavan border, the castle commands magnificent views of Lough Sheelin, a 4500 acre lake famous for its brown trout, liberally stocked perch and large pike. The secluded setting and spacious, comfortable accommodation offers the visitor an exclusive retreat. Guests will find it the perfect place to relax and unwind, away from the stresses and strains of modern life, or as a venue for a private function. The rental price includes exclusive hire of the castle with 6 bedrooms.
The ancient village in which the castle is situated is on the south side of the River Inny as it enters Lough Sheelin. Its origins go back to the early iron age, with many remains of dolmen stones, ring forts and Norman castles found in the area.
In 1533 Richard Nugent, the 12th Baron of Delvin, commenced the construction of the stronghold. The tower was completed by him in 1537. The great hall and further extensions were finished by his grandson, the 13th Baron of Delvin in 1539. The Castle served as a guard at the western reaches of the pale against the Celtic Irish across the lake in what today is County Cavan.
