Built by Capt William Flower in 1716, on the banks of the river Erkina in the Irish midlands, Castle Durrow has been lovingly restored by Shelly and Peter Stokes and is now open as one of Ireland's most popular luxury four-star hotels, conveniently located about 1 hour from Dublin and 90 minutes from Cork.

Walk the estate and surrounding woodlands and forests or stroll along the miles of river pathways. Visit the cafés, bars, restaurants and shops of Durrow and the nearby heritage town of Abbeyleix.

Explore the walled gardens where lots of organic produce is grown for Castle Durrow's restaurant. The formal grounds are a gardener's paradise and instructive tours are given by Castle Durrow's head gardener daily.

Castle Durrow is proudly one of Ireland's most popular Castle wedding venues and has numerous commendations from past couples.
