Our guests say...

I cannot say enough about this wonderful, magical place! We chose Fanningstown because it was nearby my father's farm and we wanted our children to experience life in a castle. We had no idea just how wonderful this experience would be!
Fanningstown Castle is the perfect place to stay. If you've ever dreamed of living in a castle then go to Fanningstown Castle. Perfection is not enough to say. Furnishings were what you would think of in a castle. The Proprietors Mary and Dave Normoyle were the perfect hosts.
We hired Fanningstown Castle for our Wedding. It was so much better than we imagined. The setting is second to none. The rooms are all very spacious and very comfortable. All you can hear is bird song and cows. It was idyllic.
