Covid-19 Safety Promise

May 30th, 2020

We are currently closed at present due to the Irish Government restrictions during this health crisis. The situation in Ireland is improving by the day & following the Government’s roadmap to the easing of restrictions, we look forward to re-opening Fanningstown Castle to guests under Phase 4 from 20th July 2020.

The safety and well-being of our guests is incredibly important to us & be assured we will follow and comply with all the Government guidelines to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

This summer we look forward to welcoming guests based here in Ireland, especially those who would normally rent a villa in Europe but due to COVID-19, will ‘staycation’ at home this year.
