An Irish Castle is Available For Rent On Airbnb – And It’s MASSIVE

Ever wanted to find yourself in fantasy land? Well, now maybe your time has come! This majestic Irish castle is as enchanting as they come and is massive in size. 

Whether you’re looking for a location to host your next major family reunion or simply want to live in the lap of luxury, this place is for you. 

The property can be booked directly through Airbnb, an online marketplace and accommodation booking site which enables homeowners to rent out their properties online. 

The Background 

This fairytale Irish castle is named Wilton Castle. The stunning stately property sits on the banks of the Boro River in County Wexford not far from Dublin and looks like something out of a Charlotte Bronte novel. 

Grand and regal with an allure of Victorian Gothicism, this castle stands amidst endless gardens and enchanting woodlands with only the silence of nature surrounding.  

Having survived great families and civil war, Wilton Castle’s history is colourful and varied. While today we see a 19th-century exterior, the property itself stretches back to the 13th-century when its first tower was erected. 

Over the generations, the home has been passed through hands yet its preservation has always been kept in high regard. Today the impressive castle is available for weddings and private functions as well as group bookings on Airbnb.  

The Property  

While the exterior remains true to its 19th-century Irish castle charm, the interior has been renovated to offer sophisticated modern style, which is punctuated by original fixtures. 

On one hand, this massive castle, which is available to rent on Airbnb, has contemporary décor of crisp white bed linen, a modern kitchen and stylish chic furnishings.  

On the other, high ceilings and chandeliers, exposed brick walls, castle arches and grand windows, which allow floods of light to fill the home, formally place this palace in a time long gone.  

The marrying of past and present is done effortlessly. Present-day guests can enjoy living in the lap of luxury while feeling swept away in a fairytale palace which sits on rolling lawns in the Wexford countryside. 

The Fine Details 

Wilton Castle is a seven-bed, 6.5 bath property which sleeps 14 guests in total.  

While the estate is elegant and stately to no end, it has been fitted and kitted with all of the essential modern amenities. 

There is Wi-Fi that has been noted time and again as super fast across the entire property.  

There are roaring fires and top-notch central heating to shut down any preconceived notions that old castles are “chilly”.  

There is even an outdoor BBQ area and modern amenities such as a dishwasher! 

A common area with an additional two sofa beds enhances capacity in this mega property that is made for one sure fine family gathering.  

Other elements that truly make this property one of the finest castles to rent on Airbnb in Ireland include its accessibility.  

There is step-free access to the house, hallway clearances of at least 91cm wide, as well as wide clearances to beds, doorways and bathrooms. 

The Reviews 

Across the board, this majestic Irish castle to rent on Airbnb in County Wexford has a five-star rating. In fact, it is in such demand that we suggest you look to book well in advance (there are few available dates for the remainder of 2019!).  

Reviews on Airbnb are broken into six categories: accuracy, communication, cleanliness, location, check-in and value. This 19th-century castle impressively has hit top marks on all. 

One former visitor stated: “You could never stay in a place more magnificent than Wilton Castle. It exceeded our expectations. It was more beautiful than I can describe. Worth every penny. We loved every moment we were there. Wish we could have stayed longer.”
