If you aren’t familiar with this very quirky dwelling, you’ll find out everything you need below, from prices and location to unique features and more.

You’ll find Rincolisky Castle in West Cork in an enviable position where it overlooks the chilly waters of Roaring Bay.

The castle is a fine base for exploring the best that the area has to offer, with the likes of Skibbereen, Mizen Head and plenty more a stone’s throw away.

Now, this isn’t any old castle – as you can see from the second picture above, it’s been kitted out with some very fancy features that make staying here all the more comfortable.

Good God, that’s some view in the first snap above! As you can see, the castle has been finely modified to treat those that visit to some very luxurious surroundings.

Now, if you’re worried about the interior of the castle being too modern, don’t – Rincolisky Castle still boasts a clatter of Antique furnishings, all of which add charm and character to the structure. 

Those that visit can kick back in front of a roaring fire on the colder nights or sip beers on the upper floor while watching the sun set over the ocean.

The castle comes with all of the regular amenities that you’d expect from an Airbnb, like a microwave and dishwasher, however it also comes equipped with some other features that give it its ‘X-Factor’.

Those that visit the castle can cook up a storm on a BBQ, head for a ramble in the grounds or… drumroll please… soak up the view of the surrounding area from a hot tub.

The castle has three bedrooms and can sleep up to six people. You may have to fight over who gets the top room, though! 

How much a night will set you back

Now, there’s a couple of things to note before we chat about the price – the first is that there’s a three-night minimum stay.

The second is that the castle sleeps 6 and the third is that there’s limited availability before September.

To check the prices, I’ve lashed in a 3-night stay for 6 people sharing. Here’s how much it works out at:

  • Total: €1,150
  • Total per person: €191.66
  • Total per person per night: €63.88
  • You can see more of this place or book a night here
  • If you use the link above we’ll make a tiny commission that goes towards the running of this website and you won’t pay anything extra (cheers if you do – it’s appreciated!)
