Welcome to Markree Castle

4 star Luxury Castle Hotel

Welcome to Markree Castle, a 17th Century authentic Irish castle located in the beautiful County Sligo on the route of the world-famous Wild Atlantic Way.

Markree Castle is a place to be inspired, to reflect, to recharge and reconnect. One of the largest privately-owned castles in Ireland, Markree Castle stands on a secluded 500-acre estate in the scenic north-west of Ireland. Extensive renovations were completed in 2017, allowing this Gothic masterpiece to reclaim its position as one of the finest historic castles and wedding venues in the land.

On arrival, you are instantly transported back in time. From the imposing Gatehouse to the spectacular ‘port la coeur’, you’ll find a world of historic splendour underpinned by the finest modern comforts. With rich décor, indulgent dining, picturesque views and magnificent bedrooms, relax and enjoy all Markree has to offer

Wander through the castle, enjoying the blazing fire in the Grand Hall, period features and furnishings, and the breath-taking inter-linked dining rooms creating that authentic, old-world charm. The 500-acre grounds are also all yours to explore with mature trees, meticulously manicured gardens, and even the River Unshin flowing through the castle estate.

During your stay, relax in your beautifully appointed bedroom or suite with wonderful views. Our 31 en-suite guest bedrooms have been finished to the highest standards in luxury hotel accommodation, boasting all the modern amenities of a quality hotel but in a stunning 17th Century authentic Irish Castle.
