Markree Castle Sligo


Introducing the ultimate castle destination...

Markree Castle is an extraordinary venue - an authentic and historic Irish Castle located in the north-west of Ireland on the route of the world-famous Wild Atlantic Way.

Recently reopened after extensive and sensitive renovations, now is the time to discover a fairytale of elegance and service in a majestic part of Ireland.

Markree Castle was purchased by renowned family of Irish hoteliers, The Corscaddens, and has been lovingly and extensively renovated to the highest standards. It now joins the family’s Romantic Castles of Ireland hotel and venue portfolio.

The family’s fourth luxurious Irish Castle venue, Markree Castle reopened in March 2017. Extensive renovations have been completed to ensure the comfort of guests and the future of the castle. At every stage of the renovation process, the character and history of Markree has been protected and restored. Furniture and original features have been painstakingly rebuilt and reclaimed.

The considered redecoration and modernisation of the castle has allowed the castle to reclaim its position as one of the finest historic homes and luxury wedding and events venues in Ireland.
