Bansha Castle, Bansha, Co. South Tipperary, Ireland Vacation Rental
This lovely old country house, built in 1760, is set in 40-acres of private grounds with gardens and mature trees. The location is particularly attractive, a pleasant one hour's drive from Shannon Airport, it is backed by the beautiful Glen of Aherlow and the famous Galtee mountains. Once owned by General Sir William Butler, the Butlers of Ormond crest is still evident on the facade of the Round Tower.
This Castle is now a comfortable family home. The drawing room has raspberry coloured walls, marble fireplaces, polished wooden floors and a chintzy covered suite giving it a cosy, relaxed atmosphere. Off this room is a large snooker / billiard room, with full size table. A separate dining room with individual tables overlooks the front lawn. Superb evening meals are prepared where possible with local organically grown produce.
The Castle is a perfect location for historical and cultural pursuits as it lies at the centre of the heritage trail. The Rock of Cashel, Holycross Abbey and the Medieval City of Kilkenny are all near by. There is a variety of leisure activities on offer. Fishing ? five minutes away is the River Suir, one of the best trout rivers in Europe.
For golfers there are a selection of excellent courses within easy driving distance. Horse riding, hill walking, swimming, tennis and fox hunting (in season) can all be arranged.
