The beauty of a resort
The beautiful 17th-century manor house is at the heart of the Castlemartyr Resort experience, sitting in the shadows of a crumbling castle built 800 years ago by The Knights Templar under Richard Earl de Clare, known as Strongbow. With 220 private acres to enjoy, you can explore the lush private landscape, where ancient trees meet meandering streams and a formal garden and lake draw local wildlife.
Embrace the outdoors through a range of exciting estate activities. From tennis to kayaking, cycling to archery, croquet on the lawn and clay pigeon shooting, Castelmartyr’s extensive grounds are designed to be enjoyed. Take a stroll around the beautiful formal gardens. Walk through the adjacent Castlemartyr Wood. Jog through the estate. Breathe in the freshest air and embrace the peace and quiet and unspoiled views.
Castlemartyr's historic grounds offer peace, tranquility, and unspoiled views.
Each of the bedrooms and suites at Castlemartyr Resort & Spa has been individually designed with many of the manor house suites offering sweeping views of this wonderful natural playground.
