Location / Nearby Charleville Castle

Description

Charleville Castle, the Masterpiece of Francis Johnston, once derelict, vacant, closed-off and decaying, has been rescued from near ruin by volunteers of the Charleville Castle Community. Built originally as a dramatic Power Center in the Midlands - a most important Irish symbol of the Union with Great Britain 1801 - it is a project of the Peace Process - authenticate, intact and "of the people". The long avenue to the forecourt is now fully open - some areas require supervised access or guides [set donation] - Volunteers rotate on duty 24/7 - 365 days a year - sharing actively with the public. It is famous for its ghosts stories and unique architecture - it is not a state-funded project and depends entirely on volunteers and supporters - the local community and many thousands more openly express love and support for the Castle. Come visit - we hope you will get a real feeling of what it is to keep a big Castle like this alive - hopefully your visit can be enhanced by a guided tour.

Castle closed due to Covid

Saving the five star review for when we get into the castle.

Beautiful walk up to the gates of the castle- some fairy doors scattered around. Upon arrival the view of the castle is breathtaking.

Group visit by CRRG Dublin motorcycling touring group

My partner and I made an unexpected stop to Charleville castle, rang the doorbell hoping to see inside and these two lovely ladies let us in and gave us a guided tour throughout the castle. We had many laughs and heard very many tales about the history of the family and the rooms that were available to the public. They had great knowledge about the history of the surrounding areas as well which we greatly appreciated! Sam and Nadine were so warm and welcoming to us to the point where we felt as though we were speaking to our friends not just a "regular tour guide with no emotion" both myself and my partner would absolutely recommend going to visit this magical place! Prior to going to Charleville Castle we visited another location, the staff there had no idea about the history but Sam and Nadine did. They told us stories of not just the one they worked at but others I would go back just to pick their brains more!!! Thank you so much ladies for all your work and obvious love of where you are.

Fantastic Experience. Well worth a a visit if your in the area. Our guide (Santiago) from Argentina was probably the best & most passionate guide I’ve ever had. Full of knowledge & stories relating to the castle & surrounding areas. Loved it.

Must see!

Hard to get a reply when trying to book our visit by e-mail and phone. But worth the trip and a fascinating castle. Our tour guide, Santiago (from Argentina!!) was brilliant - funny, entertaining, lively but also had a great knowlegde about the castle and Tullamore. Well worth the visit!!
