Description:
It’s halls and courtyards once echoed with the footsteps of Oliver Cromwell and James II. Today, the former Cormey Castle - now Cabra Castle - offers a tranquil sanctuary to today’s busy wayfarers. Set in 100 acres of parkland, the centre of a 1000 acre demesne, the surroundings are now part of the beautiful Dún a Rí National Forest Park. Comfort and spaciousness are the elegant hallmarks of Cabra Castle - just 1.5 hours from Dublin or Belfast. Unique antiques and paintings adorn the interiors, while the Court Room restaurant distinguishes itself with noble cuisine prepared from the finest local produce. Relax in the Derby Bar or unwind on the sun terrace. In addition to the 20 en suite rooms in the ‘Old House’, the Courtyard Bedrooms are located in what was formerly a 1750 granary and blacksmith. See Lady’s Lake, the enclosed gardens, or follow the more exacting ‘nature trails’ through the forest. Tee off on the Castle’s own 9 hole golf course. Fishing and horse riding are nearby, while antiquaries at Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth are within easy distance.
