TOUR ITINERARY

Welcome and Briefing

We meet in the lounge of The Shelbourne Hotel where you will be introduced to your fellow guests. Over coffee, we introduce you to your day ahead to experience Ireland’s Ancient East and this very special family castle. After coffee, we transfer by executive limousine to the castle demesne.

Venturing Inside

You are personally welcomed by the Lord and Lady. They begin by sharing a little of their history over many generations living on the estate. Then, you are brought around outside to experience their glorious gardens.

The Walled Gardens 

As you are escorted through the narrow gate into the walled garden, you experience a sensory avalanche seeing an amazing array of roses, fruit trees, herbaceous borders and a quirky little summerhouse.

Memories

As guests are guided around the estate, it is a visually stunning experience. Photography is encouraged to capture the castle’s crenelations and the rich diversity of the glorious gardens.

Georgian Elegance 

Venturing inside, guests are shown the ornate Georgian interiors which originate from the 17th century when the castle was remodelled. Family portraits abound and each portraits tells a story of the family’s rich and fascinating history.

Time For Relaxation

After the saunter around the gardens and viewing the elegant interiors, it’s time for tea with the Lord and Lady. Who knows what stories may unfold; common interests are shared and lasting memories are made.
