This castle has a very interesting history and the Butler family has owned it for years. While the exterior looks like a castle, the interior doesn't, but was still gives you bragging rights to say you stayed in the castle. We were the only guests, having booked 4 rooms, one of which was on the 3rd floor where the inmates (Yes, it was a prison) were housed. Glad we didn't get that room, as it was spooky up there. Owner is quite eccentric, but rooms and breakfast were good.
