Killiane Castle

Just a few miles from Wexford town, Kathleen and Jack Mernagh’s magical farm B&B is the perfect place for stressed townies, especially with children in tow – a real castle, a 17th century house to stay in, and lots to do.


The past and present mix effortlessly in Killiane Castle: the farmhouse and Towerhouse are 17th century and some of the 13th century Norman Castle still stands. Inside there’s a spacious entrance hall, an elegant, comfortably furnished residents’ sitting-room with an open fire, and there’s a small room down a few steps used as a TV room. Climb up the 17th century staircase to the second and third floors, where individually-designed bedrooms have comfortable beds, en-suite facilities and great views over the countryside.


There’s a driving range, croquet, tennis court, lots of garden furniture (for all times of day and wind direction), very comfortable accommodation and plenty to read in both the sitting room and bedrooms (history of castle, area, books and magazines).


This friendly family always have plans for further improvements and they have started to repair the castle, with a view to restoration.


The working farm allows visitors to see a modern dairy in action and their own hens supply the eggs for the delicious breakfasts that Kathleen Mernagh serves here in a warm, cosy dining-room, buffet-style.


No dinners are offered but a recent addition (very nicely done) is a barbecue area at the back of the house; alternatively the restaurants of Wexford are very close, or Kathleen will advise guests on the best local choices.


Killiane is just a few miles from Wexford town so it’s ideal for an overnight on the way to or from Rosslare Harbour (about 10 minutes), although it’s unlikely that you’ll want to leave after one night here.

Rooms 8 (1 shower only, 2 family rooms, all no smoking); B&B €45-50 pps, ss €15. Children welcome (under 2s free in parents room, cots available free of charge, baby sitting arranged). Free broadband wi/fi. Dogs permitted (stay in outhouse/kennel). 10 bay driving range, pitch & putt, croquet, cycling, tennis, garden, walking. Golf and equestrian nearby. *Self catering also available in 3 courtyard apartments. Closed 1 Nov - 1 Mar. MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
