Killeavy Castle Estate Killeavy Co Armagh

Killeavy Castle Estate

First time visitors expecting a conventional castle hotel are in for a surprise at Killeavy Castle, but it will be a pleasant one as there is so much to discover - and the opening of Killeavy Castle Estate is set to give discerning travelers, from within Ireland and abroad, the joy of discovering the Ring of Gullion, and the beautiful Slieve Gullion Forest Park. And it's all thanks to the vision and determination of the owners, Australian-based local man Mick Boyle and his wife Robin, who have restored what was a derelict 19th century castle to create a boutique venue - and, alongside it, a modern hotel of character that's been developed around the castle's old coach house and mill buildings.
A perfect getaway, set in one of Ireland's loveliest yet least known areas - and just minutes from Newry.
