Location & Attractions

Glin Castle is situated on the banks of the River Shannon in Glin, Co. Limerick - the gateway to Southwest Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way. Shannon International Airport is just a 55-minute drive away, Cork Airport a 90-minute drive and Dublin Airport 2 hours and 30 minutes from us. And with connecting flights to most major European and US cities from all three airports, Glin Castle is easily accessible to all. 
 
Glin Castle is an ideal base from which to explore some of Ireland’s most beautiful sights such as the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher (an hour’s distance), the Dingle Peninsula (an hour and a half drive), the 15th century Bunratty Castle & Folk Park (45 minutes drive), Killarney town and the Ring of Kerry (an hour and fifteen minutes drive) and Adare Village heritage town named Ireland’s prettiest village (35 minutes drive).
 
Local amenities include several golf courses within an hours drive: Adare Golf course is 35 minutes, Ballybunion approx. half an hour, Tralee Golf course an hour, Doonbeg approx. an hour.
 
The ferry across the Shannon into Clare leaves every half an hour and takes 20 minutes. This opens up the Wild Atlantic Way to the north and the UNESCO 'World Heritage' landscape of the Burren. To the south lies Listowel, Tralee, Dingle and Killarney and the southern arm of the Wild Atlantic Way.
 
Bespoke day trip sample itineraries with suggested activities/evening entertainments at the castle can be put together for guests on request.
