It is really hard to narrow down the top 5 entire castles to rent, as we have such a fantastic range of options. Below are my current top 5 recommendations to whet your appetite!
Aldourie Castle – Loch Ness – sleeps up to 29 GUESTS
Aldourie Castle is a beautiful historic castle situated on the southern shore of Loch Ness. Aldourie offers grandeur, comfort, beauty and the best of tranquillity in a breathtaking setting!

Lismore Castle – sleeps up to 27 guests
Lismore Castle in Ireland truly offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The castle oozes unique charm and appeal in a magnificent setting. With accommodation for up to 27 people, the elegant rooms reveal a past that includes many families' histories. The stunning décor and rich furnishing are complemented by the staff's impeccable attention to detail.
Lough Cutra Castle – Outside Galway – Sleeps up to 18 guests
Lough Cutra Castle is slightly different to my other suggestions, as the castle does allow you to self-cater but also gives the option of full catering. This Irish castle is located close to Galway and conveniently located near to Shannon Airport, meaning the castle is the ideal property for a holiday with friends and family, while offering the luxurious facilities to meet the needs of private parties, gala dinners, weddings and much more.
