Level One
• The main door of the castle leads to a vestibule as well as the staircase itself. Right as one enters the main door is the murder hole above, now sealed with clear glass. From the vestibule, one may access an office, a half bathroom (toilet and wash basin), and the main hall
• The main hall is a very large well appointed room with a high arched ceiling. Part impressions of the willow branches that were used during its initial construction are still visible. The hall has a huge fireplace and provides several contiguous spaces for conversation and relaxation including two window alcoves, and two very large antique cow-hide couches. Right next to the main throne is the other “throne”, which is no longer serviceable, but has easy access to a bell service to ring for help!
• The main hall connects to what was formally the sheep dipping shed but is now a very large kitchen, dining, and second drawing room. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas cook-top and a double oven, two large Belfast sinks made of beaten copper, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing/drying machine. A large dining table can easily sit 14 or up to 18 people if needed. A high ceiling with a row of fifteen skylight windows brings in plenty of natural light into the space. In addition, a cast iron stove on the northwest corner of the room provides additional warmth to those who may want to relax; read or watch television
• The kitchen in turn opens to a courtyard which is bordered by the bawn wall and also provides access to an additional large room (formally a shed). This room provides a small kitchenette and dining area, and a spacious bedroom with a queen (US) or king (Ireland) size bed, easily accessed by those with disabilities as well as an en-suite bathroom. For those who fancy a game of pool, there is a lovely pool table, readily kitted for a game. Behind this room is a tennis court with a hard surface
