Ballaghmore Castle is a unique and beautiful place. Set in the Irish midlands in County Laois, it is the perfect setting for a relaxing rural break.

Ballaghmore Castle is a unique and beautiful area located between Roscrea and Borris-in-Ossory in County Laois. Ballaghmore Castle was built in 1480 by the Gaelic chieftain Mac Giollaphadraig (now called Fitzpatrick), meaning son of the servant of Patrick. A sheela-na-gig carved in stone is on the front facing wall, a pagan fertility symbol to ward off evil.

The Castle can be rented weekly or for weekends, private parties and weddings and can be self-catered or staffed.
