Lough Rynn Castle A Brief History
Lough Rynn lies on the original historic grounds of the medieval estate and castle of Mac Raghnaill family.
The Mac Raghnaill castle was situated at the opposite side to where the castle now lies. And below is all that remains of that original castle.
In 1883 Robert Bermingham, viscount Ckement built a mock Tudor house looking straight out over the lough. This is now where the current Lough Rynn castle is.
1889 Lough Rynn was massively refurbished and and new wing was built.
The estate was bought in the early 21st century by the Hanly family. They renovated and modernised the castle and in 2006 Lough Rynn was opened as a hotel.

Our Trip Around The Grounds
The castle in all it’s beauty from the back of the gardens. This is the original part of the castle and this is the view you would get from Lough Rynn
And from the side slightly obstructed by the trees but looks great. You can see in this photo the later extension of the castle and upgrades since it opened as a hotel.
The front of Lough rynn, showing again the original part of the castle building.
Just outside the back of the castle is a perfect view out onto the lough. This is the perfect vantage point looking out from the castle and into the Lough.
Take a walk down to the Lough and you get this stunning view out onto the lough.
Just off to the right of the lough was the old boathouse. Still in great condition, it has been brilliantly maintained. This would of been in regular use back in the hay day.
All the tracks around Lough Rynn gardens. As you can see all looking so green and perfectly maintained. The one thing about these grounds ar how well maintained they are.
