Lough Rynn Castle A Brief History
Lough Rynn Castle hotel situated in County Leitrim about 15 minutes from Carrick on Shannon.
It 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
First of all is a shot of the castle from the back if the gardens, just by the lough.
And from the side slightly obstructed by the trees but looks great.

Just outside the back of the castle is a perfect view out onto 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.
All the tracks around Lough Rynn gardens. All looking so green and perfectly maintained.
