Lough Rynn Castle (Walk Round The Grounds)

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.

The old castle at lough rynn

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.

And again from a different angle.

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.
