Welcome to the blog!

Situated only ten minutes from the Hotel, Killua Castle is the perfect day out when staying with us. Killua Castle has been described as one of the most romantic demesnes in Ireland. This former home of the family of Lawrence of Arabia lay in ruins for over 60 years before being masterfully restored and brought back to life. The castle is surrounded by beautiful undulating landscape, that is now home to rare breeds of moiled cows, Jacob sheep, old Irish Goats and parkland deer, all reared in a sustainable and regenerative manner.

You can now book a guided tour of the castle which consists of an approximately 50 min. visit to the main rooms of Killua Castle, all located on the ground floor, with an optional visit to the 18th c. kitchen in the cellars. The rooms house a collection of artwork and artefacts from the Medieval and Early Renaissance period. The visit may be customised according to your interests. The visit costs €50 per person and lasts approximately 50 minutes. You can book the tour online here on their website or why not consider our Lawrence of Arabia package here at The Lawrence Hotel.
