Welcome to The Black Castle...
the perfect venue for your Irish elopement
My Soul. I summon to the winding ancient stair;
Set all your mind upon the steep ascent,
Upon the broken, crumbling battlement,
Upon the breathless starlit air,
Upon the star that marks the hidden pole;
The Black Castle
Nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of north Tipperary, The Black Castle was built by the O'Kennedys in the 16th century.
With it's private, rugged setting, The Black Castle is the ultimate sanctuary from the modern world.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars. Oscar Wilde
a unique experience
Choose the ancient Celtic handfasting ceremony...where the term "tying the knot" originates.
Our ancient, stone spiral stairs are perfect to inspire an homage to the most romantic painting, The Meeting on the Turret Stairs.

I declare this tower is my symbol; I declare This winding, gyring, spiring treadmill of a stair is my ancestral stair;
