- Posted on: 10/02/2023 - $itemValue.title

This Spring, get away from it all with an unforgettable break at Killeavy Castle Estate.

The centrepiece of 365 acres of mixed farm and woodland in the heart of County Armagh’s stunning Ring of Gullion, Killeavy Castle Estate is the ideal place to retreat, relax and reconnect with nature.

Located just one hour from Dublin and 10 minutes outside Newry City, a break at Killeavy Castle Estate offers guests luxury accommodation to suit every taste…and so much more.

Comprising a 4-star 45-room boutique style Hotel, two lodges, and a 19th century Castle, Killeavy Castle Estate has luxurious accommodations to suit every style. Whichever option you choose, you’re in for a comfortable, most welcoming stay and can enjoy all our Estate amenities including our 2 AA Rosette award-winning Restaurant, Bistro Bar and Spa.

Enjoy the reawakening of nature as Spring blossoms in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that surrounds Killeavy Castle Estate. Make time to get outdoors and explore the mythical woodlands and surrounding trails in the fresh Spring weather as nature reawakens in the Ring of Gullion, bringing colour and new life to the flora and fauna of our Estate.

After spending some time delighting in nature, return to the comfort of the hotel to unwind in our thermal spa suite, enjoying the mountain view from our hydro pool or outdoor hot tub, before enjoying a meal in our Bistro Bar or Restaurant where you can take in the sweeping views of the Estate as you dine.

With plenty to see and do on the estate and in the surrounding area, Killeavy Castle Estate has everything you need for a relaxing break this Spring.

Our Spring Escape package includes an overnight stay in one of our luxurious superior guestrooms, with a traditional breakfast each morning of your stay and a seven-course ‘Taste of the Estate’ dinner in our 2 AA Rosette award-winning Restaurant. All guests have full use of our Spa thermal facilities and access to our woodland walks and surrounding trails during their stay. The Spring Escape is available from £280 per couple for a one-night break with a 20% discount on bookings for two-night breaks and 25% off a three-night stay.

Foraging, forest bathing, mindfulness sessions and e-bike hire are all experiences that are on offer with a break to Killeavy Castle Estate. 

Ideally located just one hour from either Belfast or Dublin airports, Killeavy Castle is the perfect base to explore the East Coast of Ireland. A day trip north to visit Belfast will introduce visitors to a vibrant city with a great shopping and entertainment scene. Steeped in history and culture, the world-leading Titanic Belfast, Ulster Museum, Botanic Gardens and St. George’s Market are all worth a visit. 

An hour-long journey south, guests will find a warm welcome in Dublin City, Ireland’s capital, which offers plenty of popular tourist attractions such as the Guinness Storehouse, Book of Kells, Trinity College and the historic Dublin Castle all prove popular visitor attractions.

In County Armagh, the home county of Killeavy Castle Estate, guests can explore the Cathedral City of Armagh, and visit the famous Armagh Orchards or the Armagh Planetarium. For fans of the hit television series, Game of Thrones, the first Game of Thrones tour is located in the Linen Mill Studios Banbridge and will give fans of the show much to see as they undertake a set tour. 

For those who love the outdoors and are looking for more of a challenge, a short drive east takes you to County Down where you can hike in the Mountains of Mourne and take on the mighty Slieve Donard before visiting St. Patrick’s Grave and Visitor Centre just a short drive away in Downpatrick. 

Killeavy Castle Estate is the perfect location for a couple’s retreat, a break with friends or a romantic getaway this Spring. A break at our Estate offers luxury, relaxation and the joy of getting back to nature as the Ring of Gullion begins to bloom in Spring, as well as providing easy access to explore the historic and vibrant cities and attractions of the surrounding area.
