FOR 370 YEARS, the Cooper family have been living in this mighty castle in county Sligo in the North West of Ireland. Markree has been lovingly restored by the current owner Charles Cooper and his wife Mary to become one of the finest country house hotels in Ireland.
Markree Castle offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere for get-awaybreaks and it\'s location, in the heart of the countryside that inspired the great poet and playwright W.B. Yeats, makes it an ideal \'home-from-home\' for longer stays. We also cater for weddings and functions, and can offer exclusive use of our facilities and grounds.
A castle since the 14th century, with the most recent redesign taking place in the late 1800s, Markree is an architectural gem where the very finest in Irish Victorian architecture is to be seen. Our Rococo-style dining room and recently renovated chapel are renowned examples of the work of local and foreign craftsmen alike.
The spacious guests rooms have all modern comforts while retaining their old-world charm. All rooms are individually decorated with a view out on the beautiful formal gardens or the parkland and the river Unsin which flows by the castle walls.
With easy access to local golf courses and horse-riding facilities available on the estate, Markree is a gate-way to the West and North-West.
