Hackett Castle is a 15th century tower house. It is like a keep, but has one major difference. Where a keep is a powerful thick-walled tower with few openings except arrow loops, an Irish tower house in a home for the family, that resembles a keep.

When restoring this tower, we have maintained its status as a fortress. We also have made a decision to make it warm and comfortable. It is a cozy country home ensconced between between castellated battlements, authentic and usable!


Ballytarsna-Hackett Castle is a 15th century fortified tower house. Originally added to the existing castle of 1220, it was built in 1480 to provide the Hackett family with a safe and private accommodation apart from the older castle. The Hacketts were ousted from the then Hackett Castle in 1655 by a small Parliamentarian force, due to their support for the Catholic Confederation of Kilkenny. It fell into ruin in the 18th Century. Lovingly restored by us between 1999 and 2009, it is now available for you to enjoy. The entire top story is now being offered for Bed & Breakfast.
Located on the 5th story, this lofty and marvelous room offers spectacular views of the Tipperary countryside, including the Rock of Cashel. It is a self-contained, ensuite (yes, it has a toilet) assembly of everything you will need to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. A large and elegant four-poster bed is in one corner. The other three corners are occupied by a small library and sitting area, a large free-standing bath tub and finally a 19th century armoire for your clothes. At the end of a narrow passage is your private toilet. In the other direction at the end of a small side chamber is the castle DUNGEON. This grim feature hopefully will not be needed. One occupant has carved the date 1536 into the wall.
Breakfast is served in the cozy ground floor kitchen, ensconced between 9 foot thick defensive walls. Evening meals are available on request and are served in the Great Hall of the castle. This candle lit room is warmed by the large 15th century fireplace. Packed lunches are also available if desired for your outings.
Ballytarsna-Hackett Castle is centrally located in County Tipperary. Situated in the countryside on 3 beautiful acres, we are only 10 minutes from the tourist town of Cashel and Thurles, which contain good pubs and restaurants. We are in the middle of many historic tourist attractions. Dublin airport is 1 hour 40
minutes by car and Shannon airport is 1 hour 25 minutes.

Finally, a word of caution; There are 64 stone steps to reach your room. There is no wheel chair accessibility and you should be fairly fit to make this climb. This building is a listed ancient monument and there is strictly no smoking or pets allowed. We look forward to having you as our guest and hope you will enjoy a unique and rewarding experience in this fine medieval fortress.

See the Guidebook to see all the things to see and do within an hour of the castle. You can easily spend 2 days here seeing them all. There is much history and monuments all around us.

Ostale napomene

Due to the steep 64 stone steps to the top floor our home is not suitable for kids under 8 years..Parents would have to carry younger kids up and down and this is not an easy journey ! Total supervision is required at all times with kids for safety reasons in our unique home.

Please be slow and deliberate on our stairways . In 530 years,no one has been injured on them (as far as we know!). Just be careful. We HIGHLY recommend that you do not try to drag large suitcases up the stairs. Most people repack a small bag to carry up with their needed items for the night. Do not open the windows in the room except for those indicated. The ones with bird wire are fine.
There is NO SMOKING or pets allowed.
This IS NOT a place for loud partying and drinking to excess. If this is what you want, this is not the place for you. This is our home and loud and raucous behaviour will not be tolerated. You will be told to leave.

Wow!!!!! What an experience!! It's almost impossible to put into words just how incredible it is to stay at Ballytarsna-Hackett Castle. The hosts, John and Margaret, are incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the castle and the surrounding area and are more than happy to share their stories and experiences. They gave us a comprehensive tour of the entire castle and explained the process of restoring the castle to its original splendor! We were beyond impressed at the painstaking efforts with which they restored the castle using such authentic methods and attention to detail. We had full access to the Grand Hall (living area) and Master Bedroom which was definitely fit for royalty! Every convenience imaginable was provided for in the room including a library bursting with books on castles, a dressing area with candles and a clawfoot tub, warm housecoats, and chocolates and tea! Honestly, what a beautiful room to top a stunning home. And the best homemade Irish breakfast was made for us in the morning. Good food, great company!!! I highly recommend you visit the castle. Perfect for a romantic getaway or stop on a tour of Ireland and absolutely worth every penny!

What a fantastic place to stay! John & Margaret are great hosts - from a friendly welcome into their truly unique home, to a beautiful room to stay in, to a delicious traditional breakfast the next morning! They have not only preserved a piece of history, but have brought it back to life & are willing to share that with others. You really have to see it for yourself to truly appreciate it. Definitely a must-see place!

Staying at the castle is truly an experience. Things we loved: the tour of the castle, scenic views, John and Margaret's company and great conversation, the authentic feel of the castle, the lovely full breakfast, and the comfort of the bedroom. John and Margaret have thought of everything and provide impeccable hospitality. I just wish we could have stayed longer! This is more than just a nice place to stay; it is truly an experience. I know we will remember it forever!

There aren't enough superlatives in the language to describe our stay. The Room. Absolutely amazing. Beautifully restored and opulently furnished, you'd be forgiven for thinking you've taken a step back in time. As for the Hosts, John and Margaret are brilliant. You won't be wanting for anything, they're attentive, funny and a wealth of knowledge on the history of the castle and it's surroundings. Not to be missed.

Hi,we are John and Margaret and we are delighted to be listing our unique home. I am originally from the US. I am a pilot, stonemason and historian.Margaret from the locality and grew up playing in the ruins of Ballytarsna-Hackett Castle, never thinking anyone would ever live in it, least of all her!! It's a very warm and romantic place to live and a great family home. It's a work in progress and we are very proud of the stage it is at now. We both enjoy meeting new people and we very much look forward to greeting you with tea and home made scones!
We look forward to welcoming you to Ballytarsna-Hackett Castle, our home. Aqua
