Description

Rincolisky Castle is a 500 year old médiéval tower house .Its best feature is it's location in the remote region of south west Cork in Ireland. Being surrounded by the sea and built on cliffs overlooking Roaring Water Bay, opposite Kilcoe Castle it has 360 degree sea views. Built in 1556, but recently renovated with contemporary and medieval furniture, it serves as a perfect location for a family who love nature and the sea. The most spectacular room is the newly built one on top of the castle overlooking the islands of Heir, Cape Clear, Sherkin and Horse. Sunbathing or just looking out over the scenery and skyline on this terrace is such a memorable experience. Filmstars, writers, millionaires and those individuals who like to get off the beaten track a bit, enjoy this end of West Cork. Some have settled or maintain holiday homes in this area. Sailing, swimming, golfing or boat trips to the islands are available daily in the late spring, summer and early autumn.

shades of blue and green, will enjoy a holiday in this rustic, warm and cosy castle. Due to the Castlés steep staircases it is not suitable for Young children and elderly people. Sleeping facilities are mainly rustic, thus the Castle has a mixture of a luxurious and rustic ambiance.

Location description from owner

The Province of Munster region

Rincolisky Castle is located at Roaring Water Bay opposite Kilcoe Castle, on rocks beside the sea. The area is called Church Cross, near the town of Skibbereen in West Cork. From the top of the castle you have a view on Horse Island, Heir, the Sceems, Shirkin and Cape Clear. West Cork has remained like Ireland had been during the seventies, beautiful sandy beaches, stone walls, old cottages,green fields and deep blue sea.

Cork

The area around Rincolisky Castle is an ancient one, it used to be ruled by the O'Driscoll clan in 1556, consisting of influential merchants, writers and journalists who ruled in this area. The castle was inhabited by the family but also used to serve as a watch tower to control incoming freight at Roaring Water Bay. Thus it is not only a historic monument but serves as a perfect place for holiday makers due to its mild climate and beautiful scenery. Lovely walks along the coastline enabling views over the whole area during all seasons are contributing to a relaxing holiday . Ferries are leaving from Cumamore Pier to Heir Island several times per day. On demand they will bring you to Baltimore or Shirkin Island which is 10 minutes away by boat.Dinghies or zodiacs can be hired from Atlantic Boat who will be moored in the bay on demand. One laser dinghy can be rented for experienced sailors.
