About Castle Durrow
Now one of Ireland’s most luxurious Irish Country House Hotels, Castle Durrow was originally built by Capt. William Flower (later to become Viscount Ashbrook) in 1716 as his family home in the Midlands of Ireland. Its pre Palladian design and formal gardens were the height of fashion in their day and the grey / blue cut stone contrasts with the breath-taking views of the landscape.
Today it has been completely restored and decorated by Peter & Shelly Stokes in a comfortable, relaxing and contemporary style with modern way of life and fashion in mind without overlooking its past. The informal mood makes your enjoyment of the Irish Countryside a delight.
