Nestled amid East Cork’s woodlands, the luxury 5-Star Castlemartyr Resort is a destination richly steeped in Irish history and tradition. Situated on 220 acres, Castlemartyr Resort consists of a grand 17th century country manor house that sits adjacent to the ruins of an 800-year-old-castle.
With a storied history that includes Strongbow, Walter Raleigh, the Knight’s Templar and more, the Castlemartyr Resort was officially opened for guests in 2008. While ensuring the grounds and buildings have been tastefully updated, they have been magnificently restored and elegantly enhanced to offer 103 guest rooms and suites, along with 47 luxury self-catering lodges.
Castlemartyr Resort also includes a 10 treatment room Spa, with ESPA and Germaine de Cappucini treatments, a fitness studio and pool overlooking the gardens, and a Ron Kirby designed inland links golf course. The hotel offers four dining options: the Bell Tower Restaurant serving modern Irish cuisine with a twist, our Italian casual dining restaurant, Franchini’s, the relaxed yet elegant Knights Bar, situated in a restored chapel, and our informal Clubhouse offering a lighter dining option.
