Nestled amid 220 acres of lake and woodlands in beautiful County Cork, the luxury 5-Star Castlemartyr Resort is a destination richly steeped in Irish history and tradition, where old world charm meets contemporary elegance. Castlemartyr Resort consists of a grand 18th century manor house that sits adjacent to the striking ruins of an 800-year-old castle.
With a storied history featuring Strongbow, Sir Water Raleigh and the Knights Templar, the resort was magnificently restored in 2022, now offering 108 guest rooms and suites, 33 luxury self-catering residences, Michelin star dining, a charming traditional Irish pub, award-winning spa and country club, golf, tennis and many other estate activities. The original period details of the manor house blend harmoniously with the contemporary luxury touches one would expect to find from a luxury resort, perfectly paired with a warm Irish welcome to create an unforgettable guest experience.
