Guided tours

Killua Castle has been described as one of the most romantic demesnes in Ireland. This former home of the family of Lawrence of Arabia lay in ruins for over 60 years before being masterfully restored and brought back to life. The castle is surrounded by beautiful undulating landscape, that is now home to rare breeds of moiled cows, Jacob sheep, old Irish Goats and parkland deer, all reared in a sustainable and regenerative manner.

Visit the Interior of The Castle

The guided tour of the castle consists of an approximately 50 min. visit to the main rooms of Killua Castle, all located on the ground floor, with an optional visit to the 18th c. kitchen in the cellars. The rooms house a collection of artwork and artefacts from the Medieval and Early Renaissance period. The visit may be customised according to your interests. The visit costs €49 per person and lasts approximately 50 minutes. Please see FAQs below for more information.

Full Day Visit to Killua Castle and Demesne

Welcome to Killua Castle and its demesne, where history and innovation converge. Our mission is to successfully bring Killua into the 21st century by making the estate environmentally and economically sustainable. A very important part of the transformation of Killua has been the shift from intensive farming to the implementation of regenerative farming.

This approach aims to enhacing biodiversity, improving water retention, sequestering carbon in the soil and creating habitats for wildlife.
