CnP: They may love doing it just like you did! Before the castle opened its doors as a hotel you should have carried out a proper restoration, could you tell me about it?
Rory O'Sullivan (ROS): This was a huge undertaking for us, although it had been operating as a castle hotel prior, to taking it over, it was badly in need of repair. The roof needed to be completely repaired, all the electrical and plumbing work needed to be redone, a new kitchen was fitted and each of the bedrooms were modernised to accommodate todays discerning guests. Authentic Irish Castle are protected/listed buildings in Ireland, we worked closely with the local council and planning authorities; to maintain the heritage of the castle.
