Killeavy Castle

This once derelict castle on the slopes of Slieve Gullion in South Armagh has been transformed into a 4-star hotel by Mick and Robin Boyle. The estate now has a new wing with 45 rooms, a spa, restaurant, bar, walled garden and café and an event space for up to 220 people. 

Fresh seasonal vegetables and herbs are picked daily from the vast walled garden or foraged from the extensive onsite woodlands. Estate grown Cheviot lamb and Longhorn beef are also regularly part of the offerings on Executive Chef Darragh Dooley’s menus. He says he believes good food is all about combining fresh natural flavours and produce in an imaginative way.
