History of Lough Cutra Castle
Lough Cutra Castle and Estate has a long and varied history with both highs and lows, including famine relief to the billeting of soldiers, a period as a convent and life as a private home. It was designed by John Nash who worked on Buckingham Palace, and was visited by guests such as Lady Augusta Gregory and WB Yeats. The countryside surrounding Lough Cutra contains much evidence of a history dating back hundreds of years. Read more about the Castle's History.
There are several on site activities at Lough Cutra Estate. We offer pike fishing (fly or spinner) on our private 1000 acre lake - you will be the only boat on the lake allowing complete concentration on the sport at hand. During the season there is also driven pheasant and duck shooting combining an energetic day out with a fine lunch in the Castle. Around the Estate there are a variety of trails offering opportunities for walking, running, cycling, bird watching in unspoilt woodlands and parkland. Within the locality there are numerous activities including hiking, sailing, surfing and golf. For further information see the drop down menus above.
