Markree Castle – Take a Sneak Peak


There is huge excitment happening at Markree Castle in Collooney, Co Sligo, as we are nearing the end of the project which has undergone an extensive restoration.  The Corscadden family own and run four Castle Hotels in Ireland and this is third Castle that Audrey Gaffney Associates have been asked to design.

Have a sneaky look at the work currently ongoing in the Castle, which is due for completion this March 2017, the attention to detail is amazing,

Currently sorting out the furniture and antiques and I know, it looks like a pile of rubbish but I promise you, in a few weeks this will all be lovingly put together, french polished, re-upholstered and put in it’s pride of place.

Some of the antique furniture purchased for the castle, are  just beautiful, check out the inlay detail and carvings.

When you see these items re-upholstered, you won’t believe the difference it makes.
