Sigginstown Castle in the News

There have been a number of references to the castle before and after we became owners!

Read our 2018 Newsletter 

The newsletter accompanied our Christmas Card featuring Yvonne Nolan's wonderful photo of the castle in the snow.  This was during the "Beast from the East" which hit Ireland in March 2018. Instead of plowing fields they were digging out of ten foot drifts! Yvonne trekked out and sent us the photo which we knew had to be featured on the next holiday card!

On an internet search before our October 2015 trip Liz sees that the castle is back on the market!  She inquires again to Keane Auctioneers and (hurrah!) hears that it is indeed for sale again. 

We arrange Gordon's birthday trip to Ireland with a two day visit to Wexford and stay at Killiane Castle nearby. Everyone is charming and we fall in love with the property and Wexford.

The rest, as they say, is history....

"7 castles that cost less than a two-bed gaff in Dublin"

May 10 2014

Around this time we were looking at castles in Galway and Cork. We saw Sigginstown castle for sale and researched it a bit.  We contacted the auctioneers but were told there was already an offer on it and we could not see it. Alas!!!
