Formerly known as Cormey Castle, its history dates back to the pre-Cromwellian times of the 16th century. Purchased in the early 19th century by Colonel Joseph Pratt, it was rebuilt and renamed Cabra Castle. The castle's long legacy lends a mature, cultured air that's felt in strolling its magnificent hallways and stairwells. There is no better way to get the full experience of this incredible place than to spend the night enveloped in castle's history, where modern amenities and views of nearby Dun an Ri Forest Park and the Irish countryside are yours to njoy.
