About Lough Cutra Castle
The countryside surrounding Lough Cutra Castle contains evidence of a history dating back to the Irish-Celtic mythology of the Tuatha Dé Danaan.
Old churches, cells and monasteries are prolific in the area, with some of the islands on the lake containing the remnants of stone altars.
The history of the actual estate can be traced back as far as 866 A.D. when the ruined church of Beagh was sacked by the Danes and war raged through the district for nearly 1,000 years.
The Castle itself was built during the Gothic revival period and is idyllically situated overlooking the Estate’s 1,000 acre lake (the largest privately owned lake in Europe), home to the open-water swim of the Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon.
