A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE HISTORY OF KILRONAN

Kilronan comes from the Gaelic 'Cill Ronain', which means Ronan's Abbey, the ruins of which are close by, as well as St Ronan's Holy well & the hollow stone he used for the baptisim of his followers. The original Castle was built in the early 1800's and belonged to Colonel King Tenison. It was extended by the 12th Earl ok Kingston in 1876 with a five storey over basement, baronial tower and battlements. During the Edwardian period, the earl & Countess of Kingston enjoyed the estate until political & social change saw the closure and sale of Kilronan & other country estates both in Ireland & abroad.

The Tenision family originated in Oxfordshire in the era of Edward 1st but fought with the Irish Brigade in France and on behalf of The Pretender, Bonnie Prince Charlie. Their colourful history continued through involvement in the Peninsula Wars in Spain & Portugal. They were represented at The Battle of Waterloo where Napoleon was finally defeated and served as members of The Irish Guards in the Boer War. One was a close friend of the poet John Milton.

Most generations tended to squander their inheritances but then again they or their sons would marry an heiress and their fortunes would bloom again. When Lord Brookborough was Governor General of Ireland it was reckoned that Kilronan Demense was the best shoot in Ireland. In one four day shoot it is said that they shot almost three thousand pheasants. Nearby Lough Allen is the first lake on the Shannon system and one which the Norsemen used to access the rich heritage of Ireland.

This is the region from which the artists, poets and musicians emerged, including Kavanagh, Yeats, McGahern, O'Carolan and Percy French. Roscommon was famous for music in ancient times and Irelands greatest harpist, Turlough O'Carolan, is buried nearby. He was welcomd into the castles of Irish Chieftains like the O'Rourkes of Breifne and his music will live on in special events planned for Kilronan. Kilronan will be offering the hospitality and traditional welcome that has made its sister estate, Lough Rynn so popular.

  • To all the future Kilronan Brides... Do not worry. This hotel and all of their staff are fantastic. We got married in Kilronan Castle on the 18th March 2011, and I cannot express how good of time we and all of our guests had. We arrived on St Patrick's Day, had dinner in the restaurant the night before with approx 40 of our guests.... down to the Dungeon Bar, live music and some craic and ceol was a wonderful way to start off the weekend. Up early, and I had family breakfast in the restaurant - was lovely to have everyone together, the hotel staff made us feel like it was a home from home.. no request was too much. The day itself passed without a hitch.. we had the piper as we arrived, champagne reception - Samantha our wedding co-ordinator had saved some canapes and drinks for the bridal party while the guests got seated.. and much to our surprise had added pictures to all of our table names which was 80's tv programmes. It was such a wonderful touch. Our guests are still talking about how good the food, staff and hotel in general was. Our day was wonderful, I wouldnt change a thing.. so glad we picked Kilronan Castle as the venue for our reception - would have no hesitation in recomending...Thanks to all once again, especially Samantha.. we look forward to returning very soon
