  • Hello I wanted to know who I need to contact to book a tour in this castle. Is there any phone number or email? Please contact me ASAP on this email:

  • We drove a long way just to see leap castle June 18, 2012. The place looked completely vacant. Not knowing who or where to call, we gave up after knocking. We asked the neighbor for information and she was extremely unfriendly and unhelpful. I was STILL glad that I at least caught a glimpse.

  • P.S. we were visiting from the states. Irish history is fascinating and we visited several castles while there, among them Cashel and Cahir. Leap definitely has a different “feel” about it. Good luck in the restoration. I wish you luck!

  • Michelle Crowther:

  • After visiting Leap Castle in June, I spent some time searching through my photos. I have a photo that, upon enlargement, looks as if there is a man in the upper right window wearing an Elizabethan cap peering out the window. I only found this by chance when expanding photos on my iPad. Has anyone else reported this?

  • Trevor:

    My girlfriend and I will be traveling from Sweden and will be coming through the area on Wednesday October 30th. We are making a detour on our way between Dublin a end Donegal with the hope of seeing the castle. It would be fantastic if we could organise a tour. My girlfriend is extremely interested in the supernatural and I know she would love to hear the stories and history surrounding the castle. This also coincides with 10 years since we met and I was hoping this would be a perfect surprise for her…

    Thanks Trevor

  • Roisin Coleman:

    Hi, I’m just wondering how we can book in for a visit? It would be an experience to remember. Thank you.

  • We haven’t been there, yet, but plan to the first weekend of August in 2014. Was hoping to get a tour and inquiring about the cost of the tour. In addition, I heard a rumor that owner was a reknown pennywhistler. Was also hoping to sit on a couple of songs with my bodran.

  • Tammy O'Banion:

    I read a comment that someone was allowed to take wedding photos at the castle. My hubby and I were hoping to have a small vow renewal ceremony there. It’s his dream to visit and soak in his heritage, and I can’t think of a better place. Do you know if this is ever allowed? We ‘re looking at Spring 2015. Thanks!!

  • Mark O'Shaughnessy:

    Sean – thanks again for allowing us in your home and to tour Leap Castle. Julie, Madighan, Brody and I all really enjoyed our visit on Nov 29. We wish it could have been longer, but that’s how it is with the little ones. Good luck with future renovations!

    All the best,


  • Any chance of a paranormal investigation of the castle if so we would like to book …

  • Mary Ann Thompson:

    Dear Mr. Ryan,
    My son, daughter-in-law, and I will be visiting Ireland and will be near Leap Castle on Saturday, May 24, and would very much like to visit Leap Castle. If May 24 is not convenient, we could alter our plans and visit on May 24. We look forward to our visit to Ireland and, especially, to Leap Castle.

    (This is the third email I have sent and have received no response. I also got five different phone numbers and don’t know which is the correct one. I hope this message gets through.)
