Classiebawn Castle sits on a Rocky Promontory overlooking Donegal Bay. It can be seen for miles ahead. The gate house is very cute and had a lovely iron gate.

Took a detour on our tour to see Classiebawn Castle which was the home of Lord Mountbatten. The coastline is breathtaking and beautiful and the castle stands alone as an imposing site.

Beautiful, Coastal, Classiebawn Castle set high on Mullaghmore, County Sligo. Such a pity it is not open to the public for tours. It is owned privately.

My wife and I were last here just over fourteen years ago, and the one thing I remember is Classiebawn Castle. Many of us can remember the shock when we heard that Lord Mountbatten had been murdered by terrorists back in August 1979. That put...More

Castle looks stunning on the landscape, just a shame you can't get access to it with it being private.
