Castle Hotel Photography

I want to share with you the unique experience of photographing the amazing, breathtaking Lough Cutra Castle, which is one of the most remarkable locations in Ireland. Castle hotel photography is one of my specialties. It may seem like castle hotel photography of photographing castles would be the same as photographing any boutique hotels. Although it has many similarities they have their own unique challenges.


While the pictures alone can speak for themselves, I wish to confirm and share the feelings this beautiful location transmits, and the way in which it makes you feel.Lough_Cutra_Castle_10

A Fairytale Location


Lough Cutra Castle Hotel is located in beautiful Western Ireland, in a stunning setting that was fascinating to me and my camera as well. It was sheer pleasure photographing this magnificent place. Not only is the setting utterly beautiful, but the castle is the source of many interesting stories. As a matter of fact, the area holds sheer historical evidence of the presence of Celtic people, from 866 AD.

The castle is the perfect spot for those in search of escaping the run-of-the-mill routine, and those who wish to enter an equally new and old world. It genuinely feels as if you have literally turned back time, and you’ve entered a different century. And in a way, that is true. It’s a feeling difficult to describe, but you can see for yourself the awesomeness of this place in the pictures I’ve taken there.

The castle is the private residence of the Gwyn-Jones family, dating for over 200 years. Focusing on maintaining the earlier character of the place was a top priority for the owners of the castle. Being built during the Gothic revival times, it was designed by the talented John Nash, whose unique and distinguished architectural style contributes to the magnitude of the castle. The stunning style combined with the privacy offered by the secluded setting of the castle certainly adds up to the charm of the place.

Special Guests

Another great thing about Castle Hotel Photography in shooting guests while enjoing a wide range of attractive activities during their stay, including fishing, kayaking, whiskey tasting, clay pigeon shooting, hiking and others.
