If you are familiar with Lee Oskar's famous song - "A Haunted House" then you will definitely get that vibe here. Nesbitt Castle was awesome.

Nesbitt Castle is a little bit of quirky and a whole lot of nice! Fabulous gardens, great building and very friendly staff. This is a hotel but day visitors are welcome to enjoy the garden/restaurant teas and meals. It also makes an original setting for celebrations such as weddings

The food does not disappoint. It is not fine dining but the food is well prepared. The garden setting is best as the inside can be a bit suffocating.

Having spent much time as a kid in the ruins of this place, it was great to see how well it has been restored and is now fully functional. Beautiful gardens nestled in the drought ravaged province. Staff very friendly and happy to show the place off to us. Well done guys
