A Beautiful Bedroom in Ballynahinch Castle

Welcome to the 448th Metamorphosis Monday!

It’s very late as I type this, so again will keep the wording in this post brief. I’ll be heading back home very soon and can’t wait to share photos of the wonderful castles and manor homes we’ve stayed in during this trip across Ireland.

In the meantime, for this week’s Metamorphosis Monday I thought I’d share what has thus far, been my most favorite castle, Ballynahinch Castle.


It’s absolutely beautiful, both inside and out. The grounds are wonderful with so many lovely places to walk and hike.


This was the beautiful bedroom where I slept during our stay in Ballynahinch Castle. I absolutely love how it’s decorated. It was so cheerful to return to each evening on those rainy days here in Ireland.



I love the colors of the upholstery, the wallpaper…just love it all!

Once I’m back home, I’ll give you a proper tour of the room including the bathroom with its sweet birdie wallpaper, heated towel racks and the absolutely stunning views!

Update: Awoke very early this morning so adding a couple of more pics to this post of the gorgeous views from my room at Ballynahinch Castle. I loved this view so much, it was really hard to leave this historic castle!

This was the view looking to the left from one of the windows in my room at Ballynahinch Castle.

Looking to the right out the windows across the back of the room…

The bathroom was just as lovely as the bedroom. If I ever renovate my master bath, I’d love to have a heated towel rack.

When we went hiking during our time at Ballynahinch, we saw and heard a lot of birds on the property, so I especially loved how they brought the birds right into the bath in this beautiful wallpaper!
