About Stephanie Jaax
I have inherited this tower house in 2000 as it belonged to the land of White Hall house, which my parents bought in 1962. After the main house was sold, I renovated this ruin which required a lot of patience and persistence with all the official procedures I had to undertake as to be granted permission, this being a listed historical building. During these first years I was spending the summer holidays with my family in a caravan on site in order to oversee the building work. No electricity or running water was available during these first years, but it was important for all of us to pass through this period in order to appreciate the castle now in it' s final state. I speak French, German and English so please feel free to write to me in the language you feel comfortable.

Why Stephanie Jaax chose Skibbereen
I chose to renovate this ruin because I spent my holidays in West Cork since 1962. This area is still unspoilt by the developments of the Celtic tiger that invaded Ireland in the 90's and still reminds me of the country I knew in the sixties and seventies. The tower house is ideal for someone who appreciates a combination of culture and nature, who seeks a hide-away from stress and daily routines and who loves sailing and the sea. A laser dinghy is available, other dinghies are available for rent in Baltimore. The different islands in the bays are ideal for picnic or overnight camping.
What makes this castle unique
When I first sat down in the new top room of Rincolisky Castle shortly after it was finished, I said to the builder, that I am the luckiest woman in West Cork to be able to enjoy such a view. Even at night time, when I sleep on my Futon mattress on the floor, I communicate with the moon and the stars, which seem so close. The beauty of the moon's reflection on the calm water during the night is spectacular, during the day it is the sun lighting up the water. Opposite lies Kilcoe castle, facing Roaring Water Bay, it's real beauty can only be seen from the sea, not from the land.
