We stayed here during the beginning of August. We were not impressed with the "Castle-ness" of it but we loved our stay. We did however find some "ruins…" on the grounds. Traveling as two ladies we were given two queen beds. The room was spotless especially the bathroom!. The reception was pretty. There were several weddings going on and it... More

I had my wedding in Dunboyne Castle in April. I had looked at many venues in the Kildare/Meath area and was hoping to avoid Dunboyne as a few close friends had previously married there!! We knew as soon as we walked in to view it, however, that it was the right venue for us, as it just ticked all of... More

This hotel was absolutely gorgeous. On arrival there was a small blip where the receptionist thought that our room had been given to someone else, but after a few minutes it was all sorted and we were all happily in our rooms. Myself and my two brothers were given one room and my parents had another. Our rooms were gorgeous... More

Stayed for one night. We were particularly impressed by the staff. We had afternoon tea in the bar, dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and at all times the staff did everything they could to accommodate one of our party who requires a gluten-free diet.
