We stayed here on a hen-party weekend! The hotel was excellent, food and drink too! Located right in the centre of Athboy with convenient parking around the back. The staff were very accommodating to us all, we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

We stayed at the wonderful Otterstown B&B, but had dinners and singing at the Darnley with new friends. Athboy is a town not to be missed! It is central to so many historic and significant sights, and full of friendly and informed people. We loved sharing Irish Rugby World Cup games at Sadliers with "100 of closest friends"! Singing with... More

My friend and I stayed here last week. This historic lodge is beautiful and well-maintained, and you could not ask for better people to take care of you. It is situated in the middle of the village, close to everything that you could ever want or need. The food is incredible, and even locals will tell you that it is... More

I live nearby "The Darnley" so frequent it often for breakfast dinner and tea and honestly hand on heart have NEVER had a bad meal in it. Service is great and attentive entertainment good and varied. I have never stayed there but told the rooms good value and comfortable...Try the Fajitas or the full Irish Breakfast..both very good indeed.

Been here twice , first time found the staff to be friendly and the food to be good. Second time We found the food to be awful and the staff to be rude with the exception of the duty manager. I live near this but unfortunately due to the bad experience of the second visit I won't be returning
