Stopped here this evening, lovely setting by a log fire. Superb service, friendly and attentive. Couldn't fault the food. Great mushrooms, divine duck spring rolls, Beautiful Brie and fantastic fajitas. Great portion size and well presented.

Been here a few times since christmas when I come home to athboy and it is great to see it back open and see some old faces that are years there.Have to say the food here has always been great. There is such a great variety of food on the evening menu and I was very impressed with the presentation.... More

We stayed here because it is the closest place to our friends' wedding venue. Overall, we enjoyed our time here. The hotel itself is not extremely amazing, but the staffs are really nice and helpful. The breakfast is great. The only negative thing I can think of is the internet. It is really hard to connect to the internet.

We popped into the Darnley en route to Causey farm at the weekend and I have to say it was lovely to be with my two young children and feel so welcome. It has a great family friendly atmosphere and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The Sunday lunch was tasty, hot and my husband was pleased with the... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times. It is a lovely hotel in downtown Athboy, very quaint and comfortable. I have sat by the fire many times next to the bar/restaurant working on my laptop and sipping a cup of coffee in the morning or a pint of Guinness in the evening. The staff is super friendly, the food... More

I had the pleasure of revisiting this fantastic hotel with a group of 20 other people, we do these type of overnights on a regular basis and this gem of a hotel would be hard to beat on all counts. The staff were so helpful, courteous, and attentive it felt like we were in a 5* hotel. The food was... More

My husband and I and extended family have just stayed at the Darnley Lodge where we all agreed that the staff were just absolutely amazing and couldn't have done more for us - completely faultless. They went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed but more importantly, did things that we hadn't asked or expected such... More
