We had a lovely two nights in the City centre and decided to top it all off with a night at Carberry Towers. We were wowed from the minute we walked in. The Castle itself is stunning, it really...

I was a guest at a wedding held here, and it was simply beautiful. The staff at the venue were absolutely wonderful and very helpful and polite throughout the 2 day affair. We stayed at the venue, and the room was lovely. We didn't have a great view but the room was selected for us, so perhaps ask for a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Carberry Tower, I cannot rate it high enough. The pleasant lady on reception made checking-in a pleasure. The next stop was our room (Strathmore Suite), if ever a room had the wow factor this was it. A very large room well furnished with a four-poster bed, it was 'L' shaped leading to a superb... More

The Carberry Tower was the venue that we had always wished for. The venue is stunning, the grounds are amazing and on the night the staff where professional and we could not have asked or reasonably expected any more. However it wasn't all straight sailing, we had issues during the planning stages, as I am sure every wedding does. I... More

I stayed here for a wedding. I got a single room, which was absolutely tiny. The single bed was uncomfortable and the blinds were not effective at all. I woke up at 4:20am each morning due to the sunlight streaming in despite having the blinds all the way down. There was complimentary tea/coffee/hot chocolate which was nice. The wifi signal... More
