Anticipation builds as you approach this magnificent building set in beautiful grounds. It really does look 'the part'... The welcome we experienced was somewhat indifferent from front desk - not what you would expect. The bar area could be wonderful; certainly lots of character in terms of decor, furnishings etc but the lighting is sub-optimal and casts a very subdued... More

Stayed for one night with my boyfriend as a treat before he left for Canada. Our package included a bottle of prosecco and chocolates on arrival. A 3 course meal in the Sli Dala restaurant. It was beautiful. The meal and the restaurant. Dessert wasn't great. I had the chocolate brownie which was rock hard and when I tried to... More

We took advantage of a special offer to visit Kinnity Castle for one night bed and breakfast with dinner. Because of the great value we were getting, we upgraded our room to a suite. We had heard a lot about the castle as a popular wedding venue. The castle/hotel is very striking at first glance. When you enter the building... More

My partner and I stayed one night at the Kinnitty Castle. Where should I begin???? The evening receptionist upon our check in was tart and not welcoming. She did not attempt to ask any of her male colleagues to help us with our 40 pound +++bags. Did I mention that our room was 2 long flights upstairs. What if we... More

Two friends and myself got a great deal on this hotel and we stayed on a Sunday night in April 2014. The building itself is very old and beautiful. Inside the hotel is a small bit rundown but keeps to the style of an old castle. Our bedroom was lovely - very very old and huge beds that were just... More

Kinnitty Castle, the celebrity haunt, is close to the picturesque village of Kinnitty, Co. Offaly set beautifully against a backdrop of the Slieve Bloom Mountains and is in Ireland's only designated Environment Park. The Castle has a long and turbulent history. Dating originally from 1209, Kinnitty was destroyed and rebuilt not once but twice and yet it retains character and oozes charm. Kinnitty even has its own ghost - a monk, no less! Kinnity is in a great location only 90 minutes from Dublin and is a great stop off point for journeys west or southwards. It is an exceptional place for lovers of good food and the great outdoors. ... more   less
