We had a wonderful family celebration at kinnitty with 20 members of the family staying overnight. The old world atmosphere in the hotel, care and attention of the staff was brilliant particularly the Manager, Cavan.

We had our wedding here last year and cannot recommend it enough. Cavan was so helpful to us from the moment we booked it until the wedding day itself. All of our guests spoke so highly of the food, it was simply beautiful. We will definitely be recommending this hotel to all of friends and family.

Just spent two nights at the wonderful Kinnitty Castle and we couldn't fault it. My wife and I were guests at a wedding and the food was just delicious.

the castle is an impressive building, that would benefit from ivy cladding. a nice red-carpet entrance flanked by a couple of suits of armour creates a good first impression. On check-in our rooms were late but we were given complimentary prosecco in apology. the staff were mixed. in the restaurant, where I thought the dinner was of a good quality... More

Disappointing. The building itself and the courtyard are quite beautiful. The food was very good and staff nice, breakfast was really tasty. But there is a really bad sense of neglect to all of the public areas and our room was filthy - hair (someone else's) on the dresser, clumps of dust everywhere, a crunchy-feeling if you walk barefoot in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
