Dropped in on a wet day and staff friendly and relaxed. Lovely features to hotel and menu varied and well priced. Kids menu also good. We were served in a timely fashion and food tasted home made especially veg soup and the deserts. Ice cream home made we think. Great atmosphere in the castle surrounds.

We booked the Cormac room for two nights - the room was quite large so maneuvering our stuff was really easy. I liked the decor of the place - very authentic. Our room overlooked the front grounds which are very pretty. I liked to see the horses and the hotel as information on a walking trail through the nearby woods.... More

Visited for food when staying in nearby accommodation. The restaurant on arrival looked like a school classroom with tables lined up in rows so opted for the the library bar which was busy and more inviting. Food I must say was only average. Our main meal was served with chips which were brown soggy and really pathetic. They must have... More

We stayed at kinnitty castle this Sunday and Monday and have to say we had a brilliant time and loved the place. The food was excellent as we're the staff and our room, the slieve bloom.

I wanted to stay here in order to ride with Birr Equestrian center the following day and was drawn to how beautiful the castle was. The exterior is incredibly beautiful. It's very authentic. That said, the interior is a bit creepy and feels a bit run down. I stayed in the Abbey rooms and the room and bathroom smelled quite... More

Now if you are the hypersensitive traveller, this is not for you. The little history of the Castle you are given rather charmingly describes the hotel as being in the care of the bank, or some such words, and that may be a clue to why there is a rather tired air from the decor point of view. But pretend... More

Had a deal for 1 night at Kinnity with evening meal and breakfast. Very friendly welcome on arrival, but despite being offered a quick tour, were led straight to the room. Room was very drab, and in need of a bit of a lift. It being a castle, I suppose it may be expected to be a bit old fashioned,... More

I was taken here to listen to some traditional irish music. Thankfully there was a very pleasant wedding party to chat with as the singer sounded like he needed to see a vet with his painful howling. The bar was pleasant but as for finding your way around, toilets etc...........this place needs some serious attention to detail. Dirty and grubby... More

I have just spent a couple of nights here with extended family which included a large group of children. If your idea of a hotel is mod cons and plushness then kinnitty may not be for you.
