Stayed in the Kings Inn for the 2014 Newcastle airshow. The staff could not have been friendlier and gave us some great local tips which made the weekend. I would definitely stay here again. Very nice family run hotel, with good clean rooms. Ronan

I recently stayed here as a delegate at my union conference. After initially feeling short changed because the rest of my branch were in the Slieve Donard i was delighted that the shared room which was not massive was spotlessly clean and the bed was good and firm. The ensuite was very good,the shower powerful and very hot water. Although... More

My husband and I stayed one night at Kings during our honeymoon in Ireland. The innkeeper John was incredibly friendly and our room was comfortable, roomy enough, and had a great ensuite bathroom. We slept soundly in the bed. We choose to spend a bit more for breakfast (you could pay less for the room only) and while the breakfast... More

We got married in Castlewellan in 2008 and a lot of our guests from the UK stayed at the Kings, they all loved it. I've eaten in there often and the food is always good. My favourite though is the Guinness. They usually bring it to your table as they won't give you your pint until its had chance to... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night midweek. We were given the executive room which is overlooking the square in Castlewellan and is very modern and comfortable. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and the service was brilliant. I would definitely recommend The King's Inn and I look forward to staying here again.

This was my first time staying here. I have eaten in the pub before. The room had a great mattress which was very comfortable. They take good care of the guests. The pub is nice and you can have some craic with the locals. The breakfast was awesome!!!
