Back for our fourth visit, we wouldn't stay anywhere else while in NI. Wonderful welcome, beautiful, clean room, feels like home. Staff are brilliant and very attentive, nothing is to much trouble. And the food is delicious using good local produce, Dundrum Bay muscles and home made seafood chowder are my favourites and lets not forget the Ulster fry. Can't... More

I've been coming here for over 30 years. Food always good. Service and atmosphere good too. Free internet and they don't mind my son and I having a pint and using our laptops. Seamus still behind the bar and always polite and friendly. Young staff excellent too and watch and anticipate your needs

Popped in a few times during our annual trip back to Castlewellan. Shamus was still working the bar and the Guinness is as good as ever! The place was just being painted outside and is looking very smart.

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
