Stayed here for a wedding booked a family room with 3 children and was delighted with a fantastic spacious beautiful room. The beds were really comfy. The food was a culinary delight with flavours to die for. The service at breakfast was impeccable with a brilliant menu to choose from. All in all a delight.

We stayed in a castle room and had a wonderful stay. The view out the back is amazing. Just greenery and mountains out the back. Really helped to feel like you were away from it all. The staff was just fantastic. Personable and really seemed to enjoy hosting guests. The room was really nice. Good size and wonderfully appointed. Though... More

I loved this place. It was well maintained and the grounds and garden were stunning. They also have two resident castle dogs that roam around and are so friendly, my kids loved them. I loved the history of the place and how well they preserved it. I would definitely go back.

This is a must visit when traveling to Ireland. The accommodations are wonderful and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. Esther helped us with places to go, maps brochures and was an overall treasure. The food was wonderful as well.

Beautiful location and an amazing setting, this is down the road from where i grew up and every time I am back in home from Australia, I love to visit the small cosy bar, sit back and relax with a beer. A site that is easily missed but you will miss out if you don't stop by.

Stayed here for one night with my girlfriend. Very expensive at €215 for one night b&b but wonderful experience. We stayed in the Yeats Room which was nothing short of spectacular as was our first impression of the exterior and interior of this fabulously kept hotel. The furnishings and ambiance were perfect. The receptionist lady at check in (apologies for... More

We were warmly welcomed and though our room was downstairs, it was a warm pleasant stay. This point in our trip it was nice to be away form the hustle and bustle of the city and we were able to enjoy a quiets evening and a fine breakfast before heading off to our next destination. We had a little trouble... More

The wedding meal was fantastic. The wedding morning... More

I was so excited to spend our 15th anniversary in an Irish castle. It was quite the experience. We stayed in the Allingham junior suite, and it was beautiful. However, it's an old castle, complete with old castle smells that aggravated our allergies. Both breakfast and dinner were very good. I'm glad we had the castle experience, but I probably... More

We celebrated our daughter's 12th birthday with a night here and dinner in the restaurant. Our rooms in the lodge were the best on our Irish holiday. Beautiful and large. The dinner was very good. Everyone seemed very happy to be there and ready to meet our needs.
