Really enjoyed this restaurant. Lovely food, relaxed atmosphere, cosy decor. The snug at the front is a lovely spot for dinner for two! Good value too considering how good the food was.

Second time staying here and simply have to say fantastic rooms at a fantastic price (€70 per double B&B). Very modern and cosy rooms, great breakfast. The restaurant was fantastic, great food without the fuss, again great value €60 for a three course meal and a bottle of wine. Would recommend the Snug when booking your table. Over all great...

Our trip was at end-May - still the quiet season and the calm before Irish long-weekend and school holidays. As far as expectations go - the hotel was exactly what we thought we'd get. Modern yet also cozy and inviting. The rooms comfortable, clean, quiet and spacious. The host Kevin was friendly and catered to all our needs. The restaurant... More

This is the second time I have written this review as the former was mysteriously 'deleted'! We stayed in this hotel in early July 2010 and were overall very disappointed. A number of issues accumulated to make this an unpleasant stay for both my wife and I. These included but were not limited to: Noisy echoes throughout the hotel, no... More

What can I say - great menu varied and quite extensive all meats fish and vegetarian included. Delightfull house wine and the... More

I stayed here on a saturday night with my partner. I am from Killarney and it was the weekend of the Rally of the Lakes so we were trying to avoid the noise and have a nice relaxing night away without travelling too far. The guesthouse had just re-opened after the winter season and staff were friendly, showing us up... More

I would be a frequent visitor to Castlegregory, as my family have a summer house down there, so headed down last weekend for a few nights. Its a quiet village with not many restaurants. We would normally go to the same restaurant when we visit, but happened to stumble upon O'Donnell's Old Ship Inn on Main Street. Lovely decor, ship... More
