We had a family holiday, renting a lodge on the grounds of Castlemartyr. From the spacious bright homes, to the tranquil and safe-for-kids setting, the quiet luxury of the Hotel, the superb hotel and Natural Retreats staff, to the magnificence of the hotel grounds - you just cannot beat this destination for a family holiday.

Fantastic property with very helpful staff set in beautiful soundings. We had a wonderful time. We stayed in the golf lodges and enjoyed the walk to and from the hotel. The pool is great and the lounge in the hotel is child friendly.

Lovely location and hotel facilities available are great. Welcome service from concierge was fantastic with a small hamper of goods and a bottle of wine. Only let down is the mews itself was a bit tired inside and needs a bit of attention - very high spec but just a bit tired and a few things need fixing/maintaining!

Maybe my expectations were just too high but I ended up disappointed by these houses. They are very nice, but just not worth the price. Very homely, lots of marks of previous tenants, marks on the walls and the curtains, my shower didn't work and some of the cooking utensils were unusable (frying pan saw better days a long time...

We travelled with our 3 year old daughter, 3 month old son and our 14 year old niece. We could have absolutely no complaints about the services, the facilities or the surroundings. A fantastic place to stay with kids. The little touches of having various animals (rabbits, kittens, ducks, chickens, horses etc.) scattered around the grounds was a real hit... More

Service in pro shop & golf bar excellent. Food in main hotel & service Excellent. Pool excellent but time for children too restrictive. Golf course excellent & great... More

I stayed in the Mews, I found them to be very poorly finished regarding utilities. We had issues with not having hot water and was told that there was issues arising from when they were built. There is not enough capacity to handle all the Mews if they are occupied so they limit the use in them when they are... More

Second time staying here. The lodges are great. Lots of living room but the bedrooms are a little small. It is reasonable value. There are a lot of places to go around Castlemartyr. The village itself is a bit lifeless. One issue is the decking area at the back of lodges and garden furniture is starting to look a bit... More

These are nice, well appointed houses that back onto a great communal area, which was the reason we chose here with six other families: so we could all be beside each other. Unfortunately, we were foiled be a wasp infestation which necessitated us being moved to the other side of the compound. This was truly disappointing, but clearly beyond the... More
