Lovely old historic building with beautiful surrounding grounds. Room and bed was very comfortable. I also loved their downstairs drawing rooms which were cosy and beauitful (especially when accompanied by one of their excellent cocktails). Staff were attentive and pleasant. Didn't have dinner there but wish I had. Breakfast was also first class. Hope to stay longer next time.

The staff were superb, the house full of charm, and the cusine exceptional. Combined with a quite beautiful location. What more could one want. This is a superb destination to relax and get away from it all.

five of us stayed over the bank holiday weekend as a family party was taking place on the Saturday night. Castlegrove is set in a beautiful and peaceful location and the decor and antique furnishings are lovely, but it is really the wonderful owners and staff that make this an outstanding warm Irish experience! Nothing is a bother, and we... More

First of all directions: on right leaving Letterkenny towards Ramelton watch out for subtle Castlegrove blue sign taking you off main road. Also signpost in brown Killydonnell Friary. Get ready for another right turn and mind the ramps! Superb ambiance, lovely old house, surrounded by greenery on the historic lough side (of Lough Swilly). Food is very good, staff are... More

Spent Saturday the 11 July here for a wedding. No matter what we asked nothing was any trouble. Staff are amazing. A massive thanks to the owner and her daughter Irene. Made me and my family feel right at home. Loved the red wine!!!. Looking forward to my next visit soon. Many thanks, Shane.
