My wife, child and I stayed for the weekend. Very relaxing and we were offered mulled wine on arrival which was a nice touch. There was a lovely Christmas atmosphere and we really enjoyed our meal on the Saturday evening. Although, I would recommend that they serve roast potatoes or similar with the mains, especially at Christmas time. A mixture... More

Driven for 2 hours to get to the hotel which was out in the country, only to be told that there was no catering in the restaurant on a Sunday night. This was completely unsatisfactory. So we cancelled our reservation and booked into another hotel in Letterkenny.

We stayed in May 2014 and were so impressed returned last week for 5 days. The team at the hotel work hard to make everything rather special and all have a great sense of humour., Castle Grove occupies a brilliant setting and is a lovely former stately home run to perfection by the resident owners Mary and Eileen. Nothing is... More

My husband and I stayed at Castle Grove for 4 nights in September and can honestly say it was the best place we have ever stayed. It really sums up a great country house.
