I am just revisiting the diary of our trip to Ireland that we took last summer. The experience at this hotel was absolutely wonderful . We stayed in the Samuel Becket room which was beautifully appointed. Our meals were amazing and the staff very warm and helpful. The only problem? We only spent one night there!

Delightful hotel, set in a peaceful and tranquil grounds overlooking Loch Swilley. We had dinner which was delicious and breakfast which was cooked to order, which I find preferable to the buffet style in most hotels these days. The food was beautifully presented and of a very high standard. The bedroom and en suite bathroom were huge. I would thoroughly... More

The hotel is tucked away from the main road in Letterkenny so it can be a bit difficult to catch the turn off if you're not sure where you're going but it's worth it. Firstly the manor and the grounds are absolutely stunning. We arrived to tea/coffee and cookies and relaxed in one of the drawing rooms. The dinning room... More

We call it Castle Grudge. First of all...make sure that you know the direction. We haven't found any direction signs on the streets and it is 7km from Letterkenny and Ramelton away. So, if you are looking for a central stay to one of those cities...a clear nope! The place it is located could be very beautiful, with a lake... More
