I am born and bred on these Irish shores but have never stayed in a real Irish castle. That is until my husband treated me to a stay for my birthday in Cabra Castle in February 2015. I so enjoyed the experience. The roads around the castle are hairy, but once through the gates the approach to the castle ahead... More

We were extremely disappointed. We were placed in one of the rooms down the road. I believe they referred to it as a cottage. It reminded me of a dorm room. We did not even feel like we were staying at the castle. There was one incredibly sweet woman at the front desk who helped us with directions.

We were a bit lost and hesitant when the GPS took the WAY back roads into this lovely hotel our first night in Ireland. Instead of coming in through the main gate and beautifully manicured golf course we ended up arriving at the single lane "delivery only entrance" which was a very narrow one way lane. Once we arrived at... More

Stayed in a beautiful courtyard room. Parking facilities outside our room. Had breakfast in the room the next morning. Ate a light snack in the bar. Friendly staff, lovely peaceful atmosphere. Would visit again

We have stayed here once before and the second time was just as good. The food is fantastic although not great choice for children in the evening. Highly recommend either sirloin or fillet steaks. The rooms are excellent and we stayed in a courtyard room as opposed to a castle one last time but it was just as nice if... More

It’s an amazing place! We were on a mother/daughter vacation. Let me start with the amazing staff. My mom had an incident where she had to be taken by ambulance to a hospital the day we arrived. The staff at Cabra Castle went above and beyond helping me and my mom. They are the kindest, sweetest, most helpful people you... More

I stayed one night (Easter Saturday) with my mother. The drive is impressive and the 2 wolfhounds who greeted us at the entrance to the castle added to the ambience! (They must be the most phorographed dogs in Ireland!) We decided to eat in the restaurant: a bit pricy perhaos -but we were so glad we did! Huge portions of... More

We loved our stay in March at Cabra Castle. The courtyard rooms are wonderful and comfortable but with easy access into the Castle. In the nearby town of Carrickmacross, The Fiddler's Elbow was an excellent choice for a restaurant. We also drove a bit down from the Castle to walk through Dun a Ri Park where we eventually discovered the... More

Great castle with lots of character. The resident wolfhounds make it feel so homey. Loved our stay there. Room was great for 3 people. 2 separate areas. 1 with a queen and one with Twins. Service was great. They truly try to please.

I have stayed in the Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton in the past but the rooms at the Cabra Castle were by far better. We had three rooms in the courtyard and they were amazing. The courtyard is attached to the castle. The castle itself is very cool and does have the Downton Abbey feel. The pub and restaurant on... More
