We enjoyed a wonderful 2 nights here recuperating from a family wedding! Everything is superb, restaurant, staff, ambience, setting and rooms. The setting is particularly lovely and a pony and trap tour of the grounds with Sean as your guide and Paddy the pony as your power is well worth the experience, Sean can tell a good tale!

We loved it here. Wish we had stayed longer because you can easily spend a day just "being" at the hotel and enjoying the huge selection of activities offered. The grounds are huge and amazing--allow time to wander them. The public areas of the hotel are also beautiful and relaxing in the bar or having tea time there should not... More

We had a lovely stay for two nights as part of our honeymoon trip from the states! After a lovely greeting when we drove up to the hotel we were upgraded to a beautiful suite.

We stayed here for a night last week and it was absolutely amazing! When we arrived we were told that we were upgraded from the State Room I booked to one of their nicest suites for free! Our car was valet parked, and we were helped with our bags and shown to our room. It was stunning. We had a... More

We have stayed here four or five times over the years, but this was our first stay as a married couple. We bought a voucher for the stay on pigsback and it was a great deal. €200 for bed and breakfast, free bottle of wine in the dining room, chocolates on arrival and €20 off a Spa treatment.

We spent 4 wonderful nights in this magical castle, the service was five star, the food was excellent and whole experience was far better than we ever expected. We will certainly return. The sense of history surrounds you, yet there are still modern touches such as the serene Spa with it's up to date feel and services.

My only complaint is that we stayed one night and it's just not enough. From the moment we pulled up to the time of departure this was a terrific experience. If you're on a budget holiday, it's not for you. However, if you can afford it at all, the cost justifies the level and quality of service provided. The room... More
