If views, friendly staff, astounding location, feeling a part of the area you are visiting, views, the ability to have your animal with you and efficient administration of the details of checking in and checking out matter to you, and did I mention views, you would probably consider giving Castle Murray House a "5/Excellent" rating. If you tend to focus... More

We stayed here as a group of 10 for a birthday celebration. The location is perfect. You can't beat the view from the restaurant and lounge area over bruckless bay even in changeable weather. Perfect base for south Donegal, 20 to 30 mins drive to slieve league, ardara, Donegal town. The bedrooms are comfortable and again have super views though... More

11 miles outside of Donegal town, Castle Murray House is a terrific spot to stay as well as dine. Castle it is not.... but a two story building overlooking the sea and farmland that is as quiet a setting as one could ask for. The only sound we heard was of nearby cows in their pasture and a delivery lorry... More

Really nice place with the personal touch. Enjoyed the views, nice area for walking and great base to tour west Donegal. Food was really good especially the monkfish and prawn dish, service was also very good, would absolutely return again

Returned to Castle Murray after some years. Rooms have been renovated since our last visit, the food remains the highlight of the trip absolutely fantastic. Rooms however whilst updated remain distinctly average. They are tastefully decorated however both the rooms and the en-suite bathrooms are candidly too small. The beds are just too small, double beds are only just, resulting... More

Castle Murray is definitely one of my favourite hotels for a romantic break and this visit certainly didn't disappoint, no wonder it's ranked one of the fifty most romantic places in the world - a well deserved title. We settled in to the comfy sofas overlooking McSynnes Bay and ordered a couple of drinks whilst watching the glorious sunshine over... More

I called to this hotel on spec and because of the fantastic view out to sea. I needed a twin room and as there was none available, I needed to find somewhere else. The lady at reception went to great lengths to find me an alternative with a reassuring smile and calm search. A lovely place with lovely people. Hopefully... More

Ok, so the weather might not always be the best, but you are on the west coast of Ireland. The views across McSwynnes Bay help if it is a bit dreach. Whatever the weather, sitting supping a pint of the black stuff while snuggled down on one of the nice new comfy sofas taking in said view is pure bliss.... More

Went here for lunch a few days ago. The seafood platter was fantastic - the prawns were so succulent, there was a good portion of lobster, the smoked salmon was unique: never had peat smoked salmon before. The service was excellent, and the price of the meal was good value.

The good - location and breakfast. Nice view from the room, and the drive out is pretty. Breakfast was tasty and good fish option. The ok - service. Meet and greet was good, if a bit over the top. Breakfast service was a bit disorganised and inattentive, but they got there in the end. The dinner options were limited, only... More
