Despite growing up in Donegal town, I visited Castle Murray restaurant for the first time last weekend. I went with my family. Many of them had been several times before and, based on their feedback, I was looking forward to a special meal. First of all, the views of the bay are spectacular and we were blessed with good weather.... More

We have been here a good few times to eat both as a couple and a family and have always enjoyed it. We would definitely recommend a visit for food but particularly on Sundays as you get top notch food and service for much more reasonable price! Don't forget to go see the lighthouse if you haven't been before!

Just returned from an overnight stay at Castle Murray to celebrate my retirement with my husband. From the moment we arrived & were greeted by the very pleasant young male receptionist to the lovely porter who took our case up to our room we were treated like royalty. Our 4 course dinner was superb & expertly served by a very... More

Every time we checkout we want to rebook for our next visit! Great reputation for seafood but steak and duck are also suburb. Sorry to spoil the surprise...wonderful breakfast, including homemade granola - spectacular dining room.

Although the food, view, and atmosphere were incredible, I was disappointed at their unwillingness to accommodate us with our small child. After a very long day of travel we wanted to relax in the room and let our child relax as well. They would not allow the restaurant food to be taken to our room, and also made a fuss... More

Look no further that this little boutique hotel for the ultimate in Cuisine and Hospitality.We stayed here one night on our way for short break to Lough Eske Castle. We got the last room following a cancellation. The room was quite small and the only blemish on an otherwise wonderful experience and deprived the hotel of our full 5 rating.... More

First things first - this is not a formulaic modern hotel with a spa, huge rooms with an LCD TV covering one wall with 300 television & radio channels. This is a wonderful restaurant that happens to be located in a beautiful location with really nice rooms to relax after your meal. The staff are very friendly and seem to... More
