We travelled here for a family Christmas with members of both sides of the family. We prepared a number of meals in the well equipped kitchen (though cooking with a Rayburn took the chefs a little getting used to😊). It was a simply wonderful secluded retreat. The area surrounding the castle is very pretty and the restoration job was sensitively... More

We stayed here at the weekend 01/11/13 as a group of 10 adults. The place was absolutely beautiful, the facilities were Excellent & was great value for money. Myself & my husband stayed in the double bedroom in the Tower & the bed linen was 5* quality and view from the window was priceless. The Rayburn was perfect for one... More

We (a group of 8 adults, 3 toddlers, and 3 babies) stayed for two nights in Clonmantagh Castle and really enjoyed it. Getting keys was arranged simply and informally, it was warm and bright. The kids had brought plenty of toys and had loads of room to run around. We got to sit about in the big living room after... More

Stayed here with 10 friends and our 5 young children. Had a blast. Spookey old house (supposed to be haunted!) but great to relax. Range in the kitchen, and wood burning stove and fire in the living rooms. No phone signal either so just tune out the world.

Clomantagh Castle is a charismatic and charming place to stay. The accommodation consists of an enormous kitchen in the bottom of the tower, and a large sitting room, with a smaller cosy room off the sitting room. There are numerous bedrooms and bathrooms. Our hostess gave us a very warm and friendly welcome. Her hospitality and playfulness with the children... More

The rooms are all different but have alot of character. The house is warm and clean and it is a good... More

I just want to echo what most of the other reviewers have written. The castle has been restored to a condition that is so cozy and comfortable one could easily picture oneself living there. I grew up in a house not dissimilar to this hwoever my own family home was often cold and lacked the modern comforts.If I could say... More

We are just back from our holiday in Clomantagh Castle and all ten of us loved it (7 adults and 3 children aged 7months 2 years and 6 years)! No one had a bad word to say and I think its safe to say we were sad to leave. The house was clean warm and spacious. We had everything we... More

Clomantagh Castle is a unique property, plenty of space and really nicely furnished and comfortable. We visited in the summer 2011 and got a really good deal from The Landmark Trust. The place was spotless when we got there and we just felt right at home there. Bedrooms are really comfortable and all mod cons and lovely range in the... More
