Stayed at Dungiven Castle just for one night and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a homely place to stay. The grounds and walks at the back of the hotel are beautiful and our dog really enjoyed them too. :-) The staff were so friendly and quite simply couldn't do enough for us. It was lovely to... More

Stayed in Dungiven Castle at the weekend for a hen party .Everything was super ,the staff go above and beyond the call of duty, nothing was too much trouble.

Have just returned from an overnight stay at Dungiven Castle,(Thursday 5th June) and have to say we had a wonderful time. While the Castle itself is small in size, the welcome from the staff is as big as you'd expect at Ashford Castle or the Shelbourne. The room we had was almost twice the size as one we stayed in...

I only marked the location as a four as beyond the castle the town is pretty empty... but the castle itself was small and quaint and very personal. The grounds are absolutely stunning as are the views from the bedroom. It was so relaxing sitting on the lawn with a cool drink on a warn day listening to the many... More

Dungiven Castle sits on the Main Street. First glance is of the back of the Castle with it’s car park and a great big marquee. The staff are ever so friendly and helpful, the food was nice and well presented, small bar but again pleasant atmosphere. It’s actually quite small when you are inside the castle hence the big marquee,... More

We stayed one night at this small but beautiful hotel in Jan 2014. It was a particularly cold weekend and unfortunately this is my lasting memory of the hotel, it was freezing! We could not have stayed 2 nights, particularly as there wasn't any hot water for a shower the next morning. The heating kept going off, although the staff... More
