We stayed here with our family in April 2015. The car park at the front is a little small but as soon as you realise there is parking around the back too there is more than enough! We were welcomed on arrival with a smile and shown to our room which was stunning. It was spotlessly clean (and we are... More

I sometimes read reviews on trip advisor and wonder on which planet some people live ? This hotel is fantastic ... Quaint and full of period features yet it still feels modern, the hotel is immaculately presented and bedrooms large and relaxing. The hospitality shown to us being Sean Rosie and thier family was second to none. We arrived late... More

Just want to say a huge 'Thank you' to Rosezita and Sean for our wonderful stay in the Ashbrook Arms. We were attending a wedding in Castle Durrow which was booked out for accomodation. My initial reaction was to be disappointed because we could not stay in the venue of the wedding but it was our lucky day because we... More

We have eaten here a few times and defiantly would recommend it to anyone passing through the area. The service is very friendly and the quality of the restaurant is excellent. Could not fault the food at all. Total 5 star experience and very good value

Stayed here while attending a wedding a Durrow Castle. The lady who ruins the guesthouse is so welcoming. As the day was extremely cold she turned the heating up in the room so when we came back later that night we had a nice toasty room. The room itself was lovely and the bed was very comfy. Breakfast was very... More

I booked this as I was going to a wedding in Castle Durrow for New Years and my stay at Ashbrook Arms was faultless. The owner was so helpful and friendly and brought us fresh coffee to our room when we arrived. The room was huge, warm and perfect. I would definitely recommend staying here, we just loved it.
