Great staff, friendly reception, very thoughtful and welcoming for my 9yr old and elderly parents. Thoroughly enjoyed the dining room, food surpassed my expectations - and service was good. Beautiful dining room, lovely grounds. Only small flaw was no one offered to help us out with luggage - though I'm sure if we asked they would have - but overall... More

On each occassion we have found the staff to be very friendly and they do their utmost to made you feel at home. They have always made a huge effort with our children... More

This is a really nice hotel, which is very tastefully decorated maintaining the old charm of the house. I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and have yet to be disappointed. The staff are very pleasant and add to the experience. The hotel also offers good value for money.

We revisited this gem last night, a party of six. There was a set menu, two or three courses, with a €5 supplement for the fillet steak - they got 5 fillets ordered, and they were every bit as good as last time. All cooked to perfection, crusty on the outside and pink in the middle. First courses were rabbit... More

Dear Ray. I would like to thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on your recent visit to our restaurant and for your kind compliments on its setting and decor. I am really surprised that you feel that our offering is both limited and overpriced because our menus change weekly and offer a choice of seven starters,... More

Enjoyed Afternoon Tea in Castle Durrow last Saturday afternoon. 4 of us met up for a Girls Day Out and from start to finish, the service, wonderful staff, quality food - everything was perfect. Personally, I'd previously had a bad experience of Afternoon Tea in another castle style venue, cold tea, asking for pots of hot water and extra milk... More

We ate here as a family of 4 in the bar. This place is such a treat. From the welcome on walking in to the pleasantries on the way out. The food was great and staff went out of their way to ensure the 6 year old got potatoes and gravy even though they are not on the bar menu.... More

With all the positive reviews Castle Durrow hardly needs further confirmation of what a wonderful place it is but I do enjoy giving good reviews! My husband and I went for the one night B&B + evening meal package and got massages in the Powder Box as well to really spoil ourselves. The only thing we would have done differently... More
