Castle Murray prides itself on its dedication and passion to achieving a consistently high quality dining experience. Our Head Chef Remy Dupuy, who has worked in Castle Murray since 1995, is well renowned for using the best of locally sourced produce to create dishes that once enjoyed will have you planning your next trip back to Castle Murray. Our evening dinner menu showcases the passion and talent of Remy and his team while giving the customers a gastronomic experience that is often mimicked but seldom equalled. Great care and attention to detail is given to the design, creation and delivery of each dish on the menu, which reflects the dedication and desire for greatness which motivates Remy and his team. If you haven't already heard about our House Special dish 'Prawn and Monkfish', then it is a must have. A dish so good it should have its own Appreciation Society! The dining room is refined yet comfortable, with a warm and welcoming ambiance that surrounds you once you enter the room. The striking views of St. John's Point and its natural beauty can be enjoyed throughout the dining room. Our restaurant has the added bonus of having a beautiful open fire, which in the winter, when the fire is roaring creates a warm and homely atmosphere that is much sought after on dark winter nights. Through the direction of the General Manager Marguerite Howley and our Maitre d'Hotel Fabrice Costes, a commitment to a professional and personable service is guaranteed to you. Along with our evening dinner menu, we offer a mouth watering 5 course Sunday Lunch that is extremely popular with people far and near. And if that hasn't tempted you 'foodies' out there then we are pleased to tell you that during the summer months we have a gourmet bar lunch menu available and an absurdly delicious and decadent Afternoon Tea service that is sure to tantalise those taste buds.

“A UNIQUE DINING EXPERIENCE ON THE WILD ATLANTIC WAY” A visit to dine in Castle Murray House Hotel is always a unique fine dining experience and a recent visit for Sunday lunch certainly did not disappoint.

Went for B&b and dinner option. The dinner was 5 courses one of which being tea or coffee. Average age of other dinners, guests was about 70, this was a bit off putting but wouldn't let it put you off visiting. We stayed in the Bally saggart room which was clean and very comfortable. Really good shower. Large balcony but... More

Dined here 'a deux' on Saturday on a very wild and windy night. Visiting on a dark, stormy winter's evening denies the view for which this hotel/restaurant is famed, but the bar is cosy and a fire in the grate ensured that the wild weather was kept at bay. We both ordered the signature starter of Langoustine & Monkfish in... More

15 years of spectacular dinners, how on earth do they manage to produce such sustained excellence? Wonderful for any special occasion, attentive staff and fabulous food. A unique mix of gourmet dining and informal craic.

Please bear in mind that the 3 out of 5 is relative to the price paid. I want to do the good stuff first. The setting and the view are spectacular, absolutely fantastic.

We had tried to book a table for Sunday lunch, but were unable to make contact via telephone or email for a variety of reasons (possibly something for the management to look into). That said, on arrival we were made to feel very welcome by front of house and the waiting staff. The food is good. That goes without saying.... More
