This was our first trip to Ireland and how exciting to stay in a castle the first night. Although modernized, it was still fun to stay there. Our kids loved it. The breakfasts were very enjoyable and there was something for all of us. It was very noisy when others were in the halls. It will soon be ready for some refreshing, but as one that owns a hotel, I would still recommend it. The staff was absolutely amazing. Chris the concierge went above and beyond for us and we cannot thank him enough. It gets busy at night in the pub, so if you want casual food and a place to sit, get there early.
