Stayed here for 2 nights with extended family members, and it was the perfect place to relax, catch up, and get to better know some of the newer family members. All adults with varying interests, there was plenty to do during the days with a hike or run in nearby Ballyseedy Woods, walking the grounds of the castle, visiting some of the nearby towns, or quiet reading at the castle. The hospitality of the staff was superb. For those wanting more action like that found in Dublin's Temple Bar area, this isn't going to be your place. For those wanting excellent accommodations, great food, warm bar atmosphere with great service, this is where you want to visit. Rooms were very comfortable and quiet. We plan to return on our next trip.
