My wife and I stayed there again this weekend. As always, the care and attention to detail made our visit another cherished memory. Being Easter, we were treated to complimentary sweets and little Easter eggs, just another homely touch which is why we love staying there so much. From the moment we arrived at reception, the owners, management, bar staff, waiters, waitresses, wanted to ensure we had another visit to remember, The whole staff are so social and happy, and this creates a marvellous atmosphere throughout the hotel. Food as usual is of the highest calibre and A.J. and his team ensure every need is catered for. We love everything about the Castle Hotel, especially the brown bread. Staff also ensured we had some to take home by leaving a loaf in our bedroom for us. Where else would you get such efficiency and consideration. We can`t wait for our next trip down South to the Castle. Thanks again to Gerard and Don. You have a staff to be proud of, who are a credit to the hotel, the tourist industry and Macroom Thanks again

Room Tip: Fantastic food, great atmosphere and a staff to remember

I did not stay here but myself and my family ate here last night. From the moment we walked in we were looked after by the great staff . The owner came to our table immediately and interacted with my young kids and made us feel so welcome. He asked my 3 yr old little girls name and remembered it throughout the evening . The waitress was friendly and efficient and the food was fantastic , especially the banana ice cream. The gents toilets were the cleanest I've ever seen. Next time I am in cork this is the place I will be staying in.

I stayed at the hotel as a member of the Morriston Orpheus Choir from Wales. Whilst the Choir only stopped for the one night, my partner & I remained for a further two great nights. I can only echo the earlier reviews of both LaurieB4t and SJSmith0904. Everything that you look for during a stay in a top hotel were to be found. The only word I, and the 70+ members of the Choir, can attribute to the accommodation, food & staff is excellent. Highly recommended, and we look forward to returning to the hotel in the future.

My husband and I returned to The Castle for a few days with our daughter to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We got married in Gougane Barra last April and had our reception at The Castle. It was wonderful to return and see so many friendly faces and receive so many congratulations and best wishes.
Once again the staff were faultless. Their attention to detail (such as allocating the same room that we had for our wedding day) made us feel so welcome and valued.
The food was delicious and service was attentive and accommodating. Everything was to our liking. It was so easy to remember why we picked The Castle hotel for our venue in the first place. A home away from home... We will be back again next year.

This hotel should not be judged from its street view. Stayed here on 31st March for work purposes, unfortunately the only fault was that I was only staying for one night. The staff in this hotel are lovely so friendly and welcoming really felt like knew them for years. The room was fab - decorated really well, comfortable beds, absolutely spotless and quiet even though there was a wedding in the hotel the same night! We ate in the bar and could not fault the food... Good selection and great taste! The breakfast was great order taken from the table and nothing was too much trouble! Have stayed in a lot of hotels around the country especially with work and the castle is definitely up at the top of them! I will be returning and hopefully it will be for leisure next time so I can really enjoy all the castle has to offer!!
