We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, the service was outstanding, from the very warm welcome on arrival right through to our departure. On arrival we were greeted by Sally in reception and Ken the owner, who even took our luggage to our rooms, a nice touch. We were struck by the truly open and genuine warmth of them both.
Our four poster room was palatial with amazing attention to detail and we had the most comfortable stay there, it was well appointed , luxurious and typical of the Irish Castle.
We dined on both nights, the food was second to none!, deliciously tasty, fresh and unique, our appetizers were excellent and well prepared, the steaks were meltingly tender and again cooked to order and perfection, what can we say about the deserts only that there truly scrumptous. We found all the staff very attentive and extremely friendly and we had a good repore with our waiter Norman and he contributed immensely to our dining experience. The passion for food and wine certainly through as they presented a fascinating menu, with the best of local produce.
A special word of thanks also to Gillian, Linda and Ester in reception for also making us so welcome, there were always on hand and very professional , friendly and courteous. Truly all this praise and more is deserved.
We are already looking forward to a return visit as we found something special and we know it will not fail to impress us once again.
Thank you Ken and all the wonderful staff.
