I didn't enjoy this hotel, right from the beginning trying to make the reservation I had problems and the stay was not much better. I rang to make a reservation and was told in a very curt tone that they do not take reservations outside the hours of 9-5 and snapped when I asked was she sure. Anyway I booked online instead after that as we were attending a wedding and wanted to stay due to distance from our home. I arrived on the date in question and according to my reservation I booked a room in Cabra Castle. At no point in the reservation did it mention the lodges but when I said to reception I'd booked a room in the castle I was told no I hadn't and told to take our bags back to the car and drive around to the lodges. I was not impressed but did so all the same. The room was old, dark, in need of repair and not in keeping with the period in which the property hails! The bathroom had peeling wallpaper, the carpet was worn and shabby some of the furniture was broken, the bed was bowed in the middle due to "use", the lace hanging from the four posters was dirty and the rom was cold. The door also rattled. I again rang reception and explained my disappointment and they offered a room over the kitchen which I declined as she said they don't use it if they can help it so if that was a room they weren't willing to house guests in I can only imagine how much worse it was than the room we were in. We had to walk a short walk outside to get back into the castle but it was raining on the day and not an umbrella in site. The room for the wedding reception was too warm and although the food was ok it wasn't enjoyable because of the heat. It was a cold and wet day so I can only imagine what it's like if it;s warm outside. The following morning we got breakfast and that was very poor quality. I said I was disappointed with my stay at front desk but that fell on deaf ears so I just paid and left . I will never return again. The reception staff were rude and the rooms were not nice.
