“The Staff are brilliant at this hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

The hotel staff at this hotel make the hotel as they are very friendly and nothing is to much trouble.

The hotel is very clean and a good place to put the head down but it is dated and could do with a refurb.

I didnt get using the pool facilities or the restaurant so can't comment on that.

If in Castleblaney again i would use this hotel.

We got a very friendly welcome from girl on reception and all staff were very helpful. The hotel is so close to town cetre and there is a lovely park at lower end of street in which to walk. We attended dancing in your lovely ballrom on friday night after listening to music in lounge. Overall a very enjoyable stay. Definitely would go back again

Room Tip: We got a room away from street noise as we live in the country.

This is the second wedding my partners family has had here and with good reason, like the first one a few years back this one was excellent too! The food was lovely, arrived very fast ensuring it was piping hot, the menu choice we had was very good and I especially loved those wee garlic potato balls, very moreish! Staff were very friendly and accomodating and the service was second to none. The location of the hotel is in the centre of Castleblayney should you want to get out and look around. I was suitably impressed overall with this hotel and had a most enjoyable day and evening at the wedding.

My husband and I have just had a two night golf beak at the Glencarn Hotel. Firstly we had to delay our trip due to illness by one day..and this was not a problem to the hotel. They changed our dates wth absolutely no fuss. Every member of staff from Lorraine on Reception to all the bar/waiting staff and those in the Leisure Centre could not have been more friendly and helpful, they made the whole experience completely relaxing and enjoyable. They even went so far as to book us an extra round of golf at Nuremore Golf Club to add to that which was already included in our package at Concra Wood Golf Club. The staff and facilities are a credit to the management in these difficult financial times. Well done..for going that extra mile (kilometer!!!)

Room Tip: Our room was quite basic (but we are filthy smokers..we will give up). But on leaving we saw some ro...

My brother and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Glencarn Hotel in Castleblayney in June 2013. This was the first stop on our week long visit to the Emerald Isle and it turned out to be one of the best memories of our trip. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff went out of their way to be welcoming and helpful. We arrived here after a long overseas flight and a two hour drive just after the breakfast service had stopped but the hotel staff accomodated us just the same. Later that evening, I happened to mention to the gentleman who seated us in the restaurant that we had ancestors from Castleblayney and that was the reason why we had chosen to stop there. Before we knew it he had called the local historian who arrived at the hotel literally within minutes. This conversation led to a tour of the town the following day complete with information on our ancestors which he had gone home and researched well into the night. All of this was possible because the gentleman (who turned out to be the managing director of the hotel) went out of his way and made that phone call. I would highly recommend a stay at the Glencarn, we thoroughly enjoyed it.

We stayed in the hotel from 24 to 26th May last. We had 19 members with us ranging in age from mid 30th's to mid 60th's. Each member has nothing but praise for this Hotel, the wonderful staff who at all times were so helpful, courteous and professional, from reception to the restaurant and the bar. The food was excellent and plentiful and standard of service excellent too!!! We had arranged to eat in the restaurant on Saturday night, but as it was Champions League final night, the staff reserved a section in the bar for us so we could see the football, and served us dinner there. No request was too much for the staff in this wonderful hotel. A huge thank you to Kathleen Lavelle for all her assistance, and all the staff, we will definitely return next year!!
