Went with my husband in early Feb. We did have to cancel our first trip and were accommodated before our Voucher expired. Our voucher was worth €500 but if we paid that in full, would have found it very overpriced. Castle was cold (naturally) but heater in room not working so had to depend on a small electric fire. Our bed was lovely - a four poster bed with an electric blanket - but room was small. Bathroom also cold. We were asked if we were staying in that night (we weren't) would be contribute towards firewood for a wood burning stove in Guest Drawing Room. I was expecting a big "Henry VIII" fire - fireplace there alright but no fire! Would have made a huge difference. No breakfast included - again, told we could go to Quin for scones or whatever for breakfast in Castle or for a proper cooked breakfast in the Village, which we did. Maybe if we were from the USA, we would have been impressed with an Irish Castle, but as we are both Irish, it wasn't such a big deal and next time I will be going to Dromoland or somewhere warmer and more comfortable and might I say better value!
