“Relaxation with a view ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Every time my in-laws come up from Cork we love to visit the hotel and sit in the front by the sliding door and have tea & scones. With the stunning views over the bay and the friendly staff, it makes for a really lovely afternoon out.

“Top class food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

2 lunches, 1 breakfast, 1 dinner, all amazing.
Food is top class, particularly local seafood and salmon from their own smokehouse.
Treat yourself.......

“Disappointing and Poor Dining Experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

We were looking forward to a meal at Castlemurray House on Easter Sunday evening; I had dined there before and found the food and service excellent. However, on this occasion, the service was very poor; food was literally thrown on the table by a constant stream of different waiters/waitresses. None of them explained anything about the food and on being asked it appeared we were really inconveniencing them!
Dessert wine was ordered but did not come until after the dessert was eaten--no apology or reason was given.
The dinner menu included tea and coffee--however, we were charged extra for the tea and coffee because a green tea and a milky coffee was ordered--however, we were not told they would not be included. The issue is not the price of the tea/coffee but the arrogant and careless attitude of the serving staff.
The quality of the food was satisfactory--however, the poor service ruined the evening. When we mentioned about the service in a polite manner the young waitress just walked away.
The views were superb; however, in that area there are several other high quality restaurants which offer a superb dining experience.
I am really disappointed in our experience at Castle murray House--I have been dining there over a period of 20 years plus.

“Eat and Stay. The Breakfast food and view.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We have eaten and stayed here over the years. Sometimes as a couple occasionally with friends. None of us have been disappointed either by the food or the rooms. The rooms are all different, interesting, quaint, you might need to specify what sort of room you want.
If you enjoy fresh fish, it's always good and you can usually have some more for breakfast. You can watch the local fishermen bringing in the shellfish from the dining room. Staff are friendly and helpful.

“A Longlasting memory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

We ate here in July 2012 and we still remember the experience. Not so much for the food, even though it must have been very good, but for the view! It was more than spectacular. It was a really nice sunset and it had everything you wanted to wish from Ireland: Sea, clouds, hills, green, a bit of rain and when you thought it can't get any better they send the horses out to play in the frontyard. Unforgettable experience.
