This was a delightful venue for my daughter’s wedding. The two families stayed in the cottages and enjoyed the lovely accommodation and great facilities. It is a beautiful setting for a wedding. Marshall’s attention to detail, Martina’s great food and Padraig’s efficiency and helpfulness all contributed to a great experience for all.

My extended family and I rented the Park House for a few nights. Absolutely wonderful! Spacious, private and quirky accommodation. Fabulous grounds wiht swimming pool, tennis courts and billiards room. Both adults and children had a ball! The owner, Marshall, was very helpful and a lovely lady. Will definitley be back!

A friend had I are looking for a venue to host our joint 40th Birthday. We wanted a quiet hideaway, beautiful and out of the way to enjoy the company of our friends over the weekend. We are a group of thirty or so and I was advised to check out this beautiful castle. It is beautiful from the little we saw; the drive, the front of the castle and the lake view but unfortunately we saw the ugly side too. This review is not based on the stay but rather the experience that we had when we went to investigate. It was a beautiful day so we decided to make a drive to see the castle for ourselves. We had my Bichon, Charlie, to keep us company. He is a very small dog and was on a short leash the entire time. We drove out and eventually found the badly sign posted castle. Unfortunately the road leading to the castle is very poor and in bad condition with potholes both sides of the road in some places. There is no signage advising that no dogs are allowed so we drove in and parked with the other cars. Don’t get me wrong I would not expect the dog to be allowed into the house but I did expect - wrongly - that the dog might be allowed on to the premises. Again, if I had seen one sign we would have turned back but I did not and there was no bad intention on our part. Sadly it doesn’t end there as it is not immediately apparent where you pay the entrance fee. There was an open gate that appeared to lead to the gardens to our left but we walked right - towards the front of the house anticipating a sign or an office. We were actively looking for somewhere to pay but could not see one. The front door of the castle appeared to be locked. We walked past the front of the house expecting an office or a sign to come into view. It was at this stage that an elderly woman appeared shouting at us furiously from the front door. We were startled. She advised us that dogs were not permitted on the premises. I apologised and advised we were not aware as there was no signage to indicate that. It was an honest mistake. She continued to ‘roar’ at us and insisted we took the dog up from the ground immediately. She was quite hysterical but we obliged. The dog, a bischon, was on a lead but I took him up straight away. I cannot understate the venom in her voice as she told us ‘there is an entrance fee, you know!’ I replied that we were searching for a place to pay but we had not yet found it and as the dog was not welcome we would not be paying it and we would return to our car. She promptly slammed the door. We walked back around the corner towards the house. At this stage I did feel a bit bad but as if on cue she appeared at the rear of the house shouting again as I unlocked my car. As my eyes met hers at the rear of the castle she realised we were not trying to sneak in around the back but returning to our car as we said we would. She then said, “oh that’s ok then!” and slammed the patio door. That was twice, in the three minutes that we were on the grounds, that she had slammed a door in our faces. We drove away deeply upset but the only conclusion is that the ‘boom must be back’ if a castle can afford to treat its perspective guests with such disrespect. I understand she probably thought we were trying to ‘pull the wool over her eyes’ and get out of paying a twelve euro fee but I am writing this review in the hope that she reads it and realises that her behavior cost her in excess of approximately 3000 euro. It might be cheaper for her to get a few signs.

This place is great to really get away from the world. Lovely pool, comfy beds, good showers, wood burning stoves, very clean and warm. Garden walks, forest walks, open space by the lake. The kids were never bored exploring Note it’s an old castle so WiFi & phone reception are so so. The billiards room was a little cold to play on the occasion we were there. But these are minor. This place is an experience in getting away from it all in a quirky place. Us 7 adults and 6 kids loved it.

Oh my goodness this place!! 12 of us stayed at the St. George accommodation last weekend for my sister's hen weekend. It was fabulous! Being February we had the place to ourselves with access to the tennis courts, boating on the lake, walks around the grounds and gardens, and a heated swimming pool! The weather was really cold so we didn't avail of the tennis or boating but made plenty use of the pool! The accommodation itself is amazing. Lovingly renovated and decorated. 6 double or twin rooms, all en suite with showers and baths. A little self catering kitchen area which was perfect for us. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to have hit on such a find! We watched rugby in the games room on the Saturday followed by some table tennis. Although we went out to Galway city to eat Saturday night, we didn't have to and could have happily stayed put the whole weekend. Moycullen and Oughterard are only 7km in either direction. We were a little late checking out (due to staying too long in the pool!) but Marshall, the lovely owner, never made us feel anything but welcome, despite having another booking after us, and we made the quickest possible exit. I'd recommend this place to anybody. Thank you Marshall!
