Our first visit to the Castle - and we will be back. From the time we were greeted at the desk to the time we left, everything was 100% - without exception. The staff are SO friendly. And I mean ALL of them. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived (we were early) and we went for some lunch. When... More

I recently stayed overnight in The Castle Hotel while on business in the area. From the moment I stepped into the hotel I was made very welcome. The bedroom was very clean, in fact the whole hotel was very presentable. I dined in the bar and the food was excellent. For starter I had the chicken wings and my main... More

I visited this hotel on Sunday last. I just wanted a quick snack. I had been here in the past and thought it was lovely but was very disapointed with the offering on Sunday. I had mushroom soup which was tasteless. My partner had the chicken which was very dry. On the upside the staff were friendly.

I passed through Macroom on business and fell in love. I promised my wife I'd bring her her on a trip to Ireland. The Castle Hotel has a small front on the main street but runs deep and is much larger than it appears. It had comfortable rooms and a great spa and pool that we took advantage of. The... More

Drove to Killarney through Macroom and liked the look of the town, so decided that we'd try and eat there on the way back. We made a good choice! The Castle Hotel is big and well appointed, and has a good crew of cheerful and attentive staff. The menu isn't huge, but they clearly focus on fresh and don't over-complicate... More

Attended a family event in the Castle in early August. The meal was superb. Very well presented and the staff was friendly and courteous. The facilities were excellent private and away from the hustle and bustle of a usually busy hotel.

The Castle Hotel clearly has a historic past as a coaching stop on the road west of Cork, but has been greatly extended to the rear in the last century. It has its own car park (accessed via a side road), but if there are no spaces, as we found, there may be on-road spaces in the market square within... More
