Attended a dear friends 50th Birthday party here. We had flown into Belfast, hired a car and drove the 2 hours to the Hotel. It was a long day and we arrived tired, cold and hungry. Despite a very busy venue (an 80th Birthday Party) the lovely staff sorted us out with tea, soup, sandwiches and some beautiful pints of...

I went here for the New Years Eve dinner. At €65 per head, excluding wine, I expected exceptional food and service. Unfortunately I think that it was overbooked with too few staff and the food was mediocre. We were met with a champagne reception and greeting. The delay in getting food out after sitting for over an hour and not...

Had a really great meal in an ambience of a period country house that welcomes you in settles you by the fire and slows the hectic in your day. Great service in a quiet night in the restaurant left us mellow and smiling and wanting to return.

A very quirky old hotel with lots of very quaint rooms to relax in. The rooms are furnished in traditional style, ours was full of period pieces and perhaps cluttered. Our hot water was not functioning and we were quickly allocated a new room. However the settings were still not right, Luke warm but we survived. Breakfasts were very good...

The Castle Grove House is exactly the type of place I was hoping to find while traveling thru Ireland. A beautiful country house with a very welcoming hostess....and at a very reasonable price. Our room was large and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was very good.

There are some places you go and want to stay for much longer than you originally thought. This is one of those places. Charming, attentive staff that serve with a sense of occasion and aplomb. Tempered with a wry Donegal irony. Actually, just go there and unwind in coils.
