Lovely weekend. Staff were friendly and helpful at all times. Rooms were very clean and comfy. Food was very nice and a great selection. The walled garden is lovely and well worth a walk around. Excellent for golfing as well.

Had a coffee and a lovely walk in the gardens beside the golf clubhouse. There is outside seating in the gardens which makes for a pleasant afternoon. The castle itself is quite spectacular and the golf course is very well kept. Good transport link being near Shannon airport and just off the M18.

Had a fab relaxing meal in the great hall area. Really nice to drop in without a reservation and pick from their casual dining menu. Then sit and enjoy the food, the exceptional service and the location. Will go back soon again for afternoon tea but will book that in advance.

We recently stayed at the hotel for our son's 18th birthday. I have to say that this facility is one of the nicest at which we have stayed.
