Other review titles are "Reliably good" & "Wonderful food, stunning view". Reviews cannot really describe just how good the food is at Castle Murray. This will probably help - we have a favorite restaurant in Co. Antrim, after our last stay in Castle Murray we were booked in to that restaurant the next evening - we cancelled! Not because the...

We have been coming here to beautiful St. John's Point for special occasions and the odd Sunday lunch for many years. During that time it's turned from a B&B to a proper hotel, but the restaurant remains our destination. The setting is spectacular, and an early booking ensures sunset views across the bay towards Killybegs. The short menu has a... More

The view from Castle Murray Hotel is beautiful. Stunning views across green fields, the ruin of the castle and the water. But what really makes the difference is at this hotel/restaurant is the staff: they are great. They did their very best to make our stay an excellent experience. And they succeeded!

We rode our motorcycle through the craziest winds we've ever encountered, and arrived to an oasis of calm and attentiveness. From Dylan taking our wet clothes to be dried for us, to our lovely attic room with a private balcony and great views of the hillsides, sheep and the sea, to the fantastic dinner while watching the storm roll in,...

Castle Murray is a beautiful property with wonderful views. The hotel has lovely friendly staff, who are so accommodating. We stayed for two nights and dined in the restaurant both nights. The food was wonderful with lovely extras such as homemade breads and sorbet. There was a lovely buzz with guests clearly enjoying the food and atmosphere of the place.... More
