All the staff are very friendly and very helpful. The gardens & grounds are a gardeners dream! The food is excellent - we had turbot & chicken both of which were delicious and big portions (no need for sides unless you have been fasting beforehand in anticipation!). Breakfast was very tasty.

Amazing food, staff and surroundings. Have attended a wedding here as well as visiting many times for dinner, lunch etc. The gardens are beautiful if you fancy a stroll. Very atmospheric all year round but escpecially during the festive season. Highly recommended.

Dinner was excellent with a nice menu and wonderful staff. Breakfast was equally as good with a wonderful choice and gluten free options. Our only negative was with the bar were two of the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Castle Durrow is located in the heart of the village. A fully restored, magnificent 300 year old Mansion with luxurious bedrooms each with their own atmosphere. Our restaurant is located in stunning south-facing rooms, decorated with mirrors and hand blocked wallpaper, our head chef creates delicious seasonal menus, popular with visitors and locals alike. We are a terrific place to relax and let romance and Guinness de-stress the mind and body in our cosy bar and reception rooms. In the Magnificent garden, with fabulous scented borders and a walled garden, from where our chefs pick their daily produce, you can stroll around for hours or have a more vigorous walk by the river and in the hills adjoining the castle. A stay at the castle with Dinner and some romance would not be complete without a beauty treatment in our salon , aptly named the Powder box ! ... more   less
