We had our wedding here in August, and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. All of our guests commented on the fantastic atmosphere, amazing food, but most of all the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. A special mention must go to Cavan, Simon and Connor. What a great team. We had nothing to worry about and we enjoyed a fabulous day along with our family and friends. Anybody considering Kinnitty for their wedding should book it without hesitation

Great staff, good food, midieval atmosphere, quiet, isolated. Feel like The Lord of the Manor, walk the grounds, no chance to use amenities, no time while there, great pub, The Library, able to see banquet room set up for wedding dinner, very nice. Celtic cross on the property. Would stay again.

We had visited in January time so the weather wasn't great. Bit of snow on the way home etc. The staff where very helpful and the food was good quality and value. It is an old castle so it's not going to be sterile. There where a few cob webs and the windows where a bit dirty but you expect that for the time of the year. Would recommend breakfast in bed. Well done Kinnitty.

My husband and I stayed in Kinnitty Castle with 2 friends of ours from Texas who had never been to Ireland and wanted to see castles. They were thrilled with Kinnitty as were we. The staff were really friendly, The food was excellent and the service professional and warm and friendly. The rooms were exactly what we expected - big spacious rooms with big furniture and lovely old world baths.

I would definitely recommend this to you if you are looking from something different. A great experience that I would certainly do again.

I have always wanted to stay in a castle and was not disappointed. Beautiful location, great service, lovely food. Bed was so big and comfortable, slightly noisy (thin walls) but would most certainly recommend it. Very romantic and worth a visit.
