Really enjoyed this hotel. Although only 100 or so years old it truly captures the essence of a period castle. The grounds are beautiful, and having to get a ferry across adds a little to the experience. The lobby is truly magnificent, the fireplace is a great place to spend a couple of hours on a cold day!
We rented a suite. It was massive. It had antique furniture which is a nice touch. The rooms are not perfect but the imperfection adds to the experiance in my view. The bed was comdortable and clean. The bathroom and study were similar to the bedroom in condition/style etc.
We went for a package with meal and breakfrast The dinner was top class, my wife and I both enjoyed our meal. The suggested wines were also reasonable and also suited the food being served. The dining area is also beautiful! Service was prompt, freindly and efficient!
Breakfast menu was certainly more varied than most hotels, with Irish, continental and American menus.
All in all a great experience, castle, island, good food. If thats what you are looking for you wont be disapointed! Great for a quiet weekend!
