Excellent. Very relaxing. Great food. Comfortable and friendly. An absolutely brilliant experience. Would recommend for a quiet and peaceful break. Worth looking at the history of the house it is fascinating.

We've just had our wedding at Castle Grove Country House last weekend and it was absolutley tremendous. The service from all staff was second to none and the food/drink and atmosphere was more than we could ever have expected. It made planning our wedding so much less stressful knowing we were in safe hands, and with so many guests travelling from around the World, this was so important to us. THANK YOU for your amazing attention to detail and genuine interest and support. Wishing you continued success.

Attention to detail and totally customer focused , this birthday party was off to a good start ! The menu on the table was a dillemma , what to have ? It was absolutely delicious , truly 5 star and catering for 70ppl was a breeze for the well trained competent staff.
The lady of the house did the rounds of the tables asking with genuine care if you enjoyed your meal. I would most definetly reccommend this hotel to anyone.

From the minute you step through the door to the day you leave, Irene and her family make you feel at home. Nothing is too much trouble, particularly when it comes to recommendations for interesting local attractions. The hotel is clearly 'full of character' but of even greater importance, the chef is first class. No hesitation in pointing you in their direction.

We stayed here on Saturday the 20th July and it was superb. We booked online on our wau through town after reading the great reviews and were not disappointed at all. The staff were really helpful and friendly and did everything possible to make our stay as good as possible. Our room was huge and very well decorated. We had dinner in the restaurant and I have to say it was exceptional. We had 5 courses and finished with coffee in the drawing room. They have a very good wine selection and they are happy to help make a good selection to compliment your meal.
Overall the Service, location, food and value for money was the best we experienced in 9 days of travelling around Ireland. Love this place, will definitely come back and would recommend to anyone looking for a romantic break & fantastic food. First class all round!

Room Tip: There are no lifts as you would expect in an old house like this so request a ground floor if you st...

I recently celebrated a milestone birthday with family and friends at the wonderful Castlegrove country house hotel, near Letterkenny. Choosing the venue for this occasion , was extremely easy. This hotel is without doubt one of the finest in the North west of Ireland. An old country house steeped in history, set in a stunning location, and magnificant grounds which overlook Lough Swilly. On the long impressive drive down to the house from the main road, you are immediately eclipsed by the feeling that your visit here is going to be special and unique. We have been to Castlegrove many times in the past and true to form, on this special occasion we were not disppointed. Some of our guests had travelled from abroad,and the rest from various parts of Ireland, each and every one were overwhelmed by the Castlegrove experience. The hotel is run by the delightful, charming Mary Sweeney and her two lovely daughters,Karoline and Irene. They have a very professional, pleasant and courteous waiting staff who are in a league of their own. Eileen and her team, make every effort to ensure that your dining experience is a special one. The cuisine has to be among the finest in Donegal, fresh locally sourced produce and vegetables and fruit from their walled garden are prepared by the excellent chefs for the dinner menu. On the evening in question Mary Sweeney went around all the tables and greeted each of our guests, to enquire if they enjoyed their meal, the attention to detail is second to none. The following morning we enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast served by the very pleasant, and friendly waitress Mary. If you are in Donegal, Castlegrove is a must to visit, for a dining experience, and stay. You will remember it for a long time.

It was a little piece of heaven, experiencing a country home and hospitality, we stumbled across this property by chance but wished we could have stayed longer. Some delightful history on the property provided if you care to ask and run by owners and staff that have been there for years.
Wonderful old time rooms and grounds to wonder. It was like visiting my grandmothers home with reading rooms, sun rooms, drawing rooms and afternoon tea served at 4PM. The surprise was the dining room where the evening meal and breakfast deserved a Michelin Star rating.
