“Ideal for Cabra Castle wedding”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Stayed at the Plantation lodge as we were attending a wedding in nearby Cabra castle. Ideal location as it was less than a minutes drive to the Castle, which the owners were kind enough to drop and collect us from at our convenience and at no extra charge!

Service was excellent, highly recommended !!

I stayed here recently with my boyfriend and another couple and we loved it. The couple who own it were so nice, dropped us to the hotel after the church part of the wedding and organised for us to get a lift home from hotel staff after the wedding. It is only 3 mins from Cabra castle and the food is fab as are the rooms.

Highly recommend this place :)

Stayed in The Plantation Lodge as we had a wedding in Cabra Castle. House was lovely and our room was very big. The B&B is only a short drive to the castle, its the perfect place to stay if you are going to an event in the castle. Breakfast in the morning was top notch...we had a full Irish and it was lovely. Hosts are very friendly and welcoming. We would highly recommend this B&B.

Stayed in this B&B as we were attending a wedding in Cabra Castle...
It is less than 5 minutes drive from the castle but definitely too far to walk at night.
Our room was beautifully decorated.
It was a Family Room as we had originally planned on bringing our children.
There were 2 double beds, 1 single bed & a cot in the room. The room was en-suite. Flat screen television on the wall.
When we came in that night from the wedding, the house was warm & inviting.
The room was lovely and warm.
However, the house was quite cold the next morning. We were woken early by the brightness coming through the windows in the bedroom.
There was blinds on the windows but they weren't blackout blinds and so we were awake from 7.30am.
There was a fantastic shower in the en-suite...
Kathleen had a fantastic big full Irish breakfast ready for us the next morning. Cereal beforehand, orange juice, tea, toast, brown bread.... Breakfast was lovely and piping hot.
Kathleen and Emmet are a lovely couple who own the B&B and Emmet had assured us that he would give us a lift up to the Hotel and also return us to the B&B. We were very glad of this offer although we ended up not needing a lift.
The B&B cost €35 each for the night incl breakfast.
If there was more people staying in the family room the cost would have been €30 per head.
I would not hesitate in recommending this B&B to anyone attending a wedding in Cabra Castle.

Myself, my husband and my two kids stayed at this just simply fantastic guest house as we were attending a wedding in Cabra Castle. Kathleen and Emmett were very welcoming and made us feel right at home. The rooms were very spacious and spotlessly clean, you couldn't have asked for better. It is very easy find this guest house as it is situated just 2 mins outside Kingscourt and 5 mins from Cabra Castle. There is a great choice for breakfast and the food is fantastic. The guesthouse is in beautiful country surroundings and i would highly recommend it as an alternative to the castle as it is definitely a 5 star B&B. We will be back!!!!!

I stayed here for a wedding in Cabra Castle. The guesthouse was lovely and the owners could not have been more friendly or helpful - even giving me a lift to the wedding venue! Breakfast was lovely too. I would highly recommend this guesthouse.

Best b&b stay I have ever experienced in Ireland, cannot wait to go back next year,its located on the road to Cabra Castle which is my personal best spot.There is a great choice of breakfast and the food is fantastic.I have found Emmet and Kathleen to be great hosts and very helpful.We attended a wedding in Cabra Castle and Emmet had dropped us home at about 3am. Plantation Lodge is well worth a visit and is certainly a 5 star b&b.

Room Tip: I would like to say room 3 is a very nice room,it's a single room with a large en suite to go,so...
