“Weekend Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

We are getting married there in March next year and after the weekend I can't wait to experience the full day with all in Cabra Castle. On the Saturday night we got the lovely pleasure of staying in the Bridal Suite in the Courtyard and I can't say enough how we enjoyed the experience. There was another couple who also came down with us and their room was also perfect. It was right next to ours and the 4 of us had the chance to really enjoy the luxurious space in the Bridal suite.

Not only that but we had dinner in the restaurant on the Saturday night and the food was magnificent. The service was also superb.

We normally deal with Therese but we met with Paul as Therese was not around and he was very helpful also, in fact all of the staff were wonderful.

Be careful when you check out of Cabra Castle. Their billing system is as old as the property itself. I was given an invoice that I approved and payed for with mastercard. When I checked my mastercard statement a few days later there was another charge from Cabra Castle that I was not aware of or had approved, which was a larger amount than the first mastercard charge. When I emailed the castle to find out what had happened they claimed they had not charged the full amount so charged my master card account without my permission or knowledge. There was no invoice attached to explain the extra charges nor was I contacted at any stage to tell me I had been charged the extra amount. It took over 5 emails to have the extra charges explained by 3 different people that still did not make sense to me or others I had traveled with. All I really found out from my inquiries was that Cabra Castle had an old invoicing system with inexperienced staff. The castles words not mine

Cabra Castle is so incredibly beautiful. Every detail is a delight for the eyes! The grounds are spectacular and the staff is charming. The food at both breakfast and dinner was superb. The castle is both relaxed and magnificent at once.
You feel like you could actually be the queen of the castle! I loved every minute of it.

Myself and wife spent our year anniversary in Cabra Castle last Friday 23rd May. From when I booked they were outstanding. Upgrading us to the second honeymoon suite(free of charge). The girl would checked us is was so so friendly and probably more excited than we were out the room we were getting. The room was amazing and so elegant. We went down for our evening dinner and upon dessert they wrote on the plates ' Happy Anniversary' making us feel so special again. The experience we received was just the same as if it was our wedding the year before. They do everything right and so nice. On return to our room they had come in and turned down our bed removing all the decorative pillows.

I would recommend Cabra Castle to anyone for a wedding or stay in general. The grounds are beautiful, the castle is magnificent, the staff are great, the rooms are lovely, the food is amazing. They cannot do enough for you from start to finish.

From the registering for our room, to the dinner, the friendly visitors in the Bar later in the evening who delighted us with Irish stories/myths - the leisurely breakfast and friendly staff -it was the perfect ending, along with warm sunshine, to our Irish vacation.

Room Tip: - very accommodating to change the sleeping quarters from a King, to separate twin beds. In the cour...

The castle is in a gorgeous location. However the room we had first was very outdated with no air conditioning. The windows had been open prior to us coming into the room and since they have no screens we had a bee and a few other insects inside. The walls and floor are incredibly thin, we could hear the people below us talking and hear their TV. Our TV was broken and the staff was nice and moved us to another room in the courtyard. That room was significantly nicer and the furniture was much more up to date. The castle only has wifi in a common area which was a huge disappointment. When we tried to use it we couldn't get it to work, when we would open up a webpage we were asked to sign in even though it was not a password protected network. The next morning we called the desk to ask if there was a continental breakfast included or not and were we told yes. When we went and got seated a couple minutes later we were told that we had to pay 10 euro each for it, we I guess had a room only and not breakfast. We got the room as part of a package so there might have been some distinction when booking however but we never saw that process so I don't know. I just wish the person at the desk might have asked what room or for some other information if there is a difference between rooms on whether or not you get charged for breakfast. The breakfast itself was all cold foods, cereal fruit and some danishes and the milk and juice had been sitting out so it was all warm. If we had known we would have went in town and got a much better deal and a warm breakfast.

Got married here nearly 14 years ago :) The wedding reception was fantastic. Bridal suite not good but since then it has had a wonderful re vamp and going by pictures it is gorgeous. Location still as fab, food fab, staff fab and now Honeymoon suite fantastic. If I was to do it all again would be here once more. Eat here often in bar and restaurant and food is perfect. Well worth a visit for dinner, brunch, lunch or even a wedding. It a fantastic location and was covered in snow the day I got married - magical :)

Room Tip: In the Castle now as rooms updated and much quieter as rooms in stables very noisey :(
