We had a break up at Castleburn, and were very happy with the stay. Our holiday was with 2 other couples, and the unit we were issued was more than sufficient space wise for 6 of us.
The units were neat and clean, and were specked out with good furniture and equipment.
We were right on the doorstep of the trout fishing lakes, and although the fishing was not great ( i only got 1 small fish in 3 days ) I had a great time trying. Some of our friends went horse riding, and we also went on a lovely mountain bike ride around the lakes and property
At the main office there is a lovely little restaurant overlooking the main lake. The staff go out of their way to help you with whatever you need ( we forgot to bring fresh cream with, and kindly the kitchen staff gave us a big cup to help us out )
Its definitely a place we would return to
