We attended a wedding and the reception was at the Lodge. Everything went very well considering it was organized from 4000 miles away in North Carolina.
Our room was spacious, comfortable and in the most part quiet. One disappointment was the wi fi which worked ok in the bar area but pretty much no where else.
The wedding reception was very good and the food was hot, tasty and beautifully presented. Drink prices are reasonable as was our room rate (particularly when compared to Ashford castle less than 1/2 a mile away!). We all walked in to town on the first evening and had a pub dinner at the Crows Nest (very good too) and it was less than a mile walk through the castle grounds.
If you go to the Lodge try to visit the School of Falconry behind the castle. It is pricey but absolutely worth the money. You get to fly a Harris Hawk and it is an awesome experience
Breakfast is served on the first floor and some tables have an outstanding view of Lough Corrib. A wonderful way to start your day.
A great hotel with attentive staff and a will to please their clients.
