    I liked the atmosphere of the house and the sense of history and and elegence it invoked.

  • Couple

    The setting and the staff were great

    It's a small thing but just some drinking water in the bedroom would have been nice!

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    The decor and room size was excellent and the staff were extremely helpful. The food was good quality and the dining room was well presented and clean.

    The heating was automatically turned off at 9:30pm which is a problem if you are from a warm country. We had to ask to have the heating turned back on. This appears to be a common issue in many hotels in Ireland.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    The Martin Family, all 10 of us, grandmother, parents, children, baby, loved the Castle, a real castle, filled with not one, but two wide stair- cases, big windows, big beds, fluffy covers and pillows, big bathroom and tub with strong, hot water. The kids liked the donkeys and ponies they saw first moment we arrived. Also, they'll remember friendly "Arthur" and the other dog whose name I can't remember, but he was sweet too. We all will remember the big dinner table in the castle dining hall, the kind servers who brought us dinner. We all enjoyed the big buffet and being able to order something special cooked just for us. We played frisbee in the backyard as the day turned to night about 9pm. Thank you very much!

    We stayed only one night as we were touring Ireland, six different areas in just six days. We liked everything about the hotel during our stay. The kids couldn't get used to the bacon, only because ours' is skinny and crisp and yours' is wide and more chewy. The adults all loved it. So I guess we liked everything about the hotel.....

    Enjoyed the surroundings and finding out about the Blennerhassett family history.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Beautiful setting! There was a minature horse with her one month old foal and four donkeys in a field just outside the front door. Arthur greeted us, he is an Irish Wolfhound and Einstein (some kind of mix ?). The staff was very helpful and cordial. We felt as though we were the owners of the castle! It was a lovely experience!

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The staff (especially the bartenders) were very helpful in providing directions and making recommendations for site seeing. They were great! The breakfast choices were wonderful and despite the number of guests present the staff were very attentive to each of us. We did have dinner one night in the bar and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The seafood chowder is incredible. The castle is simply beautiful and we highly recommend it to all. It is truly a unique experience.

    Unfortunately, I have back problems and the mattress was too soft for me. It was difficult not sleeping well for 2 nights. The bedroom was beautiful otherwise. Another minor issue was not having coffee available in the lounge for guests in the morning.

    Very warm welcome especially by Arthur and Einstein. Excellent room and very good facilities throughout the castle. The breakfast and dining in the evening was superb and is highly recommended. The staff were very keen to help with all enquiries with regard to local trips and amenities, and very helpful with our onward journey.An extremely pleasant stay in a first class hotel.

    I loved the big grey Irish Wolfhound!

    Bathroom needs refurbishment.

    Was a unforgettable experience and a treat. Service and staff were fantastic.

  • Family with children
    5.4

    The food was amazing, but the room accomodations were a bit shabby. Did not get the requested room type.

    Did not get that "castle experience."

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Did not like the dogs walking about the hotel and into the dining room. Initial greeting and reception was poor

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    It was luxury but also gave the feeling that you were a guest in someones home

  • Single
    7.8

    Historical ambience

    THey need to spend a little more on maintenance in the rooms and hallways (Loose faucets, drywall tape on walls etc...). Also they need to make the ground floor room windows more secure.
