I had the most wonderful two days in Kinnitty Castle hotel, thanks to my husband who booked it as a birthday treat. He has wanted to come here for years and decided to book this for the two of us. We stayed in the Cormac Room and it was great. I didn't expect to have so many old traditional features...

The castle was excellent and full of atmosphere. Staff at all levels - bar, restaurant, reception - were absolutely TOP class. Best service I've had in a long time, and I stay in many, many hotels, of all standards including high end ones. I've had better service here than several very famous hotels elsewhere. Food was outstanding and service impeccable....

Been going to Kinnitty Castle for 20 years. I've seen it through some changes. Most importantly however, one thing that hasn't changed is the genuine friendly welcome you receive on arrival. The Team are very friendly & helpful. More recently the investment in the Castle can be seen & the improvements look the part. Food is well prepared & delicious...

We have stayed in a cave hotel that blew us away and this hotel comes in at a very close second. It's different and fun and amazing. Everything had so much character and at the same time it was comfortable, the service was great and the food was really good. The walls are thin, but since we have learned to...

I have been visiting Kinnity Castle for the past 17 years... it has improved to become a sort after experience. We fortunately booked "Dine in the Dark" - blindfolded dining... if you wish (in aid of NCBI)... wow!!! A first for Kinnity and us. The atmosphere of Kinnity for a night out with visitors from the UK is always great...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kinnitty Castle, is close to the picturesque village of Kinnitty, Co. Offaly set beautifully against a backdrop of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. The Castle has a long and turbulent history. Dating originally from 1209, Kinnitty was destroyed and rebuilt not once but twice and yet it retains character and oozes charm. Kinnity is in a great location only 90 minutes from Dublin and is a great stop off point for journeys west or southwards. It is an exceptional place for lovers of good food and the great outdoors. ... more   less

“Ask for a room with a view at the front of the castle so you won't overlook overgrowth at the back”
