We had visited Castle Grove previously and we were very pleased with it. Our latest visit was in winter and we were every bit as pleased as on our previous visit. The welcome was just as friendly and if you have stayed previously you will be remembered. The food is excellent. It is a very quiet hotel to stay in...

This was our fourth trip and are booked in for a further two. Mary and her team have never let us down and all 10 of us are looking forward to our next trip later in the year. Great value venue, set in private Parkland, very peaceful over looking a sea loch. Good food cooked well.

Every time we have visited this location I have truly felt at home and have taken with me many wonderful memories from numerous...

Attended a dear friends 50th Birthday party here. We had flown into Belfast, hired a car and drove the 2 hours to the Hotel. It was a long day and we arrived tired, cold and hungry. Despite a very busy venue (an 80th Birthday Party) the lovely staff sorted us out with tea, soup, sandwiches and some beautiful pints of...

I went here for the New Years Eve dinner. At €65 per head, excluding wine, I expected exceptional food and service. Unfortunately I think that it was overbooked with too few staff and the food was mediocre. We were met with a champagne reception and greeting. The delay in getting food out after sitting for over an hour and not...

Had a really great meal in an ambience of a period country house that welcomes you in settles you by the fire and slows the hectic in your day. Great service in a quiet night in the restaurant left us mellow and smiling and wanting to return.

A very quirky old hotel with lots of very quaint rooms to relax in. The rooms are furnished in traditional style, ours was full of period pieces and perhaps cluttered. Our hot water was not functioning and we were quickly allocated a new room. However the settings were still not right, Luke warm but we survived. Breakfasts were very good...
