Great accommodation with excellent food overlooking the Wild Irish Coast line. The rooms have views and are very comfortable. The food is first class in a setting to die for. Again seafood features but it is all fantastic. Great spot to go walking along the coast.

This deserves 6* just back from celebrating my husband's 50th birthday at Castle Murray, we spent two fantastic nights here and could not have been made to feel more welcome. The staff are so friendly and Fabrice deserves a special mention as he was so helpful and friendly. The food was to die for and the attention to detail was...

We had a lovely stay there recently, staff on arrival were friendly and nice. We were given the bridal suite which was up a stairway on its own with a huge balcony. The room was cosy, warm and decorated nicely. Dinner was excellent as was the service. Breakfast was yum. Plenty of variety and very relaxed. A great night away...

Other review titles are "Reliably good" & "Wonderful food, stunning view". Reviews cannot really describe just how good the food is at Castle Murray. This will probably help - we have a favorite restaurant in Co. Antrim, after our last stay in Castle Murray we were booked in to that restaurant the next evening - we cancelled! Not because the...

We have been coming here to beautiful St. John's Point for special occasions and the odd Sunday lunch for many years. During that time it's turned from a B&B to a proper hotel, but the restaurant remains our destination. The setting is spectacular, and an early booking ensures sunset views across the bay towards Killybegs. The short menu has a...

The view from Castle Murray Hotel is beautiful. Stunning views across green fields, the ruin of the castle and the water. But what really makes the difference is at this hotel/restaurant is the staff: they are great. They did their very best to make our stay an excellent experience. And they succeeded! (Big thanks to Fabrice for his magnificent care!)...

We rode our motorcycle through the craziest winds we've ever encountered, and arrived to an oasis of calm and attentiveness. From Dylan taking our wet clothes to be dried for us, to our lovely attic room with a private balcony and great views of the hillsides, sheep and the sea, to the fantastic dinner while watching the storm roll in,...

We loved our visit to this fabulously stunning setting and view. We were here for brunch with friends and were taken to a seating area with a stunning view where we ordered drinks and relaxed. After a time, we were ushered into the restaurant. I just love that.....the relax, before the meal! The dinner was excellent, we all of course...
