“Great weekend break”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

We had a very spacious suite shared by four people, 3 bedrooms, clean, tidy, comfortable and a great price. The whole set up is efficiently run by friendly and efficient staff, breakfast was well organised and of good quality, all set in a very picturesque countryside setting. Bar area overlooks the golf course, fantastic carvery for Sunday lunch, we'll go again.

We spent 3 days at Castle Dargan while exploring Yeats' country. The staff and facilities were excellent. We particularly enjoyed the spa and the apartment in the walled garden. We hope this beautiful property can survive the economic downturn..highly recommend it for a getaway to beautiful Sligo.

We stayed in Castle Dargan for two nights 23rd/24th October. We had an enjoyable two nights although the hotel was a bit quiet at night. The hotel is well appointed and does not pretend to be anything it is not, with a very friendly group of staff.
Our room was cold and that appeared to be a general problem with other guests we spoke with. We ate in the restaurant on our second night and had a nice meal, eating out on our first night in Sligo which we also enjoyed. Breakfast was my favourite with the porridge including honey and cream to die for. The two local pubs were interesting and the locals were extremely friendly and welcoming.
My wife enjoyed day two in the Spa while I went for a game of golf on the rather soggy golf course, although it must be said that if the conditions underfoot are dry it would be a great test of golf even for the best.
All in all we enjoyed our first visit to this part of Ireland and will be back at some point

I am just back from a weekend in Castle Dargan and I cannot say enough good things about it. I organised the trip for myself and three girlfriends as we live in different parts of the country and wanted to have a proper catch up. We got a fantastic deal which included a spa treatment and we made full use of the thermal suite. The staff were extremely friendly and polite. Our every need was taken care of. The Hotel is very relaxing and the food was fabulous. All in all we had a fantastic time and we are already looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Book early for the Spa to avoid disappointment, it is definitely worth it.

We stayed in Castle Dargan hotel recently. We had a very pleasant stay here. When we arrived we were shown to our room. It was a twin room despite us requesting a double. This was promptly resolved. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was very nice, but I do wish hotels would give more than the "Full Irish" breakfast. Variety would be nice. We had a beautiful meal in the restaurant. All the staff were most polite and professional. Will return to the hotel in the future.

Stayed as part of wedding party, most of whom were put in apartments were there was a strong smell of gas. When this was pointed out there was much to and fro-ing with staff basically saying its was ongoing issue but failing to acknowledge safety implications of this. Alternative accommodation had to be requested and negotiated rather than offered immediately and then was only provided for half of stay due to over booking.
