Played this course a few times over the years. It constantly improves. Very fair and rewarding course. Holes 11 to 18 are the best finishing run of holes in the area and a tough test to complete your score.

Dear Merv K,
Your feedback on the Castle Dargan Golf Course is very appreciated by our team and we are delighted to hear you enjoyed your round of golf. Our green keeping Mark Millar will be delighted of how well you thought of the Darren Clarke designed golf course. Our Pro Golfer Xavier has informed me that the course is playing a lot easier the 2nd time round as the players get to know the lines of the tees better . Thank you for your lovely review and we do look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Kind Regards,
Sarah Kearns

Myself and my husband stayed here for a one night July madness deal which was really cheap but I guess you get what you pay for. My husband had a round of golf which he really enjoyed. I went to the spa and had a dry float and a hot stone back massage. I wasn't sure what to expect of the dry float but it was actually really relaxing. My gripe with the spa is the size, the jacuzzi, steam room etc area is tiny and you feel you're on top of everyone else. And the chill out area for the spa, while having views of the golf course is too bright and again you feel you are squashed in. Plus lying in the treatment rooms there's just too much noise you can hear of other people chatting or doors closing. I wouldn't return for the spa plus there is no swimming pool in the hotel which is a shame. The bar and lobby areas are cold and impersonal and there was no life in the bar in the evening. The rooms were clean and decent enough. The highlight was the food, we ate in the main restaurant and the food was lovely, would recommend the sea food chowder for starter. The staff at the hotel were lovely, and we did get a good deal but despite that I wouldn't be rushing back to return to this hotel.

We stayed here in June for the sad occasion of my grandmother's funeral. We stayed in one of the apartments which was perfect. Everything you need for self catering, lots of space and great bed linen and towels etc. The hotel is in a stunning location with views over the local scenery. The view from the bar is gorgeous and a fabulous place to have a drink in the evening. We watched the sunset from the gallery area as deer ambled across the golf course. The staff are really warm and obliging and looked after us so well. They really couldn't have done more. The food is simple home cooked fayre but excellent. Home baked desserts are excellent and the cheesecake is to die for. I will definitely be back here and would recommend it to families and especially for a romantic break!

Atttended a wedding yesterday at Castle Dargan, great hotel as you would expect. At the end of the evening I paid for a round of drinks with a few €10 notes and one €50 note was stuck behind it. The barman immediately noticed what I hadn't and returned it to me. Honest man, and much appreciated, he wasn't looking for a tip, just Honourable. Very impressive at anytime let alone at 11 pm at a function. Sorry I didn't get his name, well done.
