Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2013 via mobile

We visited this hotel in January and because it was so good we came back this month.
When we arrived we received a lovely welcome and got upgraded to a suite which was beautiful. The first time this has ever happened to us.
The evening meal was first class and the service was very good.
Breakfast was great.
This hotel is so so clean and I am very fussy.
Will definitely come back for a third time.

Although this hotel is in a small town it beats some major city hotels for service and comfort. The staff are cheerful, helpful and make you feel welcome from the minute you arrive. The food is excellent and the service 5 star. With the added bonus of a pool and on site free parking its a hidden treasure that's worth travelling for.

We had a great stay at the Castle Hotel, over Easter.It was our second trip to Macroom. From check in with Kay, who is still so helpful and cheerful. she managed to arrange our day trips again to different attractions (the kids really enjoyed the crazy golf in Killarney.) The food was as good as ever. The bedroom was comfortable & cosy. The kids keep asking when we can go back to the"hotel" & pool. Hopefully next year!!!!!keep up the goodwork

Would never have thought to visit Macroom for a weekend break, but as faith would have it a friend pointed us in this direction. Location is right on the Main street. Staff are exceptional. The most plesant and friendly staff i have encountered in a long time. We had a family room - perfect. 2 adults and 2 children can comfortably relax with eveything at their fingertips. Parkibg to the rear. Coffee shop and bar all within the hotel. We also used the swimming pool which was well worth a visit. Would recommend a stay at this hidden gem in Macroom.

We returned recently to this wonderful hotel hoping it was still as good as we remembered, and it was. It is quite a way out of Cork in the small town of Macroom but well worth a visit. The hotel frontage is on the main street and doesn't look that big but it's a tardis inside. It has it's own leisure centre at the back of the premises and a coffee shop at the front which was always packed with locals & guests alike. The staff are quite wonderful, nothing is too much trouble and if you can get the 200 euro package for 2 nights it's a wonder they make any money! We had the package with a free dinner with wine and you could choose from the main menu - 3 delicious courses plus a bottle of wine between 2 people. If you are anywhere in the area - go check it out, you won't be disappointed.

My new husband and I have just returned from 7 days in Macroom in the lead up to our Wedding Day at Gougane Barra. From the moment we made an enquiry for holding our wedding reception at the Castle Hotel until we left to return home, Vicki, Eileen and the team made every effort to ensure our special day was a perfect day to remember. Their hospitality and attention to detail is faultless. We do not know what we would have done without their care and support. The food and service they provided us and our guest was of the highest standards. All of our guests bar none had nothing but positive words to say on the service they received and the care the staff had put into our day. We have made many new friends amongst the team and will undoubtably be returning on our 1st anniversary next year - for which we cannot wait. I would recommend the Castle in a heart beat, whether for a weekend away or a special occasion. Every moment we have spent at this hotel has been an absolute pleasure. We are eternally grateful for all their hard work. Thank you so much. Ben and Sarah Jane Smith x

Room Tip: Every room is a treat... We have seen them all...!!! Chose this hotel and you will get a good room.
