“Wonderful Hotel”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

My husband and i spent 2 nights in the wonderful Castle Hotel in Macroom, What makes the Castle such a wonderful success is their staff, Their staff have to be the nicest and hard work staff that any hotel has employed. From reception to the coffee shop to the restaurant, to the cleaning staff and leisure centre, you all deserve employee of the month. the food is highly impressive, rooms are clean to a high standard, very relaxed hotel. We would love to return

The castle hotel is right in the centre of Macroom town & is convienent to everything Macroom has to offer the visitor. The hotel is a mix of old style layout with modern interier design in the bedrooms. The room i had was bright, spotless and well equiped with modern flat screen tv, kettle & tea, coffee etc. iron & ironing board. The staff were extremly friendly, kind & helpfull. The breakfast was exceptional, the buffet style first part had everything possible on offer, home made brown bread, home made muffins, even a selection of celiac products and then your grill order taken and delivered to your table. The food in the bar is full restaurant quality and superb, besides the meat etc the barbecue sauce for the buffalo wings or the pickled cucumber are exceptional. All in all I would recomend this hotel to anyone and I will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter but the wifi is slightly weaker

My wife and I have just spent a week at the Castle Hotel, we last visited Ireland 44 years ago, and what a delightful stay we have had there. The staff, starting with Trish, Kay, Lynn and Kathryn in reception, to Meg, Karen and Kevin in the restaurant, and the rest of the staff, sorry I can't mention all of you, but you should all be proud of yourselves for being so friendly and helpful, a terrific advert, not only for the hotel, but for Ireland as a whole. The food was great, both in the hotel and at Dan Buckleys Bar, which is part of the hotel next door. Mr Buckley, co-owner of the hotel introduced himself to us, which was most polite, as were the staff. All in all great hotel, great staff, which made it all for a great time for us, well done. The only drawback was that at the end of the stay, we had to pay!!! but what value it was. Ken and Monica Clarke.

Stayed in the hotel recently, it was excellent and very relaxing. Staff are more than helpful to help with every thing.They are very friendly and involve the children when talking to the adults which is a nice change!! Cookies and tea on arrival went down a great treat with the kids too!! Rooms were very clean, restaurant and bar very clean. Food was great and not too expensive. From front of house to the bar, restaurant and housekeepers all were friendly. Breakfeast was lovely each morning and no waiting for a seat which was great with hungry kids.
Swimming pool was great..nice temp in water and great for the children too-was never over crowded. Play room available for children also but parents must supervise which suited us.
Great hotel and I would recommend it to any family as a relaxing break away and money well spent.
Well done castle hotel and leisure centre!

My husband, daughter and I stayed here four nights beginning on the 26th of July, 2013 as part of a larger "Gathering" Conference Group. We were so pleased with our family room, it's cleanliness and comfort and quiet. The Hotel has a great parking area. The food was fabulous as was the service in the restaurants and bar. Being that we were at the Hotel for an event we were able to see first hand the excellence of the event staff and how hard they worked to make our experience seamless. The Conference/Banquet room was perfect for the needs of our group. The friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff at this hotel is a memory that will stay in our hearts for years to come.
