“A must see!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We had a great time on this tour and learned a few things we never knew before! The tour guide was excellent and he really made up for the fact that we only visited 7 rooms on the ground floor, we were hoping to go upstairs or see more rooms but it wasnt possible. Great facilities and friendly staff. We hope to go back and do the night time tour some time during the summer

“Great Tour Something Different”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

I thought the tour was excellent made so by the tour guide who was funny and dramatic. I had no idea beforehand the staircase is a sister to the one on the Titanic and despite needing further work is very impressive. Some of the original features one the ground floor like the fireplaces, floor tiles and doors have very little damage and it would be great to see these shown off to their best and to be given more info on the restoration work. Well worth a stop on the way down to Hook Head.

“A definite while in Hook”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The tour was very good and runs on the hour. We got there early after spending some time at Hook lighthouse but enjoyed a panini and snacks in the cafe while we waited for the next tour. The house is impressive and the guides very knowledgeable.

“Well worth a visit. ”

Tour was excellent. Guide was brilliant. The house has an amazing past & you can really see how impressive it must have been in its pomp. Really enjoyed the tour.

“Loftus hall”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

At this moment Loftus Hall is not really worth visiting. The entry fee is too high.The tea room is allright. What I really enjoued were the so called Seisiuns. in the months of July and August, an eving with Irish music and storytelling by ythe Danecasle Music Group. Very entertaining.
I hope there will be futher restaurations in the near future

Thank you for your recently posted review of Loftus Hall on Trip Advisor. We are really pleased you enjoyed the Seisiúns here at Loftus Hall. We agree that they are a great night out - full of Irish Traditional music and storytelling. Having noted that you visited us in July 2013, we are delighted to let you know that the Seisiúns continue on in 2014, and you can attend every Tuesday from 8:30pm here at Loftus Hall. They started on the 1st July, and will continue throughout the summer - but please keep an eye to our website/ social media pages for the very latest information. We were sorry to hear that you felt the cost of our tour was too high. As you can probably tell by some of our other reviews, many of our visitors think that our tour is excellent value, and extremely worthwhile.
