Booked a family suite in this converted country mansion which was built in the early 18th century. It is situated in rolling countryside with pleasant views and well kept gardens. Staff were attentive and friendly at all times and nothing was too much trouble. Accommodation was luxurious in a traditional manner which might not suit those used to the modern glass and concrete establishments but was ideal for the wedding party we attended. The wedding meal was very good and we particularily enjoyed the " Irish " breakfast. We would happily stay there again.

Room Tip: Get a room in the main house rather than the outer buildings

Thank you so much for your review,
It was particularly helpful to me as I can explain the differences in the rooms !
There are 24 rooms in the main house, These rooms are occupied by our wedding guests as well as our Dinner Bed and Breakfast guests. Then we have the rooms in the Rose Courtyard, the Garden Rooms and the Stable Yard rooms, These rooms are mostly used by our wedding guests, They are outside the main building and this reflects in their pricing. We do find that in the summer a lot of our Diner Bed and Breakfast guests ask for the Courtyard rooms because they are situated in the fragrant Rose garden and overlooking the walled Garden.
I hope that we can welcome you again soon.
Kindest Regards, Shelly

My husband and I stayed here for our 20th anniversary. The service was wonderful, the castle grounds and gardens were beautiful...but the food was absolutely top notch. Creative, innovative, and really tasty! We had both dinner that evening and breakfast the next morning. I have to say that the breakfast was the best hotel breakfast I have ever had. Again...creative, innovative, and the taste was great. We will definitely be staying here again. And again!

I spent two days here with my family for my sister's wedding and everything about it was perfect. The hotel itself is beautiful. Everything you could possibly need has been catered for. The rooms are incredible the food is amazing and the whole atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable. We were there with children (5 and 2 yrs) and at no point did we feel that the children were in the way or causing any inconvenience. They enjoyed running along the corridors, chasing the resident cats and playing football in the beautiful grounds which were so extensive and no one was disturbed. The in house playroom was also much enjoyed.

The two things that really impressed us about this hotel were the amazing breakfasts, so much fresh and tasty produce, and the staff. The staff were invisible when not directly needed but there instantly when you did need them. Everything ran like clockwork and appeared so effortless, real art.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough. I hVe never been anywhere like it, in summary it was comfort and class in perfect measures.

Room Tip: Family rooms offer parents the comfort of a separate room for children within the main room. Perfect. All the rooms we saw that were occupied by family were all superb.

Dear Alex000000,
Thank you so much for your review.
I am real pleased to read that your kids enjoyed their time at the Castle and that you felt that they were welcome, because they were!
We have 4 girls ourselves , so I know what it is like to travel with kids. I want mine to stay with me, but not actually In the room, but real close by. I also like a nicely decorated room when I am away and not a nursery room!! So that is why I designed the family rooms. Parents are people as well !!!
I hope we will be able to welcome you again,
Kindest Regards,
Shelly

I love this place. The food has always been fab, it doesn't matter if u are at a wedding or eating in the restaurant, the beef is always perfect. Love getting away here with a few friends, the staff are exceptional, the rooms in the main house are amazing.

dear Kieran K,
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of the castle.
I love my food and I love my beef.
We are lucky with all the suppliers that we have for our food, a lot of them are local businesses.
I think as well that , although the castle is such an amazingly grand building, the atmosphere is really relaxed and it is a great place to go to with some friends to relax , exercise yourself a little by walking in the gardens and have a few laughs in the bar .
Kindest Regards,
Shelly

Recently had the pleasure of attending a friends wedding at Castle Durrow - highly recommended.
The building itself is beautiful, with a lot of the original features & artwork still taking pride of place. The grounds are lovely, with an extensive garden & working stables onsite - definitely a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. One of the most notable elements of our stay was the staff - they couldn't have done any more for us. We only had an overnight stay, but we'll definitely be back.
