Castle Durrow is situated in the small town of Durrow in Co. Laois, about a 90 minute drive away from Dublin. The hotel itself sits in extensive well-manicured grounds, and there are some very beautiful gardens to the rear of the hotel. Our room was very generously sized, and has a very comfortable king-sized 4-post bed. Over the August Bank Holiday weekend the hotel staff was very busy hosting 4 different weddings (Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday), and yet the service was excellent and professional, and the food very good.
