Stayed here for a wedding on 30 September 2016. Upon reaching the estate I was blown away. The grounds are gorgeous with a lovely drive up the castle, which in itself was amazing. It feels like a trip back in time but with modern luxury. The staff were friendly and checked us in quickly. The room we stayed in was... More

If you want pretty, pretty modern place, this is NOT it. This is original castle from floors to furniture that have been refurbished and painted. Limited guest, old style hallways, no lift and great old, old, old tapestries and paintings. This is an authentic castle that has been redone in old style. Not super clean as old castles weren't but... More

As many reviewers have said the place is in need of a great deal of refurbishment - which I was advised would start in January. Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay here - Our room was huge as was the bathroom - the furniture is in keeping with the venue and the beds clean and comfortable. If you start looking closely... More

Had lunch here with some friends recently whilst visiting Kinnitty for a night. What a super surprise to find this magnificent building. Real old world. The food was delicious and the setting just made it all. Highly recommend.

What a beautiful building! My room was large and had a big bathroom. The grounds are stunning. I had no idea they had so many amenities until it was too late for me to book so make sure to find out about these when you book. I did have an issue finding the place but it was my fault for... More

My husband and I stayed one night for a castle experience. It was quite enjoyable. Do watch out for the stones when driving in. They are easy to miss. We hit one to avoid a pot hole in the road going up to the castle and got a flat tire. So that put a damper on our visit and I... More

We spent one night here in early September, a nice layover between Kilkenny and Galway. The hotel itself was impressive and the service was stellar. Although technically, I think it might be a stretch to call it a "castle", as the present incarnation I believe is like 1920s, but it was elegant and fun nonetheless. The rooms are huge, and...

We really enjoyed our night in an actual castle. The service was excellent, food amazing and the castle its self was really cool. The woman at the front desk was so helpful, I wish I knew her name. Definitely recommend and would stay there again!

We loved it here. All of us had a great time. The Decor is very authentic and not at all try to hard. Quite basic in a lot of ways but the ambiance is lovely. Plenty of nooks and crannies and twists and turns inside which is brilliant. The grounds are very nice very relaxed and not perfect but lends... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kinnitty Castle, is close to the picturesque village of Kinnitty, Co. Offaly set beautifully against a backdrop of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. The Castle has a long and turbulent history. Dating originally from 1209, Kinnitty was destroyed and rebuilt not once but twice and yet it retains character and oozes charm. Kinnity is in a great location only 90 minutes from Dublin and is a great stop off point for journeys west or southwards. It is an exceptional place for lovers of good food and the great outdoors. ... more   less

“Ask for a room with a view at the front of the castle so you won't overlook overgrowth at the back”
