It's simple amazing the impact that you have when you arrive at this unbelievable Hotel. It's literally a Castle built in 1024! Since the first step into the Lobby, you are thrown back with Armour and a lot of things coming for the Past. Rooms are nice and really well designed and the fournishing are so well placed.

This was a main highlight for our trip across Ireland, and the property did not disappoint. Amazing room setup and amenities, along with excellent customer service. We didn't have a problem finding the location, and were able to confirm our room type on arrival. Also close to the bus line downtown.

The Castle is beautiful, staff courteous and friendly, but the gym. Ech! When will it get update from 1985? The castle is convenient to where relations are otherwise I would stay somewhere just as nice but with a much better gym. Plenty of good options out there.
