We ate our dinners in the bar, a lovely room with old dark wood as mentioned in other reviews. Dinner and service in...

Thoroughly enjoyable experience and we highly recommend going for a hawk walk. Jason was an excellent guide who explained everything clearly and showed us all the birds and the hunting dogs. We got great hands on experience with the birds and got excellent videos and photos with the birds. Chilli, the hunting dog is super friendly and so obedient. The...

Booked as a last minute treat for my husband and I over the Christmas break. Extremely disappointing. We asked to book a table at the restaurant when we checked in but were told that the restaurant was booked out. There was no mention of this when we booked the room the day before. The only option was to eat in...

Driving up, the estate is beautiful and seems promising. This is a property with a lot of potential, but is understaffed in gross amounts and is not able to accommodate the demands that larger groups place on it. This work load shows across the staff as they are worn out and tired from trying to deliver a smile- garnering experience...

The main building is traditional and beautifully restored yet the staff lack the superior attitude you find in many of these type of grand...

We had a magic weekend at Mount Falcon, celebrating the wedding of our godson and his American bride over a November weekend. The food, service and warmth of the welcome were so good they made us proud to be Irish. We stayed in the cottages complex on the beautifully-maintained estate. The accommodation is high quality - warm, exquisitely finished and...

My husband and i stayed here for several nights while we played golf nearby. Even though it is an imposing estate, the scale of the hotel is warm and cozy. The lobby had a fire going all the time we were there. We had a standard room with a king bed which worked well for us. We took most of...
