Had a really great meal in an ambience of a period country house that welcomes you in settles you by the fire and slows the hectic in your day. Great service in a quiet night in the restaurant left us mellow and smiling and wanting to return.

A very quirky old hotel with lots of very quaint rooms to relax in. The rooms are furnished in traditional style, ours was full of period pieces and perhaps cluttered. Our hot water was not functioning and we were quickly allocated a new room. However the settings were still not right, Luke warm but we survived. Breakfasts were very good... More

The Castle Grove House is exactly the type of place I was hoping to find while traveling thru Ireland. A beautiful country house with a very welcoming hostess....and at a very reasonable price. Our room was large and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was very good.

We stayed at the Castle Grove Country House Hotel last Sunday night as we travel/toured through Ireland. We had an absolutely beautiful experience at the Castle Grove, from the warm welcome at reception to the high-end dinner experience that night. The personable service was the most complete that we experienced in our entire time in Ireland, and it was memorable... More

There are some places you go and want to stay for much longer than you originally thought. This is one of those places. Charming, attentive staff that serve with a sense of occasion and aplomb. Tempered with a wry Donegal irony. Actually, just go there and unwind in coils.

We recently stayed here (1 night) as part of our tour of the Wild Atlantic Way. The overall ambience and feel for the location is superb, and great appreciation has been shown for this period home. Certain facilities were lacking though and rooms/corridors would need a little uplift (carpets/artificial flowers on landing etc.). We also did not have a telephone... More
