Waitress was very warm and friendly and promptly took our order for drinks and delivered another menu to cover our entire party.The tap water arrived ice cold and refreshingly good as tap water goes!

The Castle Hotel in Macroom is the best accommodation available in this small town close to Cork, Ireland. Rooms are ok in terms of size, offer necessary amenities and are clean. There is an excellent breakfast. Staff are very attentive and friendly. There is a restaurant with a good selection of dishes. Can be quite busy at times. Recommendable.

Stayed two nights in the Castle Hotel for a family event. The staff were so friendly and helpful and sensitive to the occassion, we were all very impressed. The hotel is very central, and has a wonderful atmosphere. The rooms were very nice, clean and reasonably priced. They have a lovely breakfast buffet and grill.

We stopped there on our for a coffee and dessert. The coffee was alright but the desserts were very disappointing. The salted caramel cake tasted like a blended can of salted peanuts. We will definitely not visit it again.

What a surprisingly lovely hotel. Exceptional friendly staff who go to every effort to ensure a satisfied customer. Had a massage on arrival and they were so obliging with travel time etc. Leisure centre is a little dated but we will definitely go back.

Great service and good pints of beer. Everything was served with excellence. Nice head on each beer and what else could you ask for. Clean and the washrooms were nice. People's food looked great as well but never got to try any of it.
