Had the pleasure of dining in your hotel last night & I have to say it was a wonderful experience. We had a sumptuous meal & we were looked after by Liz who greeted us with a smile as soon as we walked in the door & she went out of her way to ensure that our dining experience was...

We had a fantastic experience at this hotel. This is one of the few castle hotels we have encounter that actually feels like its something similar to how you would expect it looked back when it was a noble's residence.

We wanted to pamper ourselves for a night and found Castle Durrow in one of the Manor booklets. The price--$260 Euros—was much more then we normally spent for accommodations, but the price included a beautiful room, full Irish breakfast, and a three-course dinner so in the end it wasn’t that bad. The sitting rooms, dining area, and hallways are sumptuously...

Decided to try Castle Durrow after living in a nearby town for over a year. It was a lovely experience. From the beautiful decór and helpful staff to the calming music playing in the background, Castle Durrow ensures you instantly relax when you take a seat. We ordered from the lunch menu and the portions were so generous, absolutely delicious...

We had a family meal in Castle Durrow's "White Lady Dining Room" at the weekend. From start to finish it was perfect. Decor is beautiful, table settings very smart with crisp white linen. Staff are very friendly and very knowledgeable about Coeliac disease. Great choice on the menu for Coeliacs. Staff couldn't do enough for us. Would definitely recommend and...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! I love family functions, we have a large family ourselves and there is always something to celebrate! Have you seen the new BBQ area ? It's just the best place for more informal get togethers. See you back soon I hope , Shell

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Castle Durrow is located in the heart of the village. A fully restored, magnificent 300 year old Mansion with luxurious bedrooms each with their own atmosphere. Our restaurant is located in stunning south-facing rooms, decorated with mirrors and hand blocked wallpaper, our head chef creates delicious seasonal menus, popular with visitors and locals alike. We are a terrific place to relax and let romance and Guinness de-stress the mind and body in our cosy bar and reception rooms. In the Magnificent garden, with fabulous scented borders and a walled garden, from where our chefs pick their daily produce, you can stroll around for hours or have a more vigorous walk by the river and in the hills adjoining the castle. A stay at the castle with Dinner and some romance would not be complete without a beauty treatment in our salon , aptly named the Powder box ! ... more   less
