On romantic weekend away with my wife, expected high quality of service. Didn't get it on check in. Male manager 2 minutes into serving us, answered the hotel phone, then left us standing there ignoring us for 3-4 minutes until a kind waitress passing by got us our key and showed us to our room. The room was in castle...

I deliberately waited a week before doing this review because I had such mixed feelings about it. The food was absolutely fantastic, the service from both a meal and bar perspective was excellent and the ambience of the library and the bar downstairs was really very nice. A great place to sit and have a few pints and chat. Having...

We had an overnight stay and could not fault Kinnitty. We travelled with our two little girls and we weren't sure they would be amused. But they were absolutely enthralled and were made to feel like princesses by the wonderful staff. We had a beautiful four poster bed and yes there is a little dust and a few cobwebs but...

They should tell you up front this is not really a castle, but more of a manor house rebuilt in the 1920s. I would not have booked otherwise for this price. The bed showed springs through mattress and we had to sleep on top of duvet for comfort. Also, was scalded in the shower when it changed temps from warm...

Kinnitty Castle Hotel is steeped in rich atmospheric bliss.

I loved this hotel, it has so much character! It is absolutely an old castle which obviously also means that everything in it is old e.g.floor boards, so don't expect modern standard. I was here with a hen party and we had a great time, the staff couldn't have been kinder and more attentive and the food was just fantastic....

Nice place. We stayed on a Friday night, so there was a large wedding party there for a wedding the next day. But in spite of this, it seemed like we had the place to ourselves. We hiked around the grounds a bit...and this was nice. It wasn't the cleanest place that I have stayed, but it also wasn't horrible....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kinnitty Castle, is close to the picturesque village of Kinnitty, Co. Offaly set beautifully against a backdrop of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. The Castle has a long and turbulent history. Dating originally from 1209, Kinnitty was destroyed and rebuilt not once but twice and yet it retains character and oozes charm. Kinnity is in a great location only 90 minutes from Dublin and is a great stop off point for journeys west or southwards. It is an exceptional place for lovers of good food and the great outdoors. ... more   less
