My husband, son and I stayed for 3 nights during the October Bank holiday weekend. We had the most amazing time. From the drive into the grounds with the witches hanging out of trees, to the pumpkins everywhere, there was a wonderfully festive ambiance. We'd booked a junior suite and weren't disappointed in the slightest. We ate in the hotel 2 of the nights (one fine dining) and really enjoyed the meals there as well. My husband played golf twice and on one of the days my son (6) and I got a picnic and went for a walk in the grounds. We did go to Fota Wildlife park one of the days as well, but even if we hadn't I think we could have done more exploring the nature trails. On our last night we also did the ghost tour run by the hotel and I must say we were genuinely freaked out a couple of times during it, but the young fella loved it. All in all we really couldn't have asked for more, the only worry is that we'll compare future hotels to it!
