We were married here a few years back, spent a lot of money, and had a great time. We were due back for an anniversary stay which was included in our wedding package. We returned to be treated totally differently from when we forked out for our wedding. We were put in an external building that was removed from the glitz of the main house. We immediately noticed that other people staying in the external building didn't seem like typical hotel guests. There were people drinking cans in the yard, shouting and screaming, people going in and out smoking, and teens causing major problems. I asked the hotel was their people living in this building? but they assured me they were guests. After a night of very little sleep and a complaint to the front desk about people knocking on the doors and walls until very late waking up our baby, the staff continued to lie to me and my family and ignore our concerns. We were going to leave and not bother with the second night but the manager on duty convinced us she would sort something. In the meantime, other staff members confirmed to me that the hotel was in fact housing people for the state in the external building we were put into, but anyone official continued to lie. Eventually, I had enough, I made my feelings clear and they came clean about the hotel housing people, and who had been causing trouble. We left, never so happy to be going home. We were promised that a manager would follow up with us but I have rung twice to remind them I am waiting on an explanation for the treatment, to date I have heard nothing and the stay was 6 weeks ago. They don't care. I left thinking "Faulty Towers" and ironically I see others have the same description. It was once a lovely place, well run, and honest staff. Not now, stay away. They don't respect you unless you are planning on spending a huge wedge of cash before a party or wedding, after that.. you are just dirt. This is my experience to date. If they ever do bother to take time to explain to me why my family were treated like this I will update below.
Faulty Towers style lunch
Reviewed 21 november, 2021
We dined in the main restaurant at lunchtime 19 November. The atmosphere and surroundings were. nice, but the quality of the main course and the level of service were straight out of Faulty Towers--in my opinion. Not to mention that the food was overpriced for the "canteen style" of main course produced. I chose Hake, but received an oversized plate of tomatoes and beans- topped with a tiny square ( starter portion) of Hake. There was insufficient staff on duty to give a professional service in the busy main restaurant-- although the 2 waitresses on duty did their best, given that there should have been at least three more on duty, plus a manager.. Perhaps my expectations where excessive. I was looking forward to a five star gourmet meal; but received a two star canteen dinner--excessively priced in my view. Definitely won't be back!

We were passing nearby and looking for a good breakfast last Sunday morning and this cake up as a recommendation. What a little gem. I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t known about this sanctuary so close to Dublin. Beautiful grounds including a group of roving peacocks. We had a delicious breakfast with great service. We will definitely be back again and try to include an ever night stay and dinner .

Fabulous hotel. Lovely avenur to drive up to hotel. Reception was good for checkin. Quick and efficient. Nice bar, staff were friendly. The hotel didnt do bar food and we were advised to go to the restaurant for food. Hoards of people in for afternoon tea. Really comfortable rooms, tv selection of channels was very poor, but thats a minor complaint.
Wonderful Family Lunch Celebration
Reviewed 15 september, 2021
We recently celebrated our children's First Holy Communion in the fabulous Finnstown Castle Hotel. We hired The Olympic Room for our party and it was perfect for our celebration. The room was beautifully laid out with welcome sign at the door (all Covid-19 restrictions adhered to). The majority dined on The Kilmore Quay Smoked Salmon & Prawn Chipotle Mayonnaise & Fresh Herb Salad, which was deemed delicious. I enjoyed The Seasonal Garden Vegetable Soup with crusty bread. Our waitress was very efficient and extra staff were on hand when required to serve the main courses. Oven Baked Fillet of Hake was tasty with the Braised Feather Blade of Beef being the highlight dish, absolutely mouthwatering. For dessert, we tasted Fresh Fruit Pavlova and Petit Choux Buns. There was no tea/coffee written on the bottom of the menu so most guests did not partake even though it was actually included in the meal. Overall, we had a very enjoyable, tasty and filling lunch. It was a wonderful celebration with fabulous photos to match taken in the manicured gardens and grounds.
