Had a family meal, service was top notch from the start staff were friendly and welcoming enjoyed practicing my Spanish and French and got the opportunity to order with the waitress who was multilingual. The food was absolutely superb and can’t wait to return in the very near future.

A group of friends and I booked here for the weekend of the 29/10/21. John, Fionnuala and all the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful, the bedrooms are immaculately clean and very comfortable. The extra joy of a late breakfast served up to noon at the weekend was of great comfort to all the group as we were enjoying the local pubs in Castlewellan on the Friday night. We all had a late Sunday meal at the Kings Inn and the food could not be faulted, great food at a great price. And lastly a massive thank you to Fionnuala and John for liaising with my friends to host my 50th Birthday party at the Kings Inn. We all had a wonderful weekend.

We where out for a drive and enjoying the beautiful Northern Irish weather and finding it difficult to find somewhere to get food, everywhere was extremely busy! Driving through Castlewellan we decided to stop and try our luck at the Kings Inn. Although the hotel was busy but we got an outside table and finished our evening with good food and friendly service. The table service from Fionnula was excellent and she has a lovely friendly manner as has John and very helpful. Although both were very busy they made us feel welcomed and are excellent at their job. I don't know the chef's name but his/her food was excellent, really enjoy it! I would definitely recommend the Kings Inn on this visit and consider an overnight stay, many thanks, 'G & Jim'

Went to Kings Inn Castlewellan for dinner on Sunday 6th September. Sat outside as weather was gorgeous. Service great and very quick. Food was delicious and stayed hot due to plates being heated properly. Could not fault staff service or quality of meal. Would definitely go back. 5 stars at least.
