I was looking for a hotel for a work trip; I was expecting something functional & generic: Everything about The Castle was excellent: Staff were so friendly & efficient, my room was very comfortable & the shower was super. The biggest surprise was the dinner menu, which was varied and had obviously been set by a chef who really knows food. I ordered a Wagu Beef Steak Sandwich which was prepared to perfection & absolutely delicious. I will definitely stay stay again.

We recently had a wedding of 25 guests at the Castle Hotel. It was absolutely amazing. The staff couldn’t have been more accommodating, especially the wedding planner Kay. She went all out to ensure we had the most magical day! The food was just outstanding. We went with the diamond package and what’s included for the price is fantastic value for money. If you are considering having a wedding here absolutely go for it! I couldn’t say greater things about the hotel, 5 stars isn’t enough! Thanks so much for everything to ye all at the Castle Hotel.

We have just spent a very pleasant overnight here whilst on a business trip to Macroom. We have stayed here on several occasions and have never been disappointed. Covid-19 protocols were excellent and there was plenty of signage along with hand gel everywhere. It really helped make our stay more comfortable as we felt safe. Our room was really big and beautifully decorated, it had an in-room safe and the bathroom was well stocked with fluffy towels and toiletries. The Wi-Fi didn’t work in our room, but that may have been because we were so far from reception. It wasn’t vital anyway, and we were able to manage without it. We had dinner in the bar and were very pleased to see the strict protocols again in place. Our waitress Moya was absolutely charming and looked after us so well. Food was absolutely delicious, we had Chicken Curry and Roast Chicken Fillet for mains, followed by Gingerbread Cake with Apple, and Chocolate Brownie with ice cream. The desserts were very generous so factor that in when ordering your meal! Sleep quality was excellent, not a sound to be heard all night, and an invigorating shower next morning spruced us both up for breakfast. Due to Covid, self-service is no longer available, but that was no problem at all. Our cooked to order breakfast was promptly delivered, and I would highly recommend the breakfast bap – it was to die for, so do try it if you stay here. We love this hotel and highly recommend it. The staff have always been very friendly and it is well worthwhile supporting this family run business. We will definitely be back again.

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. We had our daughter's wedding there over lockdown and they could not have done more for us. The service was excellent. Everyone at reception was friendly and helpful. From the get-go, and at very short notice, they accommodated us in every way. They pulled out all the stops for our wedding party and were extremely helpful when planning the event. The food and drink were top notch. And we could not believe how reasonably priced everything was when it was all over. I'm looking forward to going back when everything opens up again.

We are blessed to be able to get such high quality take away food. Delicious mains from curry to castle burger, the choice is excellent. The finishing touches like warm bean bread and fresh cream and chocolate with delish brownies are but some of the finishing touches that make an order from the Castle truest great. Great food Accompanied by super staff who go out of their way to make your experience truly great , sets the Castle apart.
