Thank you for your recent visit to The Castle Hotel Macroom. And thank you very much for providing us with your feedback. We are so disappointed that your visit did not meet your expectations. The experience you have described is very far from the standards we strive for and indeed the awards we are renowned for. I would like to take this opportunity to apologise most sincerely for this very unsatisfactory meal. As you may know we were awarded The Irish Hotel Carvery of The Year in 2018, so we are absolutely stunned to read your alarming report. We take great pride in the fact that all of our beef is guaranteed Irish and specially sourced from local craft butchers. We are very thankful for all the feedback received and will carry out an investigation into our supply chain. We will do our very best to ensure this is not a repeat incident. I realise you are very disappointed with your visit but I would like to urge you to make a re-visit in the future and I can assure you of the true Castle Hotel Carvery Experience.

Thank you for your question. We have had very few if any complaints regarding noise. However, if you wish, please do email me prior to your arrival date, and I will ensure you have a bedroom allocated to the rear of the hotel, away from any traffic sounds. We operate a 24 hour cancellation policy. Regards, Rachael, Sales & Marketing.

This hotel is located in the middle of the town on the main street.Our room was far enough away that no traffic was loud enough to wake us up.I think it was a side view room,we could barely see the castle but not that noisy.
