We stayed two nights midweek in the 300 year old Castle Grove Country House Hotel in Donegal. The room was spacious and so comfortable. As the hotel is set on its own grounds, the silence was golden... best nights sleep in ages. When it came to dinner, the service was highly professional and the food 'to live for'.. superb. Maybe not the cheapest in town but certainly hard to beat and represented great value combined with a most memorable experience. We'll be back there for sure. Also worth mentioning, it is ideally located as a base for exploring that part of Donegal or Derry.

One of the few privately-owned manor houses left, it is obviously well-loved and cared for. We had a suite, which was two huge rooms, with period furnishings. The common rooms were lovely. It does show it's age, but that doesn't detract from a lovely stay. The restaurant serves a very good dinner, too.

We have been here before and it never fails to live up to expectations. From the warm welcome as our party of seven arrived, to the seat in the drawing room around a cosy fire and then into the dining room for an exceptional meal, everything was perfect. The staff could not be more friendly or professional. A wonderful special family birthday dinner.

We stayed here for an impromptu getaway, everywhere I had intended to book was unavailable and I had a blue book voucher, so I found Castle Grove on the blue book website. I booked the superior double room with lake view and from the minute we arrived, we were quietly stunned. Castle Grove is testament to Irene Sweeney’s expertise in making hospitality feel natural, and in this 17th century house (with Capability Brown designed grounds no less!) we felt right at home. We were greeted with tea and biscuits (complimentary) in front of a blazing fire and our room had one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. We had a really pleasant breakfast, a stunning dinner and an incredibly relaxing night of drinks in front of another well-stocked fire. The personal, intimate touch is what makes Castle Grove a completely unique experience and it has a charm that is sadly disappearing from many places to stay in Ireland. I can’t wait to book another stay; Castle Grove is a gem that we just discovered!

Myself and my friend had a lovely relaxing evening/night at this beautiful country home. The diner was so tasty with local products. High quality bedding and cosy stylish room holding the period of the house. Would highly recommend others to stop off that this private country home.

On arrival seated in a small cold bar, dinning room was cold and dark, couldn’t see my food hardly. Sirloin of beef was undercooked and unable to enjoy the meal. Vegetables was not cooked, clearly understaffed and staff that was there was very pleasant and helpful, but overall experience was poor

Dear Guest Thank you for choosing Castle Grove for this special occasion, we had a look through our records for the dates in questions and only found one group here celebrating a 60th however I don't think it was your party as they sat in the drawing rooms by the fire both before and after dinner and on check out were very happy with their whole experience. The house was fully booked with fires going all weekend so I am not sure how the place could have been cold , in particular the bar is the old breakfast room in the hub of the house. I do apologise if your meat was undercooked, unfortunately I cannot do anything at this time as I am unsure who you are , if you would like to contact me directly on 074 91 51118 to discuss I would be more than happy to review the evening and compensate you. Kind regards Karoline

My husband and I visited Castle Grove Country House Hotel for one night on the 10th of February. As soon as we entered the lobby we received a very warm Donegal welcome from Caroline. We instantly felt very much at home. There were lovely open log fires in the drawing room and dining room and complimentary tea and home made biscuits to welcome us. The bedroom was so comfortable and warm and the bathroom was absolutely spotless. We had dinner included which was served by Eileen and breakfast served by Irene both of whom couldn't have been more helpful. The food was delicious. We would highly recommend a visit to this lovely country house

We had Sunday lunch here and it was excellent. I had beef which was cooked to perfection. The service was exceptional, welcoming, friendly and professional. We were a party of four and everyone is of the same opinion. Even the piped music was perfect.
