A family wedding held at Cabra Castle ran smoothly with comfort and ease. Nothing was too hard for the staff who always greeted us with a smile and a hello. The food was fantastic at the wedding and then the bar food was just as good. Great experience. I'll be back.

They accommodated our every need and made us feel so calm and relaxed throughout the whole day. Everyone commented on how professional and kind the staff were. Our guests are still commenting on how nice the food was and the... More

Went for a short break with partner. Loved the resident dog. Room was ok, located in the courtyard. Downstairs so had to close curtains to prevent other guests seeing in and could hear guests upstairs move around. Excellent service from staff, evening meal fantastic, recommend everyone to try - particularly lamb or beef. Best part of stay! Breakfast next morning... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights this past week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It truly is an impressive castle with a number of common rooms showcasing beautiful period furniture, china, photos and lots of artwork. Rumor has it that it is haunted in the courtyard area of the castle, by the ghost of Sarah, who was brutally... More

Cabra is an amazingly authentic looking property about an hour and 20 Minutes from Dublin. The building itself is wonderful, with beautiful spaces for dining, drinking and sleeping. The two sweet Irish wolfhounds outside don't hurt either. Our courtyard garden room (new construction in the old courtyard area of the castle) was nicely appointed though there were a few cheesy...

Thank you for your review of Cabra castle. I'm glad you found your room to be comfortable and well appointed. I am disappointed with your review of our bar food and service as in general the comments are quite good. It is sometimes hard to predict a busy day/evening and therefore staff can be busier than usual or anticipated. I... More
