“home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

I was recently here on a hen Party. I don't have one single complaint. Jackie, the owner, could not have been nicer to us all. Everything was really clean and the food was to die for. When we first received our menu I didn't think it was great but it was absolutely delicious, everybody enjoyed it. The beds were really comfortable, didn't want to get out of them. Donna was a girl that worked in the hotel, she looked after us very well while we were there, she was a little gem and I hope Jackie knows how good she is. Old castle is a lovely little village surrounded by beautiful countryside, we didn't leave the hotel on the night of the hen party, we didn't feel we needed to. Thank you to all the staff at the Fincourt especially Jackie and Donna for making us feel so welcome and giving us a good time.

Room Tip: There is a 4 bedroom house within 2 minutes walk from the hotel where some of us stayed. Perfect for...

The Fincourt earns its #1 rating on Tripadvisor. Our room was clean and comfortable, Jackie was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was tops. The Fincourt is conveniently located in the village, close to restaurants, pubs, and stores.

I spent a fantastic night in The Fincourt, we laughed and danced the night away.
We arrived to a lovely warm welome and Tea and sandwiches, perfect to set us up for our day at Causey Farm.
The rooms were spotless and comfortable, we had a lovely evening in the restaurant where the food and service were beyond fault.
Jackie and all the staff at The Fincourt provide the traditional Irish hospitality that Ireland was once famous for.
I had a really enjoyable girlie night but my husband and I plan to visit during the summer with our young family and include a visit to Causey farm with the children.

Went to this hotel on a hen night, we arrived to a wonderful welcome, and soup and sandwiches tea and coffee, or anything we wanted they did all the work for us. A bus was supplied to take us to Causey Farm for some fun, then back to the hotel to get ready for the night,plenty of hot water, the rooms are very clean and so comfortable. We had our meal in the hotel and it was amazing, we had a lovely night with a dj laid on by the hotel, some of us had to leave early the next morning there was no problem when we asked for breakfast at 8.30am and a lovely fire lighting for us, the breakfast kept me going for the day. Jackie and her staff are fantastic, never met staff like them. I will be back, Thanks Jackie and all your staff.
