Description: Castle Murray prides itself on its dedication and passion to achieving a consistently high quality dining experience. Our Head Chef Remy Dupuy, who has worked in Castle Murray since 1995, is well renowned for using the best of locally sourced produce to create dishes that once enjoyed will have you planning your next trip back to Castle Murray. Our evening dinner menu showcases the passion and talent of Remy and his team while giving the customers a gastronomic experience that is often mimicked but seldom equalled. Great care and attention to detail is given to the design, creation and delivery of each dish on the menu, which reflects the dedication and desire for greatness which motivates Remy and his team. If you haven't already heard about our House Special dish 'Prawn and Monkfish', then it is a must have. A dish so good it should have its own Appreciation Society! The dining room is refined yet comfortable, with a warm and welcoming ambiance that surrounds you once you enter the room. The striking views of St. John's Point and its natural beauty can be enjoyed throughout the dining room. Our restaurant has the added bonus of having a beautiful open fire, which in the winter, when the fire is roaring creates a warm and homely atmosphere that is much sought after on dark winter nights. Through the direction of the General Manager Marguerite Howley and our Maitre d'Hotel Fabrice Costes, a commitment to a professional and personable service is guaranteed to you. Along with our evening dinner menu, we offer a mouth watering 5 course Sunday Lunch that is extremely popular with people far and near. And if that hasn't tempted you 'foodies' out there then we are pleased to tell you that during the summer months we have a gourmet bar lunch menu available and an absurdly delicious and decadent Afternoon Tea service that is sure to tantalise those taste buds.

Amazing setting, terrific views, wonderful hosts and really great breakfast options make this a a great place to stay in Donegal. We are glad that we opted to stay there instead of Donegal Town which is OK for a little shopping and the Castle but Castle Murray House was very special. A nice plus was the “honor bar” a full bar like a small pub onsite where you can just list what you used. A nice benefit if you are settled in for the night and don’t want to go out.

We stayed at Castle Murray in June , it was wonderful. We were informed ahead of time that the restaurant was closed but they still made breakfast . We met a couple who were from England and they told us that we had just missed a special dinner that was cooked for guests only and they raved about how great the food was .
They are thinking of offering dinner again for guests in the future . I hope so ,because we will be going back . If dinner is as good as breakfast it will be 5 star i'm sure . We loved Murray House the location is beautiful overlooking the bay and the rooms and bathrooms are clean & spacious . Margarithe is so very warm & attentive as well as friendly. She explained her family history , she works very hard . Her husband Peter is his name( I think) is a first class chef . He makes a really nice breakfast his pancakes were delicious . I hope we can return next year .

Castle Murray is a very special place. This was our third visit and there are many reasons for our repeat business. The view, atmosphere, food, and owner are all 5 star. You feel at home immediately and there are very few more lovely places in the world that St. Johns Point. You are missing out if you do not select this B&B.

I'm not going to go into too much detail as it was August 2016 I was there. Not the cheapest place on the planet but without doubt the tastiest beef burger I have ever eaten in my life. Nothing flash or over decorative, just simply delicious. Obviously a lot of effort gone into where the meat and fish are sourced as you could taste the difference.
