        Castle Dargan was very comfortable, with good food and very pleasant staff. The room was excellent. General standard was 4 star.

      • Group of friends

        Staff were very helpful. Beds were comfortable and the rooms were spacious. everywhere in the hotel seemed to be clean and well maintained.

        Breakfast was the worst I've ever experienced in over forty years of staying in Irish hotels. No choice. No freshly cooked food. no fresh bread. room brochure a work of fiction. Definitely not four star quality. Don't waste your money by staying here, when a basic, unrated guesthouse down the road can provide much better.

        We chose this hotel for a quiet, relaxing night away. This hotel was perfect for this.

        I enjoyed the whole experince. Myself and my husband were hoping for a quiet relaxing break and that's what we got. The hotel itself is set in beatiful grounds and is maintained immaculately inside and out. Lastly but most importantly the staff were super and this in my opinion makes all the difference, thanks to all of them they made our stay so good. We will be back.

        Staff were very pleasant and helpful

        This was not a luxury experience Utilitarian rooms and a tiny TV in one room of a three room suite!..Looks like they ran out of money

        Beautiful setting. Large rooms. Staff were responsive to the issues mentioned below and adjusted the rate appropriately.

        Multiple little things. Couldn't connect to wifi. (Apple products, they may need to look at this issue) hum from electricity box in room. Reported to them. Poor flow in shower. Spa is extra €10, this is mentioned on website.

        Friendly and efficient staff in bar and dining room. Huge bed. Nice quiet hotel. Room was spotlessly clean. Food in restaurant was good.

        Non smoking room had a strong smell of smoke. We were moved but the room we were moved to also smelled of smoke!!

        The rooms were good and nicely appointed

        The attitude of the staff from reception to bar was not good

        We had a lovely spacious room - the breakfast was great with a very good selection to choose from.

        The bar area could have been a little bit warmer!

        We stayed in a walled garden suite which was fantastic. It was an extremely spacious 2-bedroomed suite with a massive living room area and kitchen. Well worth the extra money to have all that space. You can still use all the facilities in the hotel building yet you feel independent of the hotel also. Despite the 4* rating the menus (both bar and restaurant) were reasonably priced and the Sunday carvery was lovely.

        I think a few extra bits could be provided in the kitchen area, ie bottle opener, cutlery, plates.
