Memorable Castle Experience!
Posted Jun 12, 2015
My partner and I stayed at Kinnitty Castle Hotel for 1 night and loved it! While many of the castle hotels in Ireland have been updated, Kinnitty provided a genuine castle experience with its decor throughout the castle. We appreciated the canopy bed, dark hardwood and claw foot bathtub in our room. We had dinner in the Sli Dala restaurant and were not disappointed. The Library Bar was also very cool and added to our castle experience. We went on a horse trek through the Slieve Bloom Mountains, which was a lot of fun. Maeve from the Birr Equestrian Centre met us right behind the castle at the stables, which was also convenient. All of the staff at Kinnitty Castle Hotel were friendly and helpful, especially Simon who kindly allowed us to borrow his travel adapter for the evening. Unfortunately, the Dungeon Bar was only open on weekends, so we did not get to experience drinking or eating here, but were able to go downstairs and wander around. It was nice that the castle was not very busy as it added to the eeriness at night. Would definitely return to Kinnitty Castle Hotel!
