We went here on a one night bed, breakfast and evening meal voucher and had chosen a baronial room. When we went into the room we found it too gloomy and dark on a bright summer day so asked if they had anything else. We moved to the Thomas Winter room which was much bigger and brighter for an extra...

Not July 2014 as stated but it doesn't go back that far. As a student and lover of history, excitement at the opportunity to stay at a castle is a bit of an understatement. Kinnitty was to be my first for a 2 day stay. The location was superb and the castle itself, but the staff seemed very unhappy in...

On romantic weekend away with my wife, expected high quality of service. Didn't get it on check in.

I deliberately waited a week before doing this review because I had such mixed feelings about it. The food was absolutely fantastic, the service from both a meal and bar perspective was excellent and the ambience of the library and the bar downstairs was really very nice. A great place to sit and have a few pints and chat. Having...

They should tell you up front this is not really a castle, but more of a manor house rebuilt in the 1920s. I would not have booked otherwise for this price. The bed showed springs through mattress and we had to sleep on top of duvet for comfort. Also, was scalded in the shower when it changed temps from warm...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kinnitty Castle, is close to the picturesque village of Kinnitty, Co. Offaly set beautifully against a backdrop of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. The Castle has a long and turbulent history. Dating originally from 1209, Kinnitty was destroyed and rebuilt not once but twice and yet it retains character and oozes charm. Kinnity is in a great location only 90 minutes from Dublin and is a great stop off point for journeys west or southwards. It is an exceptional place for lovers of good food and the great outdoors. ... more   less
