This place has wonderful charm and history! Is grounds are immaculate and the buildings are beautiful, old word charm. The restaurant is very good and the staff there is awesome. My only complaint is the housekeeping staff is a little loud and they slam the doors all day, that's what kept this from being 5 stars, other than that!! Nice...

I stayed here a few years ago so I knew what to expect and I wanted to be in Bishops Castle early on Friday as some friends and I were meeting up in a holiday cottage for the weekend. I felt really comfortable on my own and we all came for aa meal the following evening which was lovely.

We had booked a hotel a few miles outside Bishops Castle, but when we got there they had decided to change our booking from hotel rooms to wooden huts (Glamping) with no toilets or washing facilities. We therefore needed accommodation elsewhere at short notice.(We are aged 67 to 73). We found the Boars Head who were very helpful, and we...
