Will be definitely coming back. All round fantastic from food, to room and staff. The grounds are beautiful
August 2021
I am not sure my words are enough to do justice to the incredible weekend myself and my partner had at Castlemartyr. Every meal from breakfast, to Afternoon Tea to the incredible dinner in the Bell Tower was amazing. We booked a private Serenity Suite and couples massage in the Spa. At the end of it both of us left floating on a cloud of bubbles. The only thing better than the resort is the staff who make the experience all come together. In particular our Concierge Gerald who went above and beyond to deliver a truly 5 star service. Is Castlemartyr expensive, absolutely. The amazing memories we have from our weekend though, are absolutely priceless.

Highly Recommended
Really enjoyed our two night stay here in December. Hotel and grounds are beautiful. Large room with huge ornately furnished bathroom. Very comfortable bed.
We had dinner in the Bell Tower restaurant on one night. Really enjoyed our meal in a relaxing setting with live piano.
Breakfast was fantastic. Large selection of very high quality food.
Lovely bright pool area.
Hotel was spotlessly clean and we had no fears in relation to Covid - 19. The management clearly have an effective policy in place.
All staff were exceptionally courteous and helpful.
We will definitely visit again.

I had an amazing trip to Castlemartyr right before Lockdown level 5. The staff were so helpful, friendly and made us feel at ease despite the restrictions. I got a full body massage and facial in the Spa and Yvonne was brilliant, very informative and a relaxed environment. I ate in both the bar and Bell Tower. I would recommend the Bell Tower, the beef was cooked to perfection. Bar had a lovely atmosphere.

"Absolutely fantastic from start to finish"
Was greeted by a lovely hand-written note from the general manager welcoming my wife and I on our honeymoon, accompanied by prosecco and chocolate-covered strawberries. The suite itself was fantastic - tons of room and a delightful level of luxury. The bathroom was the real highlight, with a fantastic standalone shower and an impressive chandelier, all surrounded by white Italian marble.

The staff were courteous and pleasant, and the grounds were a pleasure to walk through. I only wished that there were more fireplaces (we found one, a small one tucked away in the Knight's Bar). There is also a lack of a shuttle anywhere, and getting to and from the place can be challenging and pricey. Overall though, it's a magnificent place to visit!

"Another fantastic break away"
We had another great stay at this fabulous hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much to ask for. Food was delicious and there was a great choice available.
We are looking forward to the next time we can visit.

Fabulous stay
Stayed here with my Mam for the bank holiday weekend.

We couldnt compliment the staff enough. Especially the lovely Gerald who couldnt do enought for us.

Room was spotless, warm and cosy and had that home away from home feeling.

We are already counting the days until we come back!

Thanks again for a great time

Lovely Experience from Start to Finish
We are a family of five adults and stayed in a three bedroom on the resort. It was clean, comfy and loved the amenities in the kitchen. It’s an easy walk to the main house and to the tiny village of Castlemartyr for groceries. Don’t miss having tea in the stunning dining room and a glass of bubbly or whisky in the Templar Bar!
