"Lovely. Grand. Brilliant"
Hard to overstate the amount of fun you can have with 22 best friends and family members, an amazing setting (the castle), 2 kegs of Guinness in the pub and perfect Irish summer weather. Every single aspect of our trip worked 100% and Springfield Castle was just a magic place for us. The old part of the building is appropriately musty and grand, the Tower is newly updated and modern, their cuisine (breakfast, lunch and dinners) was incredible, the 2 game rooms kept the younger crowd entertained (pool, pingpong, foosball), the grounds were lush and quiet and picturesque. 2 deer herds onsite - we had their local venison for dinner and even the vegetarians raved. Dan (chef), Karen, Jonathan and Betty were wonderful hosts. And where else can you get a personal guided tour by the Lord of the manor, himself in bathing suit and flipflops? Have Dan cook his 3-day marinated lamb on the asado grill and be sure to order his seafood pie. The 2 best meals of the week. I could go on forever. It's a special place our group will always remember.
