Dining at Castle Durrow Hotel

Castle Durrow Restaurant

Castle Durrow’s Restaurant in County Laois overlooks the magnificent gardens, is relaxed and very informal. It is open to non residents and reservations are recommended.

Modern Country House cooking is the style of cuisine in this Country House Hotel, located in Laois, Ireland. Experience culinary excellence as we serve inspired regional and international favourites which are prepared from the finest local produce with herbs & vegetables from our own kitchen garden and complemented by our carefully selected wines.

Our Buffet Breakfast of fruits, cereals, smoked meats & fish, together with the now famous tower cooked breakfast is a great way to start your day in the country.

Our menu changes every week and offers specials of locally sourced game and fish (in season) or meats. Our wine list is made up from the most popular regions of France & the ‘New World’ and like our Bar prices, are sensibly priced.

The main dining room is considered one of the finest in this Manor House Hotel with its spectacular views and comfortable furnishings. The decor is a bright and comfortable with a mix of Modern and Classical styles and can accommodate up to 50 guests. Our private dining room can accommodate 16 guests.
