The dress code for the restaurant at Castle Durrow is smart casual. At Castle Durrow, we believe that every meal should be an occasion, this is reflected in the way our guests dress.

Our Dining Room is a Mobile Free area, Children under 12 are not permitted in the Dining Room after 8pm.

We cater for all dietary requirements by prior notification.



We are proud to lead an enthusiastic team that enjoys making your stay as comfortable as possible. In this early 18th century cut stone mansion with its magnificent stain glass windows, cantilevered stairs and wonderful decorations we hope that you will feel pampered and spoiled.

Views of the grounds and the surrounding area of Durrow make an overnight stay an extraordinary experience, one that is steeped in history.

Lots of the ingredients for our menu are supplied by the Castles own organic kitchen garden and when you have time and the weather is good, please go for a leisurely stroll around the grounds.

We also use as much local producers as we can., a small selection:

Rossmore farm Ice-cream, the Stanley family from Rathdowney make the best Ice Cream in Ireland, from the cream of their own herd of cows.

The Castle Durrow Sorbet is made exclusively for us by Rebecca to our own recipe.

Our Carrots come from Dunnes Carrot Farm just outside Durrow.

All our meat stock ingredients come from our local butcher Tommy Kenna, he has his own herd, a rarity for a butcher in modern Ireland. From this produce we make our soups and our sauces.

(Of course except our Vegetarian options!)


We hope you enjoy our house as much as we do,

Peter, Shelly and Daughters
