If you want to experience exceptional, seasonal, fresh and mouthwatering food, top class service always, in beautiful surroundings then Castlegrove House is the place to go.We have been here on many occasions, birthdays, our daughters communion celebrations, Mothers day and last week for our Christmas/Anniversary night out. We had little smoked salmon tasters while we waited in the beautifully decorated drawing room.The amuse bouche of white onion and blue cheese soup in little cups were sweet, smooth and delicate. Both our ham hock terrine, and St Tola goats cheese tart were delicious. Our 10yr olds loved the vegetable soup and accompanying selection of freshly baked breads.We then had the Sirloin of Black Angus beef and the Pink Breast of duckling with winter root vegetables. The children had the half portions of Baked ham.For dessert, we made room for coconut and malibu creme brulee, apple and cinnamon strudle, warm chocolate fondant and ice cream with hot chocolate sauce. All I can say is that it was all JUST DIVINE!!!!!!!!!!I can not recommend this little gem highly enough. Mary the owner is just a lady and for the short while you are there she makes it feel like your home. The staff are quick, knowledgeable and courteous. I love this place I just wish I could move in. If you are ever in Donegal it is the one Must See/Do that should be on your list.

I can't believe this place hasn't been reviewed before! This is actually the 2nd time I've eaten here (visiting from Dublin), and I have to say both my husband and I are very impressed. The hotel is lovely (and was decorated beautifully for Christmas). I especially loved having a drink in the cozy drawing room before dinner. The meal was very delicious. The highlight for me was the venison: absolutely stunning flavours and cooked to perfection! The little touches such as the soup for amuse-bouche and home-made mince pies at the end of the meal showed that they really wanted their guests to have an enjoyable dinner. The service was excellent, and I really can't find fault in anything. We'll definitey be back again!
