Castle Grove Hotel

The main house was built in 1695 by the Grove family after the original was burned during the siege of 1690.  A continual icon in history, Castle Grove hosted the introduction of Daniel O'Connell that led to him being elected MP and also had a big influence in the life of General Richard Montgomery, a famous soldier in the 1774 American War of Independence.

In 1989, Castle Grove became home to the Sweeney family who proudly transformed it into a luxury four star hotel, while preserving the character and beauty of the original house and expansive grounds.  Castle Grove is the ideal venue for weddings, anniversaries and special occasions due to its privacy, grace and welcoming charm. 

We look forward to welcoming you, as we celebrate our 26th year in the long history of Castle Grove.  Please, come and stay, dine and celebrate your special occasions and family traditions with us at Castle Grove.   

The Grounds

 An Oasis of Tranquility

An Oasis of Tranquility

The extensive gardens were designed by Lancelot "Capability" Brown, the same gardener that designed for Hampton Court and Highclere Castle, the setting for Downton Abbey.

The gardens offer a charm and seclusion that one expects to find at the end of a mile long avenue.
