Last night was an adventure! So, most restaurants are closed on Monday! This made finding dinner a challenge ... Walked down the the promenade in downtown Portstewart ... And every recommended restaurant was closed. So, I headed to Portrush to a wine bar. I ordered a cider, scampi with mushy ...

And frankly the drive is breathtaking!!! On the way, I stopped in Glenarm to see the castle ... Which is closed to the public but I may or may not have found a back way into the property. I got some great ...

Just when we finished looking through an outlook another storm rolled in. We were tempted to hide in the water cave up on some rocks but decided not to. On our way up we saw another smaller and safer cave to wait out the rain. It was actually quite a cute hiding spot and had a great sea view.
... in our somewhat rushed tasting that we couldn't discern much between the 12 we had already and the 16, we just aren't connoisseurs enough! but that we (well I for certain) much preferred the 21. Smooth in the throat, delicious to the nose, just all around nice!
And....so ended our adventures....the evening was spent cuddling and watching a few things. No games played - which is shocking for us on holiday I must say!
On the road early again, first stop Enniskillen saw a marching band going to church and actually recognised road signs - the Republic is very different to the North, the houses in the Republic seem to be rendered and painted different colours where as in the North they are brick built and more ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Redcastle Hotel Moville
Stayed one night at the carlton redcastle and have mixed reviews. As mentioned before rooms are very nice and our room had quite a good view. The restaurant was very busy - the waitress said they had 185 for dinner - that did not count ourselves as although I booked with the restaurant on booking via phone our reservation was not made. The food was good but the service was slow where our plates sat on the table unremoved for at least 15-20mins after each course. I do not mind waiting for good food but not having my empty plate left sitting. Although I enjoyed my mussels for starter and lobster for main my tummy did not as at 2.30am, 3.30am and 4am I felt very sick and had severe diarrhoa. At reception on paying my bill I informed the staff I had been unwell and was asked to wait to see the manager. After waiting 15-20mins the pleasant receptionist informed me the manager was too busy to come and they would have the mussels tested. I then paid my bill asking for a charge of water to be removed which had not had at dinner. The upset tummy may have been just me I don't know but I was not impressed when the manager did not come- they probably couldn't be bothered. I will wait to see if I hear anything from them as I asked the receptionist to make sure I do.
Good decor and quality, rooms not bad fittings and furnishing wise. Got the (a?) presedential suite, dissappointment! Had expected at least a sea view, got view of carpark and derelict pub in the next door property.........not what I expected from a suite in a hotel selling itself on view and location anyway?
A modern take on an old favourite
We spent a weekend here in February 2006 and the weather was great. The misty days added to the mystical feel of Donegal, and the sun rising like a huge red ball over the hills of Derry was amazing. The hotel has re-opened after a massive makeover and the addition of a thalasso spa. The style now is modern contemporary with lots of dark wood and leather sofas. The room was very comfortable, the choice was sea view or golf course view. We had a sea view. Food in the restaurant was excellent - surprisingly good, imagainative and well served. Lovely local staff were very helpful. The spa was particularly nice, especially the aromaplasty facial.
I have stayed at the newly refurbished Carlton Redcastle Hotel twice in recent weeks (25 - 27 November 2005 and 28 - 30 December 2005) and was certainly impressed with the scale and nature of the, perhaps overdue, renovations. Perhaps more importantly I was pleased that the hotel has retained its greatest asset - the staff.
Well worth visiting!
The Hotel has recently completed a massive refurbishment and extension programme.
The staff were extremely courteous, friendly and nothing was too much bother for them.
The Spa was really worth the visit, we ended up spending nearly 90 mins sampling most of what was on offer in the pool area.
We had evening dinner and the quality and portions were unbelievable.
Our bedroom was of an extremely high standard and the bathroom had adequate lotions and towels. The shower was really good and had a great powerful spray. (Why don't other Hotels offer the same facilities, after all they charge the same).
To sum up , if you ever are passing close to this hotel, make a point of stopping and sampling everything this Hotel has to offer.
I got married in October this year and we held the reception in the Redcastle Hotel, Co.Donegal. What a fantastic time we had!!! The hotel has just reopened after undergoing a major renovation and the new staff and surroundings helped to make our day a success.
The staff were extremely helpful and courtious and all our guests commented on the hotel. The bedrooms are finished to a very high standard and the honeymoon suite is massive!One nites stay is not enough, so we will back again.
I would highly recommend this hotel to any couple who are planning their wedding or to anyone who is looking for somewhere special.
I stayed for 2 nights at the Redcastle in Aug 2004. I was with a wedding party. The wedding reception was good but the room I stayed in was terrible for the price. It cost us Euro 260 for 2 for 2 nights. The room was small, a 4'6" bed which you could just barely get around. The decor was gloomy. The room was also over the hotel pump which went on and off all night and kept me awake. The walls were very thin and all noise in the corridor was audible.. I could not sleep at all there.
What an amazing place!! The setting is out of this world! Hotel right on the beach and so private, views over the sea, own golf course which you can play for free as residents!! Hotel itself was great - food very good and staff friendly. Made to feel very at home and had a country house hotel feel. If you're reading this you should definately stop here!
Relaxing Break & great wedding reception.
Stayed at the Redcastle for a few days when my brother got married. The wedding reception was held here and couldn't be faulted.
Very family friendly, my son was 10 months old & the staff couldn't be more helpfull. Excellent food, relaxing atmosphere. The only problem was that it was so good we didn't want to leave!!
