We were there for a conference dinner. It took more than two hours for the last person to be served. There was a single spot with food and everyone (maybe 200 people) had to queue to get something to eat, so the line lasted for over two hours. By the time I got something to eat, they had ran out of alcohol. I payed 55€ for a plate of potato and noodle salad and one glass of white wine.
But the castle is very pretty.

Was taken to Cloonacauneen Castle restaurant as a treat one Saturday afternoon in April. Thought I was just going for a spin in car so was surprised to turn down the road for the castle. Arrived around 6pm and enjoyed a leisurely drink in the bar before heading to the table. We had soup and garlic mushrooms for starters. We ate almost the whole basket of the delicious breads before our starter. We enjoyed the chicken with whiskey sauce -sublime , the sirloin and the fillet steak cooked to our specs perfectly. The desserts were lovely . We had cheesecake and teas. The service was excellent both in the bar and the dining room. the waitress actually brought us on a short tour of the castle leaving out the bedrooms as they were full . We thought the garden was lovely and it would be an ideal place to eat as part of a large group or a Sunday lunch . The toilets were immaculate as was the rest of the establishment. loved the olde worlde feel . Would love to go again and try other foods or the bbqs . Friendly staff and good food . Local man enjoying drink and chat in bar made us feel at home. I wouldn't bring children in the evenings but Sunday lunch option looks good for families.

Excellent Lunch on sundays, good selection of food always something i would like on. Lovely to start with complimentary warm bread and butter. Lunch portion size is excellent we never leave hungry. The girls are very friendly and alway try and fit us in even when they are very busy.
Cloonacuneen Castle is a beautiful building with its stone wall and decor our guests are alway impressed. We have been for a few drinks in the bar in the evening can be quiet but very cosy.
