The Douglas Hyde Restaurant one of the Best Restaurants in Ireland

An experience worthy of the name

There is nothing quite like fine dining in an authentic Irish castle. At Kilronan Castle Estate & Spa, we hold ourselves to such a standard in our AA Rosette Award winning restaurant, that we named it after Ireland’s first president and Roscommon’s most famous son, Douglas Hyde.

Lauded by critics and loved by customers, this wonderfully elegant location offers an unrivalled level of service, ambience, décor and gastronomical delights for you to enjoy. Open daily for dinner from 6pm until 9:30pm and for Sunday lunch from 1pm until 3:30pm, we invite you to come and experience our wide range of menus, our team of award-winning chefs, our beautifully intimate and elegant surroundings and our cellars stocked with only the finest wines from across the world.

JimiBrennan (Tripadvisor) – “Kilronan Castle is a stunning place. We stayed in the original castle section which is very medieval. The Douglas Hyde Restaurant is out of this world. Truly wonderful sustenance.”
