An Chuirt, the Court Hotel Gweedore Reviews
Ostentatious in parts but good quality, clean and very friendly Apr 01, 2008
An Chúirt, is built on the foundations of what was formerly Lord George Hill’s residence in Gweedore from the 1830’s. More recently the house was used as a hunting lodge and then as a hotel during the early 20th century.
In recent years local developer Patrick Doherty and family have remodelled the old site demolishing the whole of he original building. The new hotel boasts many fine touches even if it strays into ostentation at times. They have invested in fine art, quality fabrics and furnishing, porcelain antiques and pieces of history .
This 66 bedroom establishment is located next to Glenveagh National Park affording hotel guests unrivalled views, with mountain and forest walks, lake filled valleys fringed by the Atlantic coastline. The restaurant has established a good reputation for freshly prepared cuisine served in friendly relaxed surroundings with both a la carte and table d'hote menus. Sunday lunch is a popular occasion in the PJD bar with spectacular views of the "Clady River" it is open to residents and non residents, and serving a beautiful bar menu daily.
Residents can enjoy the use of the newly opened "Earagail Health Club" offering state of the art facilities. The view up the river to Errigal is spectacular and the hotel is fast becoming a secluded ‘breakaway’ destination for people from Derry and Belfast by car and being so close to Donegal Airport (Carrickfin) to people arriving by air from Dublin and Glasgow. Definitely work a visit.
