"Well what can I say. Just back from my stay at the Darnley Lodge Hotel and I had the best time every. I had booked a package including the Causey Farm experience for myself and a group of ladies and I have to say everything from the moment we arrived till we left was top class.
Mary you are just the best. Nothing was ever an issue for you. 5* Service.
The rooms were spotless and the linen was crisp and clean.
The food in the bar was gorgeous and plentiful.
The transport to and from the farm and again to the nightclub later on was spot on and extremely prompt. Jim you are a diamond.
I would 100% recommend the Darnley Lodge Hotel"

Excellent hotel

"I was just on a hen party of 14 and we had a package deal with darnley lodge. I highly recommend this hotel if your looking for accommodation in athboy, from start to finish the staff were fantastic. Mary in reception is an absolute pet who goes above and beyond to make sure we were looked after, Deirdre in the bar was great craic and a fountain of local knowledge. Dermot is an absolute genleman who greated us after the night club with a delicious tray of sandwiches and banter. Jim the bus driver was brilliant, carting us around the county all day with a smile on his face. All the staff in this hotel were brilliant, so friendly and willing to oblige. The rooms were spotless and the food was very reasonably priced and very tasty. I would definitely stay in this hotel again."

Hen heaven

"Our little group of 11 hens have just returned from the most lovely stay at Darnley Lodge. in short - I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE HIGHLY ENOUGH.
From the booking right through to checkout was a pleasure and easy. Mary, David, Hazel, Aaron, Jim and Thomas all did a fantastic job in making us feel most welcome. The team accommodated all our requests and we were looked after so well. All the meals - from refreshments on the Fri night to the home cooked breakfasts to the 3 course meal on Sat eve were all top notch. But the girls could not get over Aaron meeting us off the bus from Palace nightclub at 3am on Sun morning, a little worse for wear, to then serve up tea and sandwiches! Unreal service. The rooms were cosy, clean and very spacious bathrooms. The trip to Causey farm was fantastic and I wish I had another excuse to go back this weekend! Thank you so much everyone at Darnley Lodge. You made Aoife's Hen really special. :-) xx"

Hen package

"We stayed here on 24th June as group of 11 hens. The co ordination of the night was handled in a friendly and professional manner and when we arrived on Saturday, everything was ready for us. We had lunch before heading to Causey farm with the hen and it was tasty and plentiful. Lots of cocktail sausages, goujons and sandwiches, tea and coffee. A bus arrived and brought us to the farm and collected us again. The meal in the evening was amazing and again the service as 100%. Again the bus arrived on time to bring us to a nightclub in Navan and collected us as promised at 2am. When we arrived back there was sandwiches tea and coffee waiting which was amazing. I cannot recommend this hen package enough, it was perfect from start to finish. The staff in the hotel are outstanding."

Great spot

"Stayed here this weekend for a hen party. Hotel was excellent, staff could not do enough to help, very friendly and made us all feel very welcome and relaxed. 
Every detail arranged to the last and food was lovely. Rooms cosy and warm, lovely big fluffy towels and great facilities. 
Help offered and given at every opportunity and even fed us on return from nightclub at 4 am. 
Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and intend to return. 
Booked hen party package and despite lots of chopping and changing they accommodated our every need, including breast milk storage;-).....
Congrats to Mary and the team on a fantastic service!"

Happy Hens!

"Just back from a weekend at the Darnley Lodge and had to leave a review. Fifteen of us stayed here for a hen party and everyone agreed that the staff were great and that the food was beautiful. We ate in the hotel both nights, really nice menu and very reasonable. Everything was organised smoothly and efficiently and nothing was a bother to the staff here. Nicola was such a great help before we had even arrived and she managed to have a function room set up for us with a projector which she sourced on my request, so that we could play mr and mrs on a big screen. The service we recieved from Nicola carried on when we got there and she seemed to make everything run smoothly. All the staff were warm and helpful, a special thanks to David who looked out for us all weekend and Sinead who was so friendly and full of information during breakfast.

Thanks so much for making our time in Athboy so special!

If anyone is thinking of doing the Causeyfarm package, I would highly recommend booking it with the Darnley Lodge.

A Happy Hen!"
