Castle Durrow Country House Hotel is located on the N8 Dublin to Cork Road, in the midlands of Ireland, adjoining the quaint village of Durrow, County Laois. The house was built by William Flower (later to become Viscount Ashbrook) in 1716 as his family home in the Midlands of Ireland, its pre-Palladian design and formal gardens were the height of fashion in their day.

The informal mood makes guest enjoyment of the Irish Countryside a delight. Guest have a choice of deluxe rooms, family rooms, castle yard rooms and oriental style rooms.
