This is a fantastic hotel The service in the bar, restaurant and breakfast area is second to none. Their menus are extensive and can compete with any 5 star hotels I've stayed in. It's also pet friendly which is important to me and my wife and our dog is always welcomed lovingly. We were greeted on arrival by the lovely... More

Just returned from our 3rd visit to The Twelve and we were not disappointed - From check in to general service and cleanliness, the hotel is faultless. We experience one of our nicest meals ever in West, can't compliment it enough - Breakfasts and dinner in the Pins was also lovely - Donnellys pub across the road is lovely for... More

From the moment I had bar food lunch on a scouting trip, to our check-in (sitting down with a complimentary hot toddy), to our well apportioned rooms, to our wonderful gourmet dining experience - to nightcaps and finally to a complimentary hot chocolate after a brisk walk before we left - all 7 of us loved this hotel!

Only stayed for one night. Great hotel, room was comfortable quite dark though and nice big bed. Outside of town about a 10 minute drive, €15 taxi. Breakfast was delicious, good variety. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great bar with huge variety of beers and drinks

Myself, my husband and our baby son stayed overnight in the twelve on Jan 24th. This was our second visit to the twelve albeit 3 years apart! We could not believe we were given the very same room and were thrilled with the fabulous baked goods and personalised card that greeted us. Fergus and his team's attention to detail is... More
