On check in we were welcomed with a warm punch which was a lovely touch. The room was lovely and the welcome card and little baked biscuit was a lovely treat. It is a lovely relaxing setting and I will certainly return. The breakfast was lovely served to the table rather than buffet style which I really liked. There was... More

We stayed in a suite and it was really beautiful, wall mounted TV, our own bar and chill out couches ! Bliss ! We ate in the... More

A small group of us stayed in the Twelve last weekend for a night away. From the minute we arrived to the hotel the staff couldn't do enough for us, the customer service was spot on! We stayed in a 2 bed suite which had a living room area, small kitchenette and 2 bedrooms with ensuites. Room wise we were... More

The lovely touches such as a glass of warm mulled wine as we checked in, not to mention the birthday pastries and chocolate covered strawberries in the room , the birthday dessert with the candle and to...

Stayed here when it first opened and liked it. We went back with kids and enjoyed it even more. Most similar hotels fail to get the quality and customer service to match the going. The Twelve manages to be contemporary and innovative (bakery and pizzeria are great) while serving great food and doing relaxed Irish hospitality without any gimmicks at... More

The room was very modern but with a very warm feeling to it. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. The food was top class both at the wedding... More

My wife and I stayed during October mid term break. We had stayed at this hotel about three years ago. On this occasion we found some things had slipped from our previous very good experience. It had been raining so on arrival at reception entrance there was a large muddy deposit left on paving immediately outside the entrance door which... More
