We spent two nights here in early July, booking a luxury suite. The room was charming and there was a lot of space with a small kitchen area and sit up bar. The hotel has a spacious underground car park so parking up is not difficult - you will want a car if you stay here as it is some... More

The hotel is in a fine location, with nice modern design and furnishing. The problem, which none of the marketing tells you, is that the guest rooms are above the outdoor court of the local pub. The later it gets, and the more the pub-goers drink, the louder it gets and sleeping becomes impossible. I don't know about you, but... More

The pizza dough was so fresh and the pizza toppings were to die for. The staff were soooo helpful and seemed liked they... More

One block from the water, ideal location. Accommodations were very good. Room was large and very comfortable. The best part was the award... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in July and had a really lovely break. The iced tea at check in was very well received after a long drive and the receptionist could not have been more welcoming! It had been recommended by our son who lives in Dublin and is one of his favourite places to stay! Great food, staff... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in a family room. The room itself was perfect, the best family room we've stayed in with a separate room for the kids to sleep in along with a sink, fridge and microwave. Amazing how much these items make a difference to a stay. Excellent food and service throughout the hotel. We were very impressed... More

The rooms were clean, tidy and spacious. Breakfast is absolutely gorgeous with very tasty croissants, pains au chocolats and pains aux raisins (I am French, I can tell you... More
