Stayed here on business and the hotel is mostly modern rooms which have all the necessary amenities with comfy bed, great shower, good aircon and excellent Wifi. However the rooms just lack any kind of character. They are functional, but are missing a few finishing touches to make the good - great! The public areas are nice and spacious and... More

Stayed here for a girls night away. Staff were helpful, room was clean and modern. Food in the restaurant was really excellent. Entertainment in the bar was good. Spa was good. Overall good value and really pleasant stay. Would not recommend for families, as kids are not allowed in the pool, I know mine would be disappointed. Much nearer to... More

I spent one night at this busy hotel just outside of Dublin on a business trip. Well maintained with nice rooms in a good setting. The bar food was simple, but fine and the breakfast standard. I dodn't have time to use the spa. Very good value for money.

I was surprised to see the Irish Rugby team staying here. But eating the bar food I understand why they pick this place. The bar food was amazing, I even heard one of the players commenting on how good the steak sandwich was. We were all delighted with our food,

We were looking forward to staying here going on the advertising and marketing of the hotel which quickly turned into looking forward to leaving the hotel. Firstly, my 12 year old son was charged as an adult supplement upon check-in, however, he was not allowed near the pool / spa area as he had to be over 16. Why charge... More
