We decided to have the toasted special which consisted of ham, tomoto and onion. When it arrived it had a lovely salad and chips and it only cost €5.95 which we thought was excellent value. It was beautifully presented and... More

We went for dinner here recently, and I have to say the food and the staff are the worst you will find. The two meals we got were just terrible, we left it on the plate we couldn't eat it.

So, some of the reviews are bad and mine is long to persuade you to ignore those bad ones! The bar: a great spot with plenty of locals.

I stopped here for breakfast and dinner on the way to and from Mayo on day with approx. 20 people. I was not impressed at all. The breakfast was ok, it was all you can eat for 6 euro which was food value. On making our way out after breakfast one of my companions said thank you to the male... More

Would definately recomend this hotel to stay in. Very Clean. Nice friendly staff. Good value for money. Breakfast is great and also a plus is that it is available until 12. I would stay here again if visiting the area.
