Unless you have heavy duty earplugs, cast iron stomach and a bottle of bleach!! Walls are paper thin, could hear next door making their cuppa amongst other things! Restaurant food was awful and service there was equally as bad! Rooms and restaurant In need of a good clean, Plumbing bangs and clangs like nothing I've ever heard! Certainly an experience... More

Very quiet, character Pub/Hotel. Food OK. Decor in the rooms a little frayed in places but comfortable, warm and very clean. Breakfast was enormous! WiFi is free but difficult to get decent reception - but then it's difficult to get decent mobile reception in Clare anyway. Would book again.

we only wanted two chicken wraps... we waited over an hour and after I asked they came 15 mins later. Staff tell blatant lies about things will be ready. Another group of people finally gave up and asked for the money back as their food failed to show up. Seriously, these people haven't a clue how to run a pub.

We went here for new years eve 2013 - what an absolute rip off! We went for the full ticket to include champagne on arrival (we had to ask for it and then it was warm), canapés (nowhere to be seen), the 3 course meal (some dishes not as described with items missing, cold vegetables) and to finishing dancing to...

We arrived to an empty resturant but thought at least the service would be quick as we were the only ones in the resturant. We ordered our drinks and... More

A lovely old fashioned pub with character and a wide range of good food. The room we had was large. The bed was large and comfortable with good quality bedding. The staff were friendly. The breakfast was good and they cooked to order.

Was gives the Bridal suite. I do not know what was below the room but it sounded like they test jet engines down there. The floor even vibrated. This went on all night. Bathroom fittings require renewal, sink with rubber plug and no chain didn't cut it for me. Member of staff in the morning refused to print m colleagues... More

We recently got married at the Bell Hotel and cannot thank the staff enough for their beautiful rooms, excellent food and friendly service. You made our day. All our friends and family enjoyed themselves too. Thank you - Louise and Michael Gregory.

We have just spent the night at the Bell, celebrating a Golden Wedding with family. Excellent food both at the celebration meal, and at breakfast the morning after. The rooms were spacious, warm and comfortable, and the staff were friendly and helpful throughout. Would throughly recommend for a family celebration. A great time was had by all.
