We stayed in a family room with my wife and two young daughters. The brilliant thing about this hotel, is that it does what a hotel should do - plenty of friendly, happy to help staff; unpretentious, yet, very, very good, food; reasonable pricing; good sized room and bathroom; plenty of parking; and a great location. It's how a hotel... More

We tried this hotel on a budget 2-night package which included dinner on one night. The hotel was built about 20-25 years ago. The hotel grounds have matured well and are very well maintained. The hotel itself is a sprawling affair, a very large foyer furnished with multiple sofas (too soft), a large bar and 2 restaurants. There’s also a... More

My fiancé booked a weekend stay to celebrate both our birthdays. We have dined at the hotel many many times...but the stay really opened my eyes to the beauty of the Slieve Russell. Our room was simply magnificent and I was suprised with a card and gift of chocolates from the staff! Everything from the food, service, grounds and overall... More

The glory days of this hotel are now a distant memory. Stayed in this hotel for one night. Our room was on the first floor and on entry, we were met with the awful stench of smoke. The first thing we did was open the windows on our arrival to try to rid the room of the stench. They stayed... More

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your recent review. I am disappointed to note your dis-satisfaction with the Standard Bedroom on the First Floor. Currently, these particular room categories are being re-furbished with an on-going programme which will be completed in Early 2015. Thank you for your kind comments about our grounds and Golf Course. I do hope you will return... More

This is the first time I stayed here. I was on a road trip and stopped in on spec to see if there were available rooms. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpfully offered a bed, breakfast and dinner package that was quite reasonably priced. The rooms are very very nice and comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was... More

I often stay at this hotel both as a couple and as a family, it's great for couples & family. The staff are very friendly and the food is beautiful. The only down side is it is an expensive hotel so I can't go as often as I would like!

Although from the mainland we have been returning to this hotel over the last 14 years for an annual family gathering that includes golf and socialising. The Slieve Russell is very good but very busy especially in terms of the number of concurrent weddings and guests. The staff are exceptionally friendly and professional in a very Irish way which adds... More
