I have stayed here many times before on business (the last time about 3 years ago) and decided to take my wife as we were visiting Ireland for a Christening about 40 miles away, as I had told her (previously) about this great hotel in a remote, yet lovely location with superb facilities including a dedicated 2.5k walk around the...

Location: Middle of nowhere, with fabulous views over the rolling Cavan countryside. The fact that the hotel is always busy is ample proof that people will travel for excellence. Public spaces: spacious, clean, bright. Bedrooms: we had a family room on the ground floor. Large, pleasant room with elegant, well equipped bathroom. Restaurants: 2. One for casual eating, the other... More

Ordered coffees and desert from the bar. Nothing memorable and apple pie was tasteless. Service was fine, staff were friendly but whole atmosphere lacked something.. Felt tired and worn in comparison to other visits year previous

We are a family of 5 so we find it very hard to get a hotel that will allow all of us stay in one room at a reasonable price. The rooms in the Slieve Russell are big enough for us even with an extra bed in it. The rooms are clean, quite and the beds are very comfortable. This... More

This hotel has a beautiful imposing entrance and lots of large comfortable couches and spacious sitting areas. The staff are very friendly and helpful. This is our third stay here and we come because of the lovely spacious ambience and comfort this hotel exudes. Twice, I have found their deluxe rooms small, dark and somewhat drab. We upgraded to a... More

Friendly staff, delicious food, excellent sleep and fantastic facilities! Just had a 2 night stay at the hotel with 2 children under 6. The hotel has something to cater for all the family. We didn't need to leave the hotel. The kids enjoyed the kids club. It is expensive, but we couldn't have asked for anything more!
