We stayed at the Slieve Russell this weekend to celebrate being married 13 years. We have stayed here each year since getting married. While we have enjoyed our stay I can notice a marked drop in the quality of the hotel over the past thirteen years. As hotel breaks go, the Slieve Russell is expensive. While the kids club is...

My self and the wife stayed here for 2 nights. Have to admit it was beautiful. The service was great, the food was great, the pool and spa were fantastic and the walks around the grounds where picturesque. Really enjoy the bar as well as the staff were so friendly. Defiantly recommend here for a relaxing get away.

We've stayed here on two occasions, September 13 and May 2014. On both occasions we've found it to be a haven away from the toils and tribulations of the world. From the moment we arrive until we leave the staff can't do enough to ensure that your stay is everything you hoped it would be. The rooms are spacious, well... More

We returned to the Slieve Russell for our 20th wedding anniversary, having held our wedding reception there in August 1994. On learning of the reason for our visit, we were upgraded to a Superior Room, a large end room with a balcony to the side and fantastic view over the golf course. On entering the room we discovered a complimentary... More

I visit a number of hotels in Ireland and different countries during the year to write reviews for private clients and companies. I felt I had to write something on Trip Advisor for this hotel, because after reading some of the reviews, I felt the hotel and staff, were not getting the praise they deserve. I stayed a Saturday and... More

We stayed in the Hotel in August. It was very busy with children running around everywhere. Service was mixed, would have expected better at the prices charged. Bar food was OK but not great, Dinner was fantastic. You pay extra for the spa but it was worth it, didn't use the pool as it was so busy. Rooms are very... More
