Headed here for a getaway in July 2014. Lovely hotel located in a beautiful part of Ireland. Breakfast was nice. Ate in the restaurant on night 1. Service was a little rushed. 2nd night ate in bar. Food excellent both times. Fab bedrooms and staff. Visit the famine village while in the area.

I would recommend a beauty treatment in the spa for relaxation before a cocktail in the bar prior to dinner...My husband and I are always looked after and... More
