Stayed here last September when playing golf and had a comfortable big room which although slightly dated was very clean . They fitted me in for a massage at short notice in the spa which was lovely. Very nice girls in there and lovely treatment. We would definitely stay here again and the breakfast was excellent.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, we had mountain bikes with us and needed somewhere to store them during our stay, the staff sorted this for us. We dined in the restaurant and found the food lovely and reasonably priced. The hotel room was good... More

We recently stayed here for one night with our baby. Upon arrival we realised we had been upgraded to the bridal suite. Absolutely gorgeous room with amazing views. Staff were very friendly especially at breakfast. Used the pool and spa which were lovely and very clean.

We recently booked a child's birthday party at the Lodge, for €10 you get one hours swim and a main meal with juice and a cone to finish it all off, it was great value and the meal was lovely, staff were also very helpful, a big thank you to Colm Kelly Jnr who looked after us.
