The room was very quiet with a large... More

After a very long day, all the way up from Dublin, all we wanted was a warm welcome and a big bed. The hotel on Racecourse road is lovely, nice trees, great setting. We got our warm welcome. Indeed not a single thing was too much trouble. We got everything we needed by way of information or directions and all... More
