We had a lovely stay over the weekend. The Thermal Suite, Espa and indeed the gym facilities were excellent. The grounds are beautiful and there's plenty to do. This hotel tries to cater for everyone, and while the hotel was busy over the weekend, our room was quiet and tranquil. Aside from the great facilities, the food in the restaurant... More

Setting is incredible...gardens are beautiful. Service was attentive and catered to our every need. We booked two rooms and both were upgraded. One to a massive suite with a bathroom to die for! Enjoyed the spa, had a drink in the courtyard and a full, cooked to order breakfast. We would come back for sure.

My husband and I stayed at this lovely hotel for 1 night recently. We found the staff to be so friendly and helpful. I dont know why I was surprised about this in the land of the "1000 welcomes", but I was! We had a lovely comfortable room leading into the garden with a little veranda where we could sit... More

We stayed here back in January for a mid week break and it was luxurious. The receptionist Erin was very friendly and professional and really made you feel welcome. The spa room with jacuzzi is a must if you love the finer things in life. The meal and breakfast was perfect in every way. I keep reminding myself i need... More

Effortless check-in; Jenny was especially friendly. The hotel has managed to combine the old, stately-home atmosphere with a sharp and modern overlay that works so well. We had a room on the ground floor that opened into the garden. Breakfast is where the Maryborough really stood out; extremely friendly staff, fast service, regular check-ins to see how the meal is...

We spent 3 nights at the Maryborough, our last stop on a two week trip around Ireland. Since we were celebrating my husband's milestone birthday, I wanted something memorable and the suites seemed like a reasonable and interesting option. Our suite was spectacular. It occupied the entire front of the original Maryborough House and was tastefully furnished with a mix... More
