Whether for business or pleasure, this is a very nice hotel to stay at. It is charming, beautiful and well located. The architecture and grounds are exceptional, making for a memorable visit. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is very good.

I had already been in Ireland for a few days when I picked up my mom from the Dublin airport. Knowing that she would be exhausted after a red-eye, I had picked this hotel to stay for our first night. It was perfect! We arrived super early and they were able to get us into a room. The room was... More

Myself & Fiancée stayed here for 1 night staying in executive room 219. The hotel looks very impressive from the outside & the receptionist was lovely..unfortunately I didn't catch her name (she has red hair!) When we got to our room we were a bit concerned about the size of the standard room sizes as the executive was quite small... More

Great value. Lovely spacious comfortable room. Extremely friendly and professional staff. Had dinner in the hotel bar and it was sublime. Could not fault it in any way. Ok the bar was a little chilly, but the food made up for it.

This is a nice hotel that used to be an old school house in the 1800's. It's a very cool building. Service was good, the only problem was it was a little far from the downtown/city centre. Our rooms had a queen bed with a twin as well. It also included breakfast and they had a nice selection for gluten... More
