We stayed for two nights in a superior suit and i couldn't have asked for better service, the staff for starters went above and beyond what was expected from any hotel we ever stayed in.

Booked as the better looking option to attend the nearby INEC concert halls for an Irish traditional music folk festival. Upgraded to top floor, free and fast wifi, and big bed. Room had views of the mountains.

We arrived at the hotel fairly late on a Sunday and without a reservation in July, and the reception staff couldn't have been more lovely and helpful. We were checked in in no time, with a reasonable rate and a room upgrade. The receptionist recommended somewhere for us to eat, booked us a table and a taxi into town, and... More

Wow - where to start? We have recently attended a wedding in The Brehon, and OMG - there is nothing I can find a fault in, and trust me - I am one fussy girl.
