We were not disappointed as we had one of the larger superior rooms on the 2nd floor with two windows with fantastic... More

We stayed in the big family suite for two nights. This was a good base to explore the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula. Our room and facilities at the hotel were first rate, but do be aware that the pool is actually located in another hotel. Internet access was unrestricted, easy, and much appreciated by a techno-dependent family.... More

Wonderfully run hotel with amazing food! I attended a wedding here and the standard of the food was just as good as it was in the restaurant (I previously dined in their restaurant in June). Prices in the restaurant are what you would expect from a hotel of this standard. I can't fault anything, had a lovely stay. Every staff... More

Comfortable place to say. 15 minute walk to central city. Food average, nothing special. A good, clean place to stay.There is a cute pitch and putt course on premises as well as tennis courts.Rooms are quite large and well appointed. Views are good in all directions. Close to the start of Ring of Kerry. A good drive. A day trip.

Stayed in a corner front room which is well appointed.very welcoming hotel and great service.the only negative point is the waitress @breakfast who was very efficient but lacks any friendlyness(a greeting or even a smile wouldnt be amissed)the gentleman in charge of service was in contrary very welcoming and attemtive to customer's needs.
