Stayed here for a hen party... Not idea for a couples break or relaxing break away. Very noisy. We didn't realise until leaving that you have to lock the bedrooms doors, even though they close automatically they don't lock!! Anyone could have gone into our room at any time. Not very clean. No pressure in the shower at all, the... More

Third or fourth time to call here this time for lunch, good varied selection on the menu all reasonably priced. Service was very quick and the staff very friendly the food very good and piping hot. Lunch is served from 12 noon and it is advisable to be early as it seems to become quite busy from 1.00pm.

Booked this hotel during cat laughs festival so the options were very limited. It is very tired and dated. Did not smell good in reception area. Stairs and corridor need a good clean and room felt grimy. Shower was the worst I have ever experienced and provided barely a trickle of water. When it was time to check out a... More

Visiting from London on a PR trip with my model friends. Ready enjoyed my stay at this place. John and Bobby were fantastic "craic' (whatever that means) and the room and breakfast was great. The staff were ever so friendly. My only problem with the place is they wouldn't play Eastenders in the bar and they only played what I... More

Stayed for 2 days at the Brog Maker in May 2015. Rooms basic but clean and breakfast good. Walking distance to city centre and loads of parking. Definite bonus staying somewhere we could go back early to and have a meal and a drink. Meals were excellent - try the Irish stew and the beer very good. Staff very friendly... More
