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.

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
