Check in was a breeze and it was no hassle that we had been early, a quick call from the receptionist to accommodation to make sure our room was ready and up we went. Upon... More

This is a very nice hotel in the heart of town, close to pubs, shopping and restaurants. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. We only stayed here one night as a stopover on our way around Ireland but would stay here again.
