We stayed in the Benbulben Apartments last weekend for three nights. We arrived Thursday evening and my Husband checked us in, he said the guy on the desk was very nice and helpful. On entering the Apartments, the lobby area is very shabby and in need of a lick of paint. There is a clapped out sofa bed which I... More

I dont normally write reviews, but after having such an awful experience, I really wanted to warn others. The apartment was far from perfect - no light in the kitchen, missing utensils, knives. The fan on one of the toilets was constantly on, 2 out of 3 TV didnt have remote control and couldnt be turned on without them. We... More

We had a one-bedroom apartment and the rooms were pretty spacious. Though surrounded by international students going for a semester to Sligo University, there is not much noise in the building and you are guaranteed to have a good night sleep. The kitchen part was very handy with a refrigerator, hotplates and an oven. Bed linen and towels were provided.... More

Again, a little nervous upon arrival due to the reviews, but i have to say i was pleasantly surprised. We booked an apartment with 2 rooms and was quite impressed with the set up. The two bedrooms were quite large and the shared 'living room' and kitchen was good enough size for all 5 of us. We did not use... More

I read the bad reviews on here and wasnt looking forward to our stay. The apts are lovely and huge. It was like 3 hotel rooms. Warm and quiet. Enough facilities to cook etc. Yes there's small details like marks on walls etc. But overall id give it 95%. The only thing is as its part of the Clarion hotel... More

4 adults and a 3 year old enjoyed 2 nights here. Very easy to find and most convenient. Staff were really helpful and when we requested more pillows and hair dryer they were sent to room immediately. Nice to have ur own privacy away from hotel which was packed with children. Beds very comfortable. Just a pity there was no... More

Dear Lord, the management sucks, run by a bunch of illiterate ignorant people with no manners. No one is at the reception. NO security, Can you imagine, No cleanliness. Worst of all, the property management manners, aweful. The same old paternalistic attitude. The rooms are dirty. The toilets are not clean. What is shown on the pictures is not actually... More
