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

This place is dreadful. It is dirty, the beds are uncomfortable as they consist of 2 single beds pushed together and the duvet is not big enough. We had no shower head on our shower so it was like standing under a pipe. There is hardly ever anyone there to complain to, and when you drive across the road to... More

Limited service but it's great if your going out for the night and just want somewhere to sleep. People on reception were very nice and price was great... Couldn't fault it from our perspective but would question if it's suitable for other groups. Thanks

Stayed in these apartments beside the Clarion Hotel for a family reunion and found them to very good. Friendly staff and when not at reception could call if there was a problem. If there was one complaint it would be some extra delph in the apartments rather than just enough for the number of guests....but that's being picky. All in... More

Very disappointing, no reception, room was tired looking in need of a face lift, took forever to cook a bit of dinner in the smallest kitchen ever and my back was in bits after the worst night sleep in that bed. Never again!!

Visited Benbulben as a family group and in a word it's terrible. The place is dirty, there is no contact people around ever. No security, anyone can enter the complex. We had a 2 bedroom apt and the adjoining doors were just kept open using masking tape, no handles not great with 3 kids under 9 staying in that bedroom... More

I had to make a call to gain entry, which in fairness wasn't too long a wait to be let in. I was shown my apartment, which was spacious and had better kitchen facilities than advertised, which was a plus, but the living room is in a bit of a timed warp and looks like it could do with freshening...

Well, if you can find it, it's amazing!! Haha It took us a long time to find the place, but once we did and got into the rooms, they were great. It was off the beaten path and looks like a college dorm...feels like it too. Once you find it, you have to call someone to let you in, which... More

We had a very enjoyable stay in these apartments very nice and ground floor to with its own glass door entry. These are on the property of the clarion hotel a short drive from town and also nice for parking and quiet. Would recommend these if visiting and you don't want to have the hotel experience. Staff were there at... More
