We stayed mid week, from Sunday night to Thursday night. We had read many reviews and we were expecting the worst. What I can say is it wasn't the worst. When we arrived we found the lift out of order and it was a Sunday so it wouldn't be looked at until the Monday. I had requested a top floor... More

No wifi and we were told that we could go to the Clarion hotel to access wifi. We had originally booked a suite but upon arriving we were split into different rooms. This accommodation only takes cash - which is ridiculous. The whole experience was not satisfactory considering the amount of money that we paid. The whole place could do... More

Used the Apartments as an overnight stop en-route to Galway. The suites are a bit of a surprise, resembling what they presumably used to be, which is a staff accommodation block. However its all very efficient, the rooms are large (ours included a lounge and kitchen area) and very clean.Would make a very good base for exploring Sligo and it's... More

We had the misfortune if staying here in March. We searched for hotels for 4 nights in Sligo and as this came up we assumed that it would be a nice clean place to stay. However this is NOT a hotel, but a place that is used for short term let's to students and migrant workers. The room was fithy... More

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
