It's not easy planning a driving tour of Ireland for 14, when you know a good location, a great meal and secure parking is required. However from an early contact the Fitzwilton staff were most helpful, including setting aside a secure parking area for our cars under the hotel. We were slightly worried on arrival when we were told our... More

The hotel was nice and clean, friendly and helpful staff. Rooms a nice size. The only problem with the room was the bathroom, well the shower was the problem. It was really high up on the wall so you found it difficult to get wet. The food was really good. Well worth the money. The other problem was the area... More

We found the staff to be warm and hospitable, the room satisfactory and the restaurant better than we expected! The breakfast was not particularly exciting, only two choices of cereal, and the strangest marmalade. Yoghurt full of poppyseeds - bit weird. Neverthless, we enjoyed our stay, and had a brilliant experience at the Waterford Crystal factory.

4 stars is a cruel joke. Terrible room . No A/C so windows open got to listen to all sorts of drunks signing on the street and motor cycles all night. Our. Friend had a drunken woman yelling and trying to kick down the door. When we called front desk- nobody answered. Resturant was good.
