Stayed here whilst visiting a supplier last week, and discovered why they'd not recommended it, despite it being right on the coast, and 10 minutes up the road from them. Arrival after driving from Dublin airport - there are 2 parking areas, one is close to reception, long and thin - and seemingly everyone finds it hard to park -... More

Very unwelcoming.Basically went to check in at 1.30pm and told that the room wouldn't be ready until 4.00pm, no apology offered what so ever. As we have stayed here before and the reason why we did again, was it was an engagement gift given to myself and my Fiance. The last time we stayed we got put into an old... More

Recently met for a family dinner in the restaurant, six sisters. From service to presentation, price and taste, We could not fault anything. This restaurant needs more promotion with the standard of food it is serving. Will definitely return.

This is a nice hotel in a good location. Looks out at the sea. It's beautiful. The best thing about the hotel is the staff. They are the best I've encountered. They seem like they want to be there as opposed to having to be there. Always friendly. I will be going back based on how well we were treated.... More
