Traveled down from Belfast last weekend for Feile, and found the Hotel clean, cheap, staff very friendly and helpful, the breakfast provided was excellent, and the late check-out at no additional cost was very much appreciated. Thanks to all the staff, we will definitely be back.

We went to bed at half 11, could hear noise but nothing major, once 12 kicked in the nightclub below the room started, the whole room was literally vibrating, from the headboards to... More

Went down for a saturday night for a friend's 30th with a few girls - brilliant fun. Hotel was all we could have asked for considering the price. Rooms were clean & spacious. Bar was super fun, club was great, all around good fun. Even got up for brekkie despite late bar! Would recommend for a fun weekend :)

We checked in and were given keys to the 3 rooms we had booked, no-one showed us where they were or helped us with our bags. On first inspection... More

Arrived late. Got single room with breakfast for 30 euro. 25 room only. Had few pints from friendly staff. Breakfast better than average. Clean beds and bathroom. Fantastic value but basic. Dont expect a lot and you wont be disappointed. TV in room.
