A early swim looking out onto the... More

A friend and I recently had afternoon tea here, which at 28euro for the two of us was very well priced. The food itself was very good, nicely presented and fresh, it was served in a lovely airy room off reception. The only negative comment I can make is that service was a little slow, it took the receptionist a... More

The furniture and fixtures and overall ambiance makes a visit well worth while.The staff in the bar (and others we met in corridors) seemed very friendly. All we had was a coffee... More

My wife, teenage son and I visited the Mount Falcon Hotel last week for a 2N B&B plus 1EM. Our main reason for going here was because of the hotels setting and old world charm having only been renovated around 10 years ago. Other big attraction was its stocked lake for fishing and the River Moy just outside the grounds.... More
