Love this hotel. Lovely rooms and great service. Several bars to chose from that all have live music almost nightly and great food. The hotel is full of history. From Michael Collins to Tain't A Bird to a famous monkey burred in the backyard. Well located and run by a lovely family. Don't miss it.

We had dinner in the bar and it was absolutely delicious. Service was excellent, very friendly, lovely atmosphere and great food. Generous portions, we were there quite late but that had no impact on the meal or service, Will definitely be back!!

A bit higglety pigglety but absolutely charming. I met the owner at check in, which was quite late and she was lovely and gave me a great rate for the night. It is right in the centre of town with a great pub attached. The hotel could probably benefit from having money spent on it. BUT I would suggest that... More

If you're looking for a hotel with chrome and glass, then this is not for you. If you are looking for a more 'traditional' place to lay your head then go no further. The hotel is situated in the very centre of the town. Parking is either on the street, in a small private car park (first come first served),... More

stay off the tourist path and a great hotel in a great town. The owners are very friendly and make your stay special from the beginning. the rooms are clean and spacious, with a good pub attached for evening enjoyment and plenty of room to just sit. Internet was available for free.

This was our second time staying at O'Donovan's when visiting our Irish cousins. The O'Donovan family is always so friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and neat and very comfortable. We had two rooms at the back, each with a balcony, and noise was never a problem. Breakfasts are good and the music at night is wonderful! We will... More
