The staff couldn't be more friendly and proffessional - nothing was too much trouble. I only stayed 3 nights but came away feeeling as rested... More

My wife and I visited 25 to 27 August 2014. It was a long way to travel but we had been given a gift voucher for the hotel and this prompted us to visit a part of Ireland we had not previously seen. The hotel is excellent in every respect and the staff were so friendly and helpful which was... More

We stayed here on a two-night package which included dinner. We had a very warm welcome and were shown to our room which had a lovely sea view. Breakfast was super - homemade fluffy free range scrambled eggs which had clearly been made to order was just one highlight - there is literally food for any taste! Dinner was incredible... More

I didn't stay at the hotel but had the best icecream (Swiss Mövenpick) in Ireland ever. The bar which looked quite dark on a previous visit was recently re-designed. What a great and bright place to relax! What an unusual design! What a creative way to serve icecream and fruit cake! The tea came with a delicious piece of short... More

My brother recently got married here. All staff were very helpful. The only negative comment I could make is the need for some light refurbishment in the bedrooms. The... More
