...at least not by asking the hotel to get you a taxi. Everything about the hotel itself was fine - a really big room with a fantastic view, reasonably good food in the pub (I didn't try the restaurant except for breakfast), and a great atmosphere on the weekend when Ireland won the Six Nations rugby. I brought my own... More

I visited this quaint little town for just one night with a friend. We found the staff at the hotel to be extremely polite and helpful. Our room was on the 3rd floor and had gorgeous views over the water. It is a shame there were 2 single beds as we would both have preferred doubles, but this is more... More

Great hotel. Views of the harbour are exceptional. Staff in reception and the bar are very helpful. Food in the bar excellent and very reasonable. Huge portions. The mussels and open prawn and smoked salmon sandwich was delicious. Local craft beers and cider excellent. We will come back.

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. We were met by a lovely girl at reception, who checked us in and told us about our room and breakfast. Our room was nice, the bed was 2 large singles pushed together which often happens in hotels now but the duvet barely covered the bed which was a little nuisance. Breakfast... More
