This is one of the hotels we stayed at during a CIE tour called "Jewels of Ireland". All of the hotels they selected were excellent. All had a full breakfast buffet added, some slightly better than others.

Just back from a wonderful stay at Actons. Lovely view of the harbour (costs a little but more but definitely worth it). Leisure centre is also a plus. Great breakfasts and the bar food is really good. But highest praise goes to the staff. So friendly and helpful and really made our stay.

We stayed two nights here. One thing that stands out to my wife and I was there excellent customer service. On the day of our departure I came down with some sort of a virus (not food related), I felt awful. We ordered some toast and Ginger Ale from the restaurant there to see if I could try and hold...

Stayed for 3 nights mid-week break. The staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We enjoyed the swimming pool and the restaurant. The location is very handy for everything in the town and there is a lovely view from the dining room. Definitley recommend it.

I stayed at this hotel as part of a bus tour. It was delightful, with a great location overlooking the bay. Our room was decent. I was delighted that the hotel has a "leisure centre," which includes a gym and pool and spa. I only wish we had stayed longer!

Stayed for three nights with family! We arrived early and were able to check in which was a bonus. Friendly staff, central location and a pool which the kids loved. Definitely child friendly. Rooms are big and very comfortable. Only small gripe was the full Irish, should be better, saying that there is plenty of choice apart from the full... More

At the wedding reception the ladies was decked out with all sorts of helpful items (deodorant, hair spray ect), very thoughtful and practical. The bride... More

Perhaps I'm not the B&B type. We stayed in several during our 2-week vacation in Ireland, and they were lovely (for the most part) but I guess I just really needed a night in a really nice hotel. This fit the bill and then some. Actons Hotel is very modern and recently updated, but with much of the character of... More

Stayed here for one night last week. Check in was very quick and receptionist was very friendly. Room was a harbour view room and I requested a room high up, which I got. Room was very clean and nicely decorated and bed was very comfortable. Used the swimming pool which was also very good. Breakfast was very good, great selection... More
