Stayed here for a night the week before Christmas. Not many guests due to time of year but hotel was fully operating. Lovely decor and woodwork, and the food was first class. Staff were helpful and friendly. I look forward to staying here again.

We stayed here near the end of our wonderful trip to Ireland. The woodwork in this hotel is amazing. It was a comfortable, clean room, with a delicious breakfast in the morning. The staff was very friendly and helpful too! And our room had a nice view of the quaint street that it's on. Highly recommend!

We booked a "special" which consisted of two nights bed and breakfast and one free evening meal. A great deal, hotel was everything I expected from a high street hotel, view was overlooking back yards, but price reflected this. Room was clean and comfortable, staff lovely and helpful, breakfast brilliant. A great base for exploring this nice part of Ireland.... More

Situated in amongst a few small shops, restaurants and bars, this pleasant hotel offers impressive decor, with several quiet areas to sit or catch up on emails. The staff were really great - appearing in several 'multitasking' guises (reception, serving, bar, etc.) but always smiling, cheerful and ready to advise. The bedrooms were very clean and comfortable, with heavy curtains... More

Just spent 3 nights at this hotel on a coach tour -very nice. Rooms and food couldn't be faulted with pleasant staff too. Lovely decor and quite places to sit. Not alot nearby but as we were on a coach trip it didn't bother us too much. Pleasant stay. Seemed good wheelchair access.

Was a lovely old building. The fish and chips was delicious for dinner. The room was clean, a little dated, beds were comfy. There was a hungry, neglected, barking dog in the yard adjacent to our room which was disturbing. The room was a tad airless, the window hardly opened and there was no fan in the bathroom. Free wifi... More
