My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night for a wedding. Having been to a lot of weddings in the past we were expecting the same tired service and fare that is usually part of these packages. We were very pleasantly surprised with Garryvoe Hotel! From start to finish this hotel appears to have got it right.... More

We had a room looking out across the bay which was fantastic. Rooms are spacious.... More

The bar area was not very clean. The service was excellent. Menu was limited and very little fish options for a coastal location. Our meal was alright. I'd recommend for basic family food. Good value for money.
