Great beds, a room looking out to sea and an amazing bathroom, what more could you ask for? Quiet rooms? check. Dinner and breakfast on-site? Got it. A pub? Yup. I only wish we had stayed longer. I recommend popping into Castlemartyr and having coffee and sweets at the grocery. Delicious!

Hats off to Management and Staff for another All Star performance for my daughters wedding yesterday, from the moment we crossed the threshold to when we left this morning we have nothing but the highest of praise for everybody associated with the Hotel. Feed back from everyone was that the meal was superb, the staff welcoming and friendly, and a... More

Due to an overlap on dates, I attended two functions taking place simultaneously on Saturday the 8th November, one was a wedding and the second a dinner dance for Ballinrostig Vintage Club. Both events were catering for over 100 diners and both were excellent altogether. The wedding flowed flawlessly with first class attention, service and the food was delightful. I... More

Good place to go for a bite to eat and especially so with a teenage family. Nice menu variety in very good surroundings. Staff are friendly and courteous Being close to the beach is superb. Will be back again

Pool times restricted for children. What's the story? Come on Garryvoe, I was shocked to be told my daughter couldn't use the pool before 10 am. I don't know of any hotel I've ever stayed at on Europe that has a similar policy. Reception told that some adults don't like children in the pool. Sweet mother, is it a family... More

Dear Tony S Many thanks for your recent review, I am disappointed you feel our times in our pool area are not flexible enough for children, I have three young daughters myself and have like yourself a vast experience of hotel times for children in pools. Our times are 10 am to 12 noon and 2pm to 6pm. These are... More

Was at a family wedding unfortunately not staying over. Lovely location near the water. The lobby and bar area are very cosy and welcoming. The function was really beautiful with lovely chandeliers. Food was excellent especially considering there were over 200 of us. Staff were efficient and friendly. Overall a great hotel and venue.

We had a short October break (3 days) in a family room at the hotel. All of the staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was fantastic - a big hit with the kids, as was the swimming pool in the Health Centre. There's a relaxed feel about the place which helps you unwind... More
