My sister and I stayed in this hotel for a two night break and it really was a break away from it all! We had dinner there (served by Richard) on our first night and it was superb. We then adjourned to the bar for some entertainment until bed-time. Breakfast was served to us at the table (again by Richard)... More

Myself and a friend stayed here together on a National Holidays coach trip and we found the whole experience to be a wonderful one. We arrived late on a Sunday evening and had a lovely chicken dinner which set the standard for the meals for the rest of our 4 night stay and happily, they were all just as good.... More

Came with the National Holidays super deal. Very friendly staff, great food and spacious rooms. The atmosphere was great in the bar with live entertainment. The staff really made the holiday as they couldn't do enough for us.

Stayed here using a Groupon voucher. Honestly arriving we were not too sure what to expect as it really is in the countryside, but we left very happy. For dinner we were offered eight options, which we thought was great value seeing as we were using a voucher, and the choices we made were very tasty and very nicely presented.... More

Stayed here for one night on a groupon deal, breakfast and dinner included. Excellent value. Decent size rooms, very clean but a bit dated and there was a large damp stain on the ceiling in our room. The staff make this hotel and this in itself would entice you back. The hotel looks impressive from the outside as it is... More

Stayed here for two nights so that we could eat at a local restaurant in the area. Nice big rooms, very good value, decent dinner, but what really made our stay special was the genuinely friendly service. From reception to the restaurant and the always smiling Ali, this place makes you feel very comfortable. They are all doing an excellent... More

Stayed for two nights on our trip around the area. Not the best rooms of the places we stayed but the service and atmosphere compels me to give them a higher rating. Excellent choices for a vegetarian at Breakfast time and Richard was very helpful in getting me something nice for dinner after I was not too keen on anything... More

Went there for a school trip and it was very satisfactory. We were given a 3 course meal every night and all the staff were very tolerant of us. Nice enough there. Have sports facilities. Economy Holiday. Cliffs of Moher very close.

Service here is excellent and the staff are helpful and welcoming. The building is an 1960's idea of what a castellated manor might look like. Not to my taste but the rooms were large and the bathroom good. The location is not terribly convenient as Lisdoonvarna is perhaps a 25 minute walk along a narrow country road and the hotel... More
