Came in here for an evening and very much enjoyed the music and chatting to Lynn and John. Had a very nice lunch in the day as well. If you are in the village, I would recommend that you pop in for a visit.

Can't recommend this place enough. Lovely family run hotel in a great location with comfortable, spacious rooms. We received a nice welcome at check in and I liked the little extras such as bottled water in the room. The highlight of our stay was the music in the bar - great atmosphere and a lovely way to end our holiday.

An extremely friendly Irish welcome when we arrived. Ate at the restaurant downstairs & the food was good & reasonable. Had breakfast there also & this was lovely. Rooms were clean. Staff very helpful with things to do and places to see & great with the directions.

We stayed with my Family of 4 Adults and a baby over the august weekend. From the minute we arrived we were greeted by the manager of the hotel who was professional and friendly from day one. The rooms were spotlessly clean with tea making facilities, there is a TV in the room, and free wifi. Entertainment was provided on... More

This is a family owned hotel and the family really cares. You see them working from morning to night. At check in I was greeted by two young women who very professionally provided the information I needed. Later they were serving in the restaurant area. This family works to make your stay comfortable. Having said that, there are some concerns.... More

A few friends and I travelled to the Rathbaun hotel on account of tales of decent live music, and the locals had many good things to say about it. I approached the hotel feeling content about the experience I was going to have. We were greeted with a friendly welcome by who was presumably the manager of the hotel. Shortly... More

Our extended family had four rooms in this family run hotel. The rooms were very nice and clean, great value and nice staff. I would recommend to others. Plus they have good music. The Irish breakfast was excellent.

This hotel does not disappoint in the entertainment and food and bar category. Saw a great traditional music band downstairs and the seafood chowder was the best I had on the whole vacation. The room was very basic and could use a little updating. Firm bed, which I like, nice bathroom with great shower.

We have read some poor reviews of this hotel since arriving back home, however this was not our experience. The young staff are super friendly and enthusiastic, the rooms clean and comfy and the live music in the bar was great fun. We ate in the restaurant and had a delicious meal. Breakfast next morning was very nice and just... More
