Enjoyed a delcious breakfast at a decent price of €12.50... hot food, great selection of fruit, breads and pastries. Hightlight was the pancake machine which made fresh pancakes. This nice experiece was topped off by the hostess Avril who was warm and welcoming which was very nice to see this early in the morning!

Before arriving at the hotel we had decided that we would try it for bar food sometime in the future as we had never really thought about it before when in the area. However after the recent experience its safe to... More

Have just returned after a 2 night mid-week break. Perfect location. Wonderful staff. Spotlessly clean throughout. A very quiet, spacious room overlooking the Shannon. Beautiful terrace overlooking the river which is ideal for outdoor dining or just a quiet drink. What is there not to like.

This we found strange but complied with the request. We had trouble with the key card but, after several attempts, were successful in gaining access to our room. The room itself... More
