We stayed in what I think was called 'apartment' which was basically 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms a sittingroom with kettle and fridge in a building adjacent to the hotel not unlike a Masonete type. To me it was an inconvenience because the hotel was a walk... More

The music was that load the floor vibrated. Rang reception to complain got no satisfaction. If anything the noise became louder. Tired... More

We recently spent a night here and the apartments were perfect for my toddler. The hotel was busy that night but we heard no noise and our stay went really well. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the cleanliness and facilities in the apartment were excellent

Had a training course in the hotel for 2 weeks.. Manager and staff could not do enough for me. Room set up every day, projector and screen provided by the hotel. Food lovely in the bar. Would highly recommend this hotel for all types of functions and even meetings..

We stayed in the Shamrock Lodge hotel apartments on Saturday night for my sister's hen party. I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough & will be returning to it. The Manager & staff were so helpful & couldn't have done more for us. I've stayed in many hotels & never experienced more friendly & helpful staff. It's a family run... More

Stayed there for one night, very nice hotel. We arrived just after 11:30pm - Night porter was extremely welcoming and very nice to us. Rooms were very clean and beds were comfortable. Only problem we had was that the room was very cold. Other than that it was a very nice stay and I would love to stay there again.
