One night was enough, the breakfast wasn't good, the service was lacking and the overall stay was poor. The location is terrific in summer, so it was disappointing not to have a better stay. The price and value definitely don't match.

Glad we moved... More

When they answered they denied knowing we had made a booking until my husband quoted the reference at them. They... More

I visited Dundalk recently for a quiet mid-week break. We had nothing booked. as we walked the town we found a B&B at 17.50 euro per person sharing. It looked fine, s owe decided to give it a try. This has to be the best value in the area. It was spotless, food was excellent and the owner was most... More
