We held a Christmas networking function at this hotel last night where we had over 70 guests in attendance. Niall, Oliver, Karen and her staff were so helpful and nothing was a trouble to them. The conference room was decorated brilliantly for the festive season and the layout was perfect. Service from the staff who served Christmas dinner was excellent.... More

Wonderful hotel with countryside views to match. Rooms have no AC, and can be warm and stuffy. Staff is very nice, but ask for extra towels and make sure you request a full size fan to reduce the stuffy feeling in the room.

This is a lovely, clean and comfortable hotel. It's a few miles outside of Dundalk but worth the effort to get there. The reception area sits neatly into the the old house, not even making a dent in the charm of this otherwise modern hotel. And yet the original House is very impressive as you approach it. It looks even... More

Played golf on the well laid out and good conditioned golf course. Not the hardest of courses but a test nonetheless. Had a very nice meal also which was well presented and very tasty. Portions were good and staff friendly and attentive. Would like to return in the future and stay over as the hotel seems very welcoming.
