Great location just off the main motorway to Dundalk. Food was excellent plenty of choice and high quality. Golf course had a few tricky holes but in great condition. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

A great place to relax even if you don't want to participate in any sporting activities. Lots of little hidden rooms to relax in; bar lounge lobby library terrace, and as the rooms are larger than normal plenty of space to chill out the too with comfy chairs and lighting that enables you to read in your room. Good sized... More

We stayed for four nights and were not disappointed. The service, rooms and food were excellent and although busy with the Golf Club this did not distract from the overall standard. Set in its own grounds with leisure facilities we would certainly stay again when in Ireland.

I come to this hotel a couple of times a year for work. It's your classic hands on owner run establishment. The staff are friendly but not in your face. The rooms are 4 Star, modern and scrupulously clean. Wifi is complimentary, breakfast is good and the bar menu is very good. It does exactly what it says on the... More

Stayed here recently for three nights with a group of Retirees. Great hotel in beautiful surroundings. Excellent service by great staff in a very serene environment. A very central location for visiting historic and scenic sites .

Stayed here as a wedding guest and throughly enjoyed ourselves. What a stunning hotel, the grounds are sublime and the rooms spacious and comfortable. The wedding meal was amazing and without a doubt the best wedding meal I have had by far. All staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. The only downside, the heat in our room was quite overpowering... More

I have been to this hotel many times. The women in my family love it for a weekend get away and I believe it is among my grandmothers favourites. We usually only stay 1-2 nights. The fact that we keep coming back says it all. Its not too far a drive away (from Dublin) and really feels like an escape.... More

We have been to this hotel many times but only for drinks and food. This time we decided to stay for a night and we were not disappointed. The room was very well furnished and we stayed on the ground floor and had the benefit of a private balcony If this appeals to you request rooms around numbers 20 to... More
