Great hotel with really nice clean and spacious bedrooms. Bar is nice and cosy. Breakfast had a nice selection only disappointment was that the pastry weren't replenished. Didn't get to leisure centre on this trip but it looked good. Would return for a stay no problem.

The food in the hotel was excellent, good value well presented and not expensive. The main fault I had and I don't mean to nit pick, the staff were efficient to a fault, they weren't friendly at...

This hotel is situated in beautiful grounds and garden with golf course. It is big and spacious with a good bar menu and sitting accommodation. A great place for children and adults. A separate venue for conferences and weddings means that hotel guests are not overcrowded which I really appreciate as sometimes a wedding can take over a hotel. This... More

While not perfect, this hotel comes fairly close. The setting is beautiful. You enter down a tree lined avenue before seeing the old estate house which has been tastefully added to. Either side of the driveway are holes on the hotel golf course. It is a beaut! Included in our Groupon break was either €20 off the price of a... More

Love this place. Really relaxed and friendly. The house itself is beautiful and the grounds are fabulous. Well worth getting up for a big walk around before breakfast. The facilities are great, bug pool, golf course and tennis courts. It's really close to Fitzpatricks pub and you can use the courtesy bus to get there and back. It's also quite... More
