The staff in this hotel are a major asset...friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive. We stayed for two nights and had a delicious meal on the first night. Everything was spot on - steak cooked to perfection. Warm,... More

Just had an overnight stay in this lovely friendly hotel which is ideally situated in the Burren and close to some lovely beaches. The staff were all professional and very welcoming and the food was quite good. The bar was very cosy and we were lucky enough to enjoy an Irish trad session on the night we were there. We... More

But I really... More

It it big, clean and plenty of piping hot water for that bath after a long day travelling or hiking. Both dinner and breakfast were well presented, tasty and statisfying. Recommend... More

This hotel is old but quaint. The bathrooms could definitely do with refurbishing, but was nice and comfortable. The food was great as was the ambience of the bar. The room was cold and I couldn't get the heating working, 2 calls down to reception and still no heating, I ended up getting into bed to get warm, a bit... More

Stayed as part of a small group, Dinner, B & B. for Midweek Break. Comfortable Rooms, Friendly Management & Staff, Tasty Filling Breakfasts & Pub Menu Dinners which were well presented, tasty and hearty! Definitely worth a revisit - with coastal & inland scenery which is stunning. Brilliant for a refreshing break!
