We stayed there on the first night of our tour of Ireland, and were really happy for choosing this hotel. There was everything we could wish for after flying into Dublin airport and trying to get used to driving on the "wrong side" of the road. This small hotel is just under 30 minutes from Dublin airport, so it was... More

We ate here recently to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday. We have been here before and were always very happy. Starters were lovely as were desserts but the main courses were a big let-down. Salmon portions seemed smaller than usual but the worst thing was that we were given a small dish of mixed vegetables and a small dish of... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in a large very comfortable room. The staff were very friendly and obliging. Samuel Beckett's mother was born here and there are stern portraits of Samuel looking at you as you have your drinks ! Unfortunately events conspired to stop us eating at the restaurant but it was always full. If I have one... More

My family and I had Sunday lunch here last weekend for a birthday celebration. The food - all starters, mains and desserts were delicious. There was a good selection on the children's menu too. I requested peppermint tea after dinner, of which they had none, so they made some up for me with fresh mint leaves! All of us left... More

Had lunch here on Sunday last, with our daughter and her family. It was a very enjoyable experience. The food was just marvellous, 3 courses and tea/coffee. Good range of choices, and good amounts of food at each course. The staff were fabulous, attentive, accommodating without being stuffy, and the ambience in the restaurant was very relaxing and welcoming. I... More

However, we got room 3 and it was very disappointing. They completely ignored my request and didn't even acknowledge it. Negatives: Reception... More

Staff have to be the friendliest in Ireland. Service was marvellous. Food was excellent. Bedroom was lovely. My wife's necklace dropped in the sink and disappeared into the s-bend. I mentioned this to the manager and he said "no worries".10 minutes later he arrived back with it. Unbelievable service above and beyond the call of duty!!!!!!!
