After travelling for over four hours we arrived at this "hotel!?" only to discover that our room had not been fully cleaned! The first thing we noticed when we walked into the room was a piece of timber left sitting on the table. The bed looked like it was made for us to sleep in but to our surprise we... More

As an Irish person I don't normally review Irish hotels I've stayed in, but, given a very negative previous review and in my opinion an unfair one I felt I had to review the promenade hotel. We arrived early and were informed in a professional and friendly manner that the room wasn't ready but we could leave our luggage in... More

My wife and I visited this hotel and were not impressed at all. It felt like there was no management looking after the place and the waiting staff were not terribly prompt with service and even abrupt in response to queries. Guests opened our door while we were sleeping as staff had given them our room keys...?!?!

This hotel sounds perfect to begin with when you read the description...sea views, looks over the ocean, idyllic location, great food. Well all I can say is the best of luck with all of that because for us it wasn't any of those things and even booking as part of a special offer didn't make up for what was meant... More

We eat in the restaurant during our short break and staff were excellent with a great choice on the menu. We had local fish dishes and the food was excellent. Would recommend a visit. Great sea views across the bay, so request a window table. We will be back.
