After reading the plethora of well deserved reviews, I can only underscore what has been said: amazing location, fabulous hospitality, and incredible food. Neil and Katy hosted The O Mahony Society Annual Gathering flawlessly and with true panache. I was a little stunned to see ANY negative reviews, but realized they are quite old; there's no accounting for what may... More

Neil and Katy, the owners of this hotel, are 100% involved in caring for their patrons. They are attentive, kind, and personable in all their interactions with their patrons (Katy is the head chef of this hotel, so she is definitely involved!). While there are many hotel rooms in the hotel, it has a feel of a B&B, with individual... More

We stayed only one night in this beautiful establishment. The lake and church gardens are magnificent but nothing compared to the super friendly hospitality and attention to detail that we were given. Excellent food and a lovely hotel.

Our first night out of Dublin on an 11 day Driftwood tour was most enjoyable. The owner host and hotel staff were warm and friendly and made us feel most welcome. The hotel was super comfortable, is located right next to a beautiful lake and is surrounded by a breathtaking landscape. The hotel has a great bar area for a... More

After a long gruelling day on the bikes ,the welcome bestowed upon the four of us made for a great end of the day. The evening meal was breathtaking , service impeccable and the busy mid week atmosphere in the restaurant made for a very memorable stay. A stunning setting and super hotel.

My husband and I had our wedding at St. Finbarr's Oratary and our reception at Gougane Barra Hotel. We came from Chicago and had some anxiety having never met Neil and Katy but we were immediately set at ease. We sat down with Katy upon arrival to go over wedding details and spent the first 60 minutes laughing and getting... More
