Highly recommend this hotel. Lovely clean spacious room. Comfortably slept family of 4 with teenage children. Food was delicious both the evening meal and the buffet breakfast, plenty to chose from. Staff were very helpful and extremely courteous. The leisure centre facilities were wonderful and again the staff were great. Looking forward to another stay here in the future!

We stayed for a wedding September 21st. Booked a family room which cost €153. When you book a Carlton hotel you expect good quality and cleanliness. This wasnt the case for our stay. We stayed in room 136, walls dented and grubby, carpet filthy and stained, kids bed broken and lopsided and way too hot and couldn't control the system.... More

We thought the Clearwater was reasonable for the price, can't complain about that. Not that I wish to complain as this was our second visit within a couple of years. My complaint as per a previous reviewer was the staff. My family and I arrived an hour before the 3pm check in which we realised but whilst we did not... More

We had a lovely lunch at the shearwater hotel. Sunday's lunch is always a carvery and buffet. Staff were friendly but a bit unorganized. Not sure whether this was due to lack of direction? Very welcoming though. Excellent value four courses for €15.95
