We stayed here last night, this is a beautiful modern hotel, I was really surprised at how spacious the bedroom is, all the staff are great especially Fiona the receptionist. The bar food is excellent.

Recently ate here with my friend for lunch. Go here regularly and this would be my too choice to bring a friend for casual bar food or a meal in restaurant. Good selection on the menu, always well presented and timely service. I love your garlic mushrooms and delicious duck wrap. Yum!

From check-in to departure, the Hotel service was faultless. Our room was spacious, and the bathroom fully equiped with good quality towels. Dinner on both... More

The staff are friendly and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable...the bed just wants you to jump in it! It was clean and tidy and very modern. The breakfast was excellent if you wanted a cooked breakfast but if you wanted continental it was a bit dull, with a small choice of cereal and pastries which we only... More

Went for an evening meal with my girlfriend. Went for the 3 course set menu for €30 (incl €5 subcharge for steak) which was excellent value. The entire meal was delicious and both steaks were cooked to perfection. Great local craft beer on tap too. Kilanny Red was great! Our waitress was very attentive and kind. Even gave us a... More
