We were looking for a nice quiet weekend away after a busy couple of weeks and found it in this lovely hotel. We arrived just in time for the carvery lunch , we both had the beef and could hardly eat it all we had so much on our plate , it was delicious. We made use of the lovely... More

Our family of 5 spent 3 nights at the self-catering lodges during the Halloween break. We were delighted with the lodges. They are spacious - with a good-sized living room, a large dinner table, 3 WCs (including an en-suite). All very comfortable. Plenty of room for 3 spirited young kids and their tired parents!!! Kids loved the 'Kids club' -... More

We had booked a family room for three for one evening to coincide with some hospital visits we were making nearby. However, we decided very quickly to extend the stay for a further two evenings. The accommodation was very comfortable, the staff were genuinely friendly and welcoming, the swimming pool was just what we needed for the time we had... More

First review of this hotel despite staying there previously. Agree that the rooms are are a little tired and could do with a little TLC. However have to say that they are spotlessly clean and the beds are always really comfortable. We were there with family for my Cousin's wedding and can not fault the staff, food or overall service.... More

Ran a large two day course in the hotel and found the whole experience very good. Admittedly décor throughout is a little tired and dated but everywhere is spotlessly clean and warm. The staff are the reason we would definitely look to work here again. Everyone we dealt with went out of their way to be helpful and the food... More

I stayed here on business as i do three nights a week all over Ireland. This one puzzels me as it seems that every one thinks its great. I found the room very clean, large, comfortable, every thing you'd be looking for. Problem was everything in the room was old and abused. The furniture was all very bleak, not antique... More

I spent 3 nights at the Abbey Court Hotel last weekend for friends' marriage. We were in 1 of the houses on the hotel's estate. Other friends were in the hotel. The hotel is beautiful and the staff very courteous. The food was great and we are already talking about going back for the couple's first anniversary. Instead of the... More

A lovely large hotel that looks like a castle but apparently was built to look like one but is not. It is an older property and could do with a refurb but it is a great experience. My son loved the knights locked on each floor and the friar tucks in the front bar. The staff were extremely friendly -... More

We booked this hotel for one night based on the most recent reviews on tripadvisor. This was the worst hotel that we stayed in while we were travelling through Ireland. It is in need of a cheery makeover, everything looked drab. The bathtub in our room was not cleaned after the previous guest had checked out. The hotel front staff... More
