We stopped here on the recommendation of a friend of ours on a drive from Dublin to Cork to have dinner. First impressions were that there was an overall shabby feeling, it was as if nothing had been cleaned properly ...ever. Furniture could do with being reupholstered, windows cleaned, floor washed, fresh lick of paint in places, updating of the... More

Pretty good selection of food from main courses to sandwiches, soups etc the service is pretty slow and it can be difficult to attract waitress attention. I had the open crap sandwich which was pretty good. Would choose this as stop off on main road to cork compared to other poor alternatives

We ate in the bar. Ordered 2 steaks. Steaks were cremated. Potatoes were obviously reheats from lunch. Veg poor. Chips were poor. Staff tried to defend the food when we complained. If a decent restuarnt opened up off the M8 this place would have to pull up their socks.

the hotel it self is lovely - a wonderful choice of where to eat - from the formal restaurant to the more casual bar food- either was great! we had a 2 night B&B plus dinner offer and the set menu available to us was the best ever package set menu- just as good as the a la carte! The... More

Was disappointed to be told we could not book into after 4.30pm as hotel had been at full capacity night before. We went to the bar for the drink to wait until the room was ready. Bar staff seemed scared to make eye contact incase we wanted served. Finally got served after having to call a member of staff over.... More

Second room which appeared to be an upgrade also had stained carpet, dusty shelves,and shower did... More

My wife and I stopped for dinner at the Horse & Jockey Restaurant and Bar in the Enclosure Bar. The food was good but not exceptional (definitely not worthy of a Michelin recommendation). The manager was more concerned about watching sports than supervising wait staff. The waitress that served us had some form off attitude or air about her. Our... More
