We stopped here on the drive between Cork and Dublin on the M8. It is a lovely hotel in the middle of nowhere but close to the highway exit. We anticipated going to the restaurant but were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely lounge with a coffee bar with baked goods. We were able to sit in comfortable chairs and... More

Stopped off on the way home. Very busy place. We had dinner in the bar. We got a table and no delay in our food being served. Friendly staff and gorgeous food only issue we had was the prices. Bit on the expensive side. €14.50 4 an omelette and chips.

We recently stayed here as a group booking. The hotel is quiet nice and was very busy on arrival. I did have to wait at check in for the reception staff to finish a private conversation but didn't mind too much. The room was immaculate and really nicely finished. The cleaning staff are a credit to the hotel. Whilst the... More

The hotel is very clean, tidy and modern. It has a large range of amenities and the rooms are modern, spacious and comfortable with nice bathrooms and comfortable beds. Well located near the motorway and very good value.

Stayed here before and this time was just as nice. Checkin/checkout all to easy. Room very comfortable with nice big 3/4 beds - slept very well. Loved the front bar and having a Guiness and Murphy's with the locals. Super friendly. Restaurant serves great Irish country food with the service good. Wine list a little limited but understandable. Breakfast was... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night whilst attending a golf event at at Thurles Golf Club and were pleasantly surprised to find the place and the people more agreeable than others have suggested. The welcome at reception was friendly and efficient, the room clean and well appointed (if a little tired and dated in places), the dinner... More

We stayed 2 nights Fri and then Tues after doing a bit of travelling. The staff are very helpful and friendly. When you go for breakfast there is always a jolly face greeting you. The owner is very hands on and floats around talking and working. Evening food is very good as well

I travel from Cork to Dublin every couple of months on business and have always stopped in Horse and Jockey restaurant for my dinner on home journey. I have noticed the standards slipping for some time. Today I stopped and had worst experience ever in a restaurant. The dinner was cold and tasteless and the whole place is dated and... More

Now this is a place to call in to when on the Cork /Dublin motorway instead of stopping at one of the few service stations on the way.you will be greeted by friendly staff and enjoy comfortable surroundings. A great choice of menu where you can be assured of first class quality and ample portions. And the price is definitely... More
