Stayed here for two nights Our room was lovely , staff were friendly and extremely helpful especially the night porter. Leisure facilities are great. Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely be back again. The only down side would be the food is over priced.

The coffee dock provides fantastic confectionary and good coffee in a very pleasant environment. The bar serves excellent food also. The location, just off the motorway makes it ideal for the Cork to Dublin trip.

We usually stay at this hotel when going to a hurling match in Thurles however with a good package we decided to go over the mid-term break. Yet again food to die for - large, hearty tasty portions. Leisure facilities immaculate. Ambiance relaxed. Rooms spotless. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will be back. Visit Cashel - charming town nearby.

We had a lovely modern room overlooking a field of horses. Food in the bar and restaurant were very good. Bar and lounge were very cozy for a winter stay with big comfortable couches and lots of fires lit. Good leisure facilities too.

I absolutely love the decor, the atmosphere, the horse and jockey theme and the bakery is second to none! The rooms are good, quite spacious, nice decor, the bathrooms used to be very nice and I love the... More

I stayed here on Dec 26th. I have family in the area so always stay here/have family events here/meet friends for lunch/use the spa. I was shocked at the lack of maintenance in the room and the stains on carpet, marks on wall that surpassed normal wear and tear. For the same price there are other hotels with similar facilities/better... More

We were there for two nights, including Dec. 26 which is St. Stephen's, and were lucky to be in the pub when the Wren Boys came. An old custom, these are kids and teens who dress in costume to sing for a donation, and we saw three or four groups, ranging from some darling children to a very irreverent (but... More

My Fiancé & I went to Silks Restaurant for a four course meal to celebrate The New Year & our Anniversary. It was a wonderful meal and the best steak we've had all year. The complimentary processo really topped it off. We've already booked for Valentine's.
