Very nice hotel. Old and qwerty style looking but moderne inside. Bar food and service excellent. Great Steaks from a local butcher. Breakfast ok. Rooms fine. Moderne look. Parking good. Off motorway location between Cork and Dublin. Just one complaint??? No internet in bar ?? They say can't get it???

While the hotel has so much going for it, lovely spa etc it is a real pity that if you want your child to sit and be securely fastened into a highchair, the only ones on offer are ones with no tray. Which would work fine if you were in the bar but these highchairs don't fit the tables in... More

This iconic hotel is situated just off the M8 motorway which joins Dublin and Cork and is equally very accessible from either direction via Exit 6. The staff are warm and welcoming, the food is of excellent quality and reasonably priced. My family and I often stop off on our way to and from Cork and we are never other... More

I paid my 'annual pilgrimage' to the Horse & Jockey for the National Coursing Meeting in nearby Clonmel. I really wouldn't want to stay anywhere else ! The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. As always the bar was busy and the craic mighty, bumping into friends, all there for the same reason ! The bar food and service was... More

As I am from the area I haven't stayed overnight. I have recently however had afternoon tea here with family. It was a nice thing to do for a change but we can all safely say we won't be doing it again. I found it very over priced for the amount of food we got for a group of 7... More

Just spent 3 nights in this wonderful hotel. Our twin superior room was spotlessly clean, the beds very comfortable and in the luxurious bathroom very fluffy towels and all Elemis products. Breakfast was wonderful all aided by a very helpful and attentive waiter. Thanks also to Connie who was very friendly and welcoming.

Stopped here for something to eat on the way home from Sligo, was just expecting the normal pub grub but the food here is definitely a lot more than that! Had rack of lamb with mashed potato and veg, lamb was juicy and cooked perfectly. The deserts are to die for and I ended up eating half of my boyfriends... More

Met up with some friends at the horse and jockey and dined in the in house restaurant. Met by excellent staff who were very patient and courteous. Ordered black pudding starter and steak for mains. The food was excellent and really well presented. Finished off with a selection of deserts, overall great meal, maybe a little more expensive than normal.
