Myself and my partner went to stay for a few nights. We werent impressed at all. I'll start with the bedroom. I found a shard of glass in the bed, a used plaster on the runner that lay over the bed. The side of the bath was warped and hanging off. Then on to the dining area.... the tables where... More

Hungry travelers en route from West Cork to Dublin we called in for breakfast. The hotel is well signed, just a couple of minutes from the motorway and they serve breakfast till at least 11am. The staff were excellent and were very happy to feed non residents a full (and I mean full) Irish Breakfast for E12. Cereals, toast, fruit... More

Stayed here recently for a family event in the area. Don't know how it managed to get 4* Welcoming was okay at reception when booking in, however booking out was disappointing, receptionist was on phone, took our room key and handed me our receipt, not a murmur! Room was large but very dark as was the rest of the hotel.... More

The receptionist was welcoming, the service good from the start and the room lovely. The bar and food were excellent, and the whole atmosphere was good, had a lovely evening here. I was disappointed we did not stay to use the spa but will come back. Not a fault.

We'd been looking forward to a trip to the Horse and Jockey for a long time and the truth is we should just have left it as something we wanted to do and not made it something we did. Firstly I should say that the place is spotlessly clean but the food is awful and I mean really awful and... More

I stayed in this hotel with colleagues on a business trip for 6 nights overall, over two weeks. The hotel itself is modern and stylish, with a nice pool, spa, hot tub, steam room and sauna. The quality of the meals is top class. Loved the goats cheese starter with orange sauce, beetroot, walnuts and leaves particularly. The bedrooms are... More

I recently stayed here with my husband to attend my Dad's birthday locally in town. We were really pleased with hotel, the room at the hotel was very spacious, luxurious and reasonably priced. We would also highly recommend both the lounge as their cakes are out of this world and the food in the bar is excellent. We will definitely... More

My wife and I as part of a party on our way from Dublin to the Coolmore Racing Stud had an overnight stay here. We arrived in time for a late lunch which was excellent and very much appreciated after an early start from Hampshire via Heathrow. The bar had a racing theme so was therefore perfect for us. After... More

Went here on our holidays, very nice atmosphere and surroundings, staff very friendly and very helpful! Wide choice Of menu, we went in the evening and there was 2 different menus! We had spicy chicken wings to start which were legendary! My chicken curry was lush and hubby loved his mix grill! Would defiantly go back again some day!!
