Excellent! Very friendly staff, amazing food, great hospitality! Stayed in a family room which was little tired and at the front of the hotel, could hear road noise, so would request a room towards the back of the hotel. Would recommend!

My wife and family stayed here for 2 nights for my sister in laws wedding (Noonan). From start to finish I have nothing but positive comments for the hotel and its staff. The Wedding was amazing and hand on heart I can say that the Wedding Breakfast is the best I've ever had. Credit to the Bride and Groom for... More

NEVER have I experienced such quality of service, honestly..go see! From arrival, Sinead's welcome & efficiency, Elaine's ability to make you feel you were her only treatment all day, at the Spa, Jackie & Andrea in the restaurant, the flavour of the food, the service and standard,spotless hotel. A 5* experience all round. Even two young staff going home late... More

Dear Guest, I am very sorry to hear you did not fully enjoy your recent spa experience with us. Due to the nature of the day with over 17,000 spectators in attendance at the local Gaelic grounds adjacent to the hotel and with the number of people also in the hotel on the day we did foresee that noise would...

The food was first class and the staff were very attentive. There were about seventy guests on the dancing break and the atmosphere was... More

Just back from a memorable stay at the Villa Rose hotel, attended a fabulous wedding. Hotel clean and fairly stylish, furniture in room a little dated perhaps but charming. 2 small gripes, shower screen didn't prevent water leaking onto floor, and our room was on front street and quite noisy early in the morning due to traffic. Food was fabulous... More
