4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Just back from a night in the killeshin. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Staff were extremely friendly, hotel was easy to find. The room was clean and spacious however the only bad point was the lighting in the room, no main light in our bedroom, just two side lights, was very difficult when I was getting ready to... More

The hotel looks like so many built on the outskirts of Irish towns during the boom but it stood out from the rest thanks to exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. We only spent one night but we were happy to stay in the hotel for the entire visit, we were really pleasantly surprised. The food was good and reasonably priced,... More

We got a last minute deal at this hotel and upon arrival the receptionist was lovely. We found that when we got to our room the walls are quite thin and the doors are very noisy. We had dinner in the bar and it was delicious - a wee bit slow on service but was worth the wait. It was... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for writing your review. I was very disappointed to read about your bad night sleep caused by the behaviour of the other guests in the hotel. The night Manager and Night Porter spent the evening trying control these other guests. I can only apologise for the continuous noise from the other guests. Once again... More

We stayed here for one night. Lovely hotel and great food. What made our stay even better was the fantastic staff. In particular, we were served by Ciara at dinner. She was incredibly welcoming and helpful. She is a credit to the team.

Booked this hotel due to being half way inbetween a long journey and it was cheap. Was unsure what to expect due to price but it did not disasppoint.
