Our son Aidan married Rosie and we got the Royal treatment. Staff wonderful, friendly and helpful, rooms spacious and spotless and the food was "just right", would appeal to all ages. Recommend if you want to relax before the hustle and bustle in the big cities, like Dublin, Limerick or Cork.

Stayed here as part of the 3 night b&b family bundle. Great value and so accessible to the zoo, funtasia waterpark and 5min from tayto park. Kids had a ball as the hotel is so family orientated and the buffet served every night is a must for value. My only negative is that the drinks are a bit pricey in... More

We (two adults, and two children)spent two nights at the Pillo hotel. From start to finish we enjoyed our stay thoroughly! I must say that any member of staff we met couldn't have been more helpful. Room was clean and spacious which was great for the kids! Anything we wanted for breakfast was there at hand. Lovely pool. Very impressed... More

The staff at the Pillo- Georgina, Derek and everyone else we encountered were amazing. They couldn't have been more helpful or patient. If you are travelling with a family or large group you can't go far wrong with the Pillo.

After spending a night here, I can recommend the hotel highly. Lovely room, nice sized and with comfortable surroundings. However, when we went down for our dinner in the Red Bar, if I am not mistaken, we were served what I would consider the worst meal I had in recent memory. I ordered a chicken korma and onion rings/ The... More
