I was working in Rathkeale for the day and someone suggested I go here for lunch. I arrived just before 12.30pm. Everything was set up. Choice between bacon and lamb joints, and salmon, chicken curry and a wrapped breast of chicken. I opted for the lamb which was cut carefully and arranged carefully on the plate by a young man...

Loved this hotel. Rooms were large & comfortable. Bar & restaurant excellent. Had two great meals here, staff were helpful & up for a laugh. This was just what we needed to relax during our holiday. Wifi was not great away from the reception arrea but not a problem.

We've just got back from a very relaxing break in Ireland. Having spent four nights at this hotel I can highly recommend it for a number of reasons. We had the suite, and found it spacious, clean and with the most comfortable bed imaginable. Breakfast was perfectly cooked to order, fresh and made with quality ingredients. The bar and restaurant... More

We stayed here for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. The staff and accommodation were excellent. The food was great and the variety suited all in our group. The 'Craic' was mighty on New Year's Eve and there was plenty of staff so getting a drink was no problem. Over all the whole experience was highly enjoyable and I... More

Stayed at the hotel after a family funeral and it was just what we needed after a difficult and freezing cold day. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, providing us with all our requests even though this was one of the quiet nights between Christmas and New Year. Breakfast was excellent and staff were so obliging that we were able... More
