Great location, plenty of parking. Good opening hours, would be better if it opened at 6:00am. The Leisure Centre needs a bit of work dough. The changing rooms are too small and can not handle peek times (7-9pm). The pool is very shallow, no kids pool. Gym is only OK. The hole area is run down and not clean. Mould... More

We held our wedding here last May (sorry for the delayed review) and everything was perfect! We were a group of almost 50 people staying here for 2 nights. First off, we are from Canada, and it was pretty effortless to organize our special day from abroad. Communications were efficient and normally very quick. We were able to easily sort... More

Wow. What an amazing destination, it's right on a the most beautiful beach. Even if you're weary traveller you will be drawn out to this beautiful beach to be revived. The hotel in fairness is no Hilton but don't mistake that as a bad thing. The rooms were comfortable, not too trendy but you will spend your time looking out... More

We have just returned from a two night stay. We were two families with teenage boys looking for a short break before the new term. From check-in to departure we were not disappointed, the boys loved the pool, gym and bowling. We loved the fact that there were no gaming arcades around and when the boys were not inside they...

During our stay in the hotel we found it very pleasant. The breakfast was fab, the bedroom was clean except for 3 spiders that I caught and put them outside so my little darling could sleep, the sea view from the bedroom was very relaxing and the swimming pool was nice. I love the parking facilities and the little Newsagent... More

We stayed one night here. The hotel is about a 10 minute drive out of Dungarvan in a very quiet setting on the sea, offering lovely views from the room. The hotel looks a little tired and the rooms are very basic, but it was fine for a night and very reasonably priced. There is a takeaway shop and a... More

This is a hotel that will suit people with kids first and foremost - it's the kind of place where kids can run about indoors and there is a playground in the grounds. It's lacking in anything special for people on business or romantic getaways...

A throw back to when I was a child - the hotel has probably not been renovated since the 80's. The room was clean - the shower was good and the location was fantastic. Got a great view from our room but ventilation was an issue and a ceiling fan would have been handy. Opening the windows was an idea... More
