I recently stayed in tullys hotel and it was a delightful two days. The hotel is family owned and family run, Paul and son Mark and their team couldn't have provided a warmer welcome. The hotel is warm and cosy and the bar has a lovely buzz to it, with locals of the quaint town of castlerea coming and going, giving it a feeling of being the centre of the the community. We ate in the one night and though the menu was simple, the quality of the food was really excellent with very generous portions, that was the same the next day with breakfast where the Irish breakfast kept us going for the whole day. Our room was very comfortable and clean, and for the price terrific value. Yes there are more modern and plush hotels in the west of Ireland but there is something very special about this little gem of a hotel in castlerea, on a cold night there is nowhere nicer than to be having a drink by the fire in the bar and catching up with friends!
