On arriving we were greeted by friendly and very helpful staff all smiling happy and eager to help. we were shown to our more than ample room (#300 on the main floor adjacent to the entrance parlor which is large with incredible furnishings and art.
We were there for 4 nights and quickly became one of the family. Let me say that the food in the main dining room was extremely well prepared very tasty. We found a room 2 away from the bar with a fireplace and it was empty and once we asked for the fireplace to be lit we were able to have this room every night on our own with all the service we needed to complete a very romantic stay.
The Irish breakfast is the best breakfast I have found and this property served it meeting all my expectations. The bar is well stocked with fine Irish whiskeys and Irish single malts and the pricing was agreeable. The food in the bar is wonderful and the service impeccable. We travelled around the country using the hotel as a base and they knew the answers to all my Questions and our shopping and pictures are among the best in Ireland thanks to the directions and tips from the staff.
I would have given this property an excellent rating except the only bad experience we had there was when we left I realized I had left my camera battery charger and battery plugged into a receptacle in our room. We immediately Emailed them, and identified our room # and asked them to forward it to our home and authorized them to charge any charges to our Credit card to expedite the return and alas, their last chance to make this a "for sure place the next time in Ireland" turned into a crappy finish to a wonderful visit.
