This was a lovely hotel
My 3 friends and I stayed here for my hen party weekend on the 28/04/2007. Rooms were spacious and clean with all facilities .Staff were friendly and even let us check in early as we had an early flight. The hotel is situated about 15 mins walk from the town centre. Although we found the walk no problem we did return from our night out via taxi which cost us about 10 euros. Did use a bus to get from airport which I wouldn’t recommend as they changed drivers halfway into the journey and the new driver completely forgot to tell us when our stop was! This led to us vacating the bus and catching a taxi to the hotel .Didn‘t use the buses after this as it kind of put us off. Taxi to the airport from the hotel was 33 Euros.
All in all had a great weekend recommend the Arlington bar right in the heart of the town for a great night out, typically Irish fare and show with Irish music and dancers. Will definitely return
