Although the hotel was very busy with a funeral reception when we arrived, the welcome we got was sincere and warm. Without delay, we were given our keys and escorted to room 203. Its décor is urban chic, large, has good lighting, and is nicely equipped with electronics. The comfortable king sized bed has good quality sheets, comforter and fluffy pillows. The modern bathroom has a warm tile floor, great big bath tub, excellent water pressure, large soft towels, washcloths (not standard in Ireland), aromatherapy bath products, and bathrobes. Not just chocolates but also a nice votive candle is left in the room at evening turn down.
The breakfast is excellent. You can help yourself to the cold buffet with yogurts, fruits, fresh baked pastries and Irish brown soda bread (yum). Then you are served the hot breakfast of your choice. That is when the owners take the time to get to know you and help plan your time. We’re so glad we took the recommendation to drive the Ring of Beare instead of the touristy Ring of Kerry.
The rooms do not have tea/coffee pots. But a very nice touch is the staff cheerfully delivered a pot of coffee with cream and cookies to our room at our request.
The hotel is not on the main street, but, a short (5 minute) peaceful walk from the city center. It is dark, but hardly scary! Stop and pet the little black kitty cat on the way.
We had booked a very good offer on the hotel’s web page. Our stay was a pleasure and a great value.
