“Fantastic Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2006

Every year we take a few days holiday in Dingle Co. Kerry. We decided to stay in the Smerwick hotel. It was our second visit. First of all the rooms are very spacious, brightly decorated and very clean. Secondly the views from the hotel are second to none, absolutely amazing. This hotel is not your run of the mill plush hotels, it's family run with friendly staff in a relaxed atmosphere and is ideally located on Slea Head Drive, a must if you visiting Dingle. Finally on this visit my boyfriend proposed to me. So I guess that does make for a wonderful trip.

When we arrived we sat outside on the benches chatting. We weren't long outside there when the manager came out and sat in his car, with the window open right next to the benches. He stayed there until we went inside. We came back later on in the evening and sat out again for about an hour. As soon as we sat down he came out again and didn't go back in until we had all gone in. A bit of sublety wouldn't have gone astray!!

We were told there was a residents bar. However, when we returned from the night out we were told that it wasn't open.

The food in the restaurant was only very fair. I had plaice stuffed with prawns. The plaice was too dry and the prawns were very small and hard.

Between the starter and main course some of us went for a cigarette outside. The manager came out giving out to us because he didn't know where he was to put the plates for the main courses. Now there was 15 of us there at the table and only 4 of us outside so the rest of our crowd could have told him where to put the plates.
