This was the first time my wife and myself had visited Ireland, taking advantage of the marriage of Mr & Mrs Blaiklock. First impressions were to last-excellent. Friendly staff, clean hotel, spacious room. We took advantage of the attached bar and then dinner (which was part of the deal). Superb wines, superb quality, excellent amounts (not too much/not too little). Staff always had a smile and were helpful. After a good night's sleep (by me at least-my wife can never settle unless she has a certain type of pillow so maybe something to consider?) and first class breakfast, the wedding reception was that afternoon & evening. Probably the best we have been to-no rush, plenty of room, a choice of food for the meal (very rare this day), good wines, good service. After the meal later that night, they brought out nibbles-suiperb idea. Again, a good sleep and breakfast followed by touring the local area (The Jameson Experience is a must), relaxing afternoon, another excellent dinner, we arranged an slightly early breakfast the next morning as we hads an early check out-breakfast was ready early, check out was simple.
Some might be put off at the prices-it is worth every penny and after having been there great value. By the way, don't expect night life outside the hotel or a seaside resort-the hotel is pretty much all you get! Oh, don't forget you get free wifi as well

Dear Mr CHG_7

Thank you for your wonderful review, and we are so glad to hear you enjoyed your 3 night stay with us, the wedding and got to enjoy some of the great local attractions there are to offer. Especially the Jameson Experience it truly is a world class distillery, and if you wish to continue the whiskey experience we have over 30 Irish Whiskeys in our Lighthouse bar to sip.
In regards to the pillows your wife normally uses, is it a particular pillow or type of pillow she was looking for compared to the hyperallergic pillows we normally use, as it may be something we could carry a couple of and have on request? You can contact me at email@example.com.
Thank you also for the compliments on the quality of food, wine and service you recieved, it is what we strive to deliver every day and believe strongly in using the best quality produce available (preferably local). Paying particular attention to the smaller details such as the quality of wines we use for our house wine (not only the main list), or the specification of the Irish Beef we use, or the consistent training we give to each of our team etc. to improve our hotel to insure we can offer the best value for money.
