Our overnight stay at the four star Garryvoe Hotel was an excellent choice recently.
Nestled on the beautifull shoreline overlooking Ballycotton Bay and the Historic Lighthouse, this was a superb haven for our one night treat, (my daughter and I.)
On check in- the Receptionist Tracy was welcomming and efficient in handling our reservation as there was a slight mix up, an oversight on the phone booking us into their sister hotel in nearby Ballycotton. However Tracy gracefully contacted the other Hotel to sort it out, as she couldn't find our reservation on her system and offered us a good rate and lovely room.
Later in the evening.
We enjoyed a delicious fish dish from the extensive evening menu in the athmostpheric Bar. Soft lighting and and a very nice waiter Mark added to our excellent service.
We asked Mark what he would reccommend, He said the ''fish was fresh'' and he was right! so right - that we could taste the seaweed from the fish. A large appetizing serving of crispy fries , mushy peas and freshly made tarter sauce topped with a jucy wedge of lemon perfectly married the dish together.
After a stroll on the beach outside the Hotel we ordered a bottle or Merlot and retired to the upstairs seating area to savour the setting sun slowely slide beyond the horizon, shadowing the incomming tide.
The bedroom was clean and comfy. and offered us a peacefull and refreshing nights sleep.
Breakfast was served with fresh fruit juice and a selection of cereal with the option of a cooked Irish Breakfast of our choice. Gleaming pots of coffee and tea was the trade mark of a well presented breakfast.
Crispy white table-cloths and polished cutlery enhanced our dining experience, the waitress was plesant and accommodating to all the early morning breakfast guests.
We left with a sweet taste for a return trip to Garryvoe Hotel in the not too distant future. This family run hotel is a prime example of Good management, professional staff and Good Guest Relations, and the location is superb.
