“Brilliant christmas day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

My father and I had a wonderful stay at O'shea's over christmas. We arrived late on xmas eve and nowhere else in waterford was open or willing to take us, so last minute, but when I rang and spoke to Mrs. O'Shea she very kindly let us stay at her hotel even though she was having her 25 plus family over for christmas. Not only this but she made xmas breakfast and xmas dinner for us even though she had so many people to feed. I won't forget her kindness!

Our room was excellent too, with a brilliant view of the beach. We could hear the sea roaring from our room. the room itself was great, very warm and clean and with plenty of room for my Dad and I. It's literally a two minute walk to the beach from the hotel so we went for a long walk across the beach on christmas day.

I would definitely go back and the O'shea's helped to make our Christmas day very special indeed!

Dan it was a pleasure to have you & your Dad stay with us, (albeit at short notice), over Christmas when the only available flight from the UK was into Waterford. We normally do not keep guests on Christmas Day as we reserve the hotel for our family. However, in the spirit of goodwill and like Mary & Joseph in Bethlehem, we would not see anyone turned away ! We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and having you and your Dad added to the festivities. We hope that you will return to Tramore again one day - by choice! Best wishes for 2013.

We went there on a pigsback voucher. It came with a bottle of wine as part of the deal. They would not give us the bottle of wine with our dinner, only given on check out?? most unusual.

Rooms are small, no lift. Would not recommend for those with prams.
Only go if you get a bargain price as noise from nightclub/pub was loud.

Lovely woman doing the breakfast. Location is great for the beach.

Room Tip: Higher up the better as less noise I guess.

Dear Nuala McG,
Thank you for your honest review. It was our policy to give the bottle of wine on departure with the pigsback deals, as this deal was such good value- 2 nights bed & breakfast for 2 people for only €99.00 & when we pay our commission on this deal we get approx €84.00 (€21.00 per person per night for bed & full Irish Breakfast).

It is noted on our website that we do not have a lift.

Yes, we have got entertainement at the weekends during the summer season.

Thank you for you compliments to our restauntant staff - they are always cheerful & happy.

Luke Furse Contractors stayed at this hotel for 2 nights whilst attending the National Ploughing Championships and the launch of the Grassmen's Keep 'Er Lit DVD.

The rooms were first class and the service was exceptional, no one could have been more helpful. The bar had a wonderful homely atmosphere where we enjoyed some Irish country music. Would not hesitate to stay again!

I and my extended family are regular travellers to O'Sheas in Tramore, I know everyone is entitled to their opinion, but some of the comments are a bit over the top. I have never witnessed an unhelpful receptionist, bad food, dirty rooms or rudeness, and to be honest I don't pay to stay in a hotel for the view out the back windows.

You get what you pay for and the food in the restraunt is top notch, and the waitresses, Maureen is a scream and would cheer up any sour puss, as is Mary the receptionist and Josie the Barmaid. O people have a talk to yourselves, give the owners the chance to rectify any problems you may have and don't wait until your back home.

And if all else fails I'm sure there's plenty of 5 star hotels with 5 star prices that would be delighted to have you.
