As far as I am concerned a hotel is a place to lay your head at the end of an interesting day, as long as it's tidy, clean and peaceful, that'll do for me.
The Falls Hotel exceeded my expectations. We were staying for the purpose of allowing me to explore the local area. The hotel was easy to find and visible from various high points in Ennistymon, not surprisingly really, it's huge.
The check in was easy and quick, no bother whatsoever. The room was more than sufficent and the onsite activities were more than enough for anyone who didnt want to brave the elements.
This place is situated in a beautiful part of Ireland, a quaint village not too far from Lahinch, with a beautiful waterfall visible from the front of the hotel and the bar area.
We were offered afternoon tea upon arrival in the bar area which was great.
The swimming facilities were perfect for exercising or relaxing.
There are other leisure facilities but we didnt get chance to try them.
For a 2 euro deposit you get a towel. The changing rooms have lockers but they do not lock so avoid taking valuables with you.
The staff were polite and helpful at all times.
The Thai restaurant located within the hotel is stunning... the food was beautiful and reasonably priced. We had a platter to start and then individual dishes. We couldnt finish what we had and Im a monster when it comes to food.
The bar served amazing beer battered fish and chips along with salad... excellent.
We spent one evening in the games room, played around 15 games of pool and had just as many pints.
Breakfast is served in the cascades area down stairs. Its a self serve buffet with full Irish on offer or for those who look after their hearts a small bit more, there is a selection of fresh fruits, cereals and pastries. Or, just try it all......
Great location, great food... perfect break away
