*This was a wedding stay, my reviews are always a bit more flexible when I'm staying for a wedding!
As well, this was my sister-in-law's wedding, so I did have certain hopes that all would go well.
We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights, arriving after the wedding and checking in with most other guests; we were able to check in without issue, drop our bags and head to the cocktail hour, which was held on the outdoor patio overlooking Trim Castle. On a beautiful day, the view absolutely cannot be beat.
The reception room was lovely, great service from the waitstaff. I found my seabass option to be mediocre, but my husband really enjoyed his lamb. Staff did a wonderful presentation to the top table with their entrees, but even after being told that the bride wasn't at the table, they still brought the plates out and made the big presentation...which she missed.
The next day we had a "barbecue" in a function room off the lobby, the term barbecue being not at all what we would expect in the States. This meal, along with the two breakfasts we had while there, confirmed my feelings that the food in the hotel is mediocre at best.
The room itself was smallish but comfortable, beautiful bathroom but very difficult climbing in and out of the bathtub/shower because it was so high off the floor. Like that the windows open. Hotel was close enough to Slane, Newgrange, and other Co. Meath attractions, about 40 minutes to Dublin.
I would like to point out some lovely customer service :
*my other sister-in-law was due to have a baby the day after the wedding, and my two nieces were left in our care for the day. We lost the key to their room, but they recognized my nieces at the front desk and remembered their parents, and provided me another key to their room without issue.
* I lost my camera - who knows where or it wouldn't have been lost- and it hadn't been found by the time we checked out. I called the hotel the next day on a whim, and it had been found and held at the front desk. My mother-in-law was gracious enough to drive down and pick it up for me.
