Great location just outside of the city. Booked a deal with dinner and breakfast included and found both of good quality. Hotel has a boutique feel, although large for this description.

We enjoyed our stay here on our honeymoon. Staff were so accommodating and the food was excellent. Quirky furnishings that was set up for Halloween at the time was a lovely touch. I would recommend this hotel as a base to see the beautiful connemara coastline and wild Atlantic way which they supplied a map for Definitely will book again.
