Booked night here at the beginning of our drive Down the Wild Atlantic Way. Good clean and tidy room, very tasty meal in the bar downstairs and a good breakfast the next morning. The bed was a little hard for my liking but that's just personal preference. Apparently there was a wedding on in the function room and the owner... More

From the second you are warmly greeted at check-in, to departure, nothing is too much trouble. A family-run establishment, from daughter Séana at reception, Mairead and Charlie hosting throughout the hotel, and Dara at the bar. The... More

Owners and management a pleasure to deal with, Shauna great at reception! Stunning food and wonderful waitresses, lovely barstaff in keelin and Ethin. A clean and relaxing vibe right on the beach situated in a beautiful coastal village can't recomend this little haven enough.

We recently visited the restaurant in the beach hotel for my grandmother's 91st birthday where we received 1st class service from the moment we telephoned to book our table until we eventually decided to go home. The food was outstanding and mairead and her staff couldn't have been more kind and helpful. Granny was given a lovely comfortable chair and... More

Just returned from a long weekend here as part of a large wedding group and had a fantastic time. Lovely, friendly, clean hotel just a hop and a skip from the glorious Beach and a short drive to get back on the Atlantic Way. Food in both the Bar and the Restaurant was good quality and with enough choices and... More
