Last time we were here the course was in it's infancy and the changes are fantastic. A mature, very well maintained beautiful course is well drained, so much so that the heavy rain barely changed the dry pleasant footing we encountered. The hotel is splendid, with well trained staff, and our room was spacious with comfortable beds and pillows and... More

My wife and I had a 2 night stay including dinner. This is a fantastic hotel set in 300 acres of land and lake with an excellent looking golf course. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive. The room was perfect for the trip and had everything we needed. I would recommend the Cuin spa if you have the time.... More

We stayed here as wedding guests in July. The Room: We stayed in a suite which was extremely comfortable, clean and airy. There was a large seating area and balcony. Rooms had robes, fridge, tea/coffee and safe. Shower was good. They also did a turndown service. The Staff: Check in was quick and painless. We arrived at 3pm and got... More

We recently stayed in the Slieve Russell hotel for a wedding of a friend and we were happy to have had all the comforts of a hotel that you would expect. Courteous staff, well appointed rooms, good bars, a decent morning breakfast and a superb location for a large friends and family wedding.

Last review very unfair. Here with 14 "lads" on same day for a golf weekend . This is a big, busy and brash hotel with multiple weddings and functions so expect lots of people. Grounds are immaculate and lovely walks. This hotel is not quaint and quiet and if you want that- keep searching. Hotel and grounds are spotless. Golf... More

This hotel is in the hands of administrators at the minute and certainly feels like it. The hotel looks beautiful from the outside but once you approach the front door to get into reception you have to negotiate your way through clouds of cigarette smoke and butts all over the ground.
