Just attended a friends wedding last week I must say from start to finish it was excellant. Staff were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for you, bar staff were very efficient and friendly especially the older gentleman behind the bar who seemed to be there 24/7. Excellant food, staff, outdoor area, views and spacious rooms. Keep up the great... More

Perfectly located country house hotel beside possibly the best beach and the best golf course in Ireland. Wonderfully friendly staff, good food, great place to unwind after a day out. Hotel has been refurbished to a very high standard. It now hosts many functions and can be recommended for these. I spend about 150 nights each year in hotels around... More

Last minute trip with our 3 dogs for a 3 day break. Hotel was very pleasant and friendly but the room was quite small and above the bar. Although there was some bar noise it did not go on very late. The food was plentiful and good quality but not a lot of choice for the evening meal but the... More

We only stayed one night whilst touring around Western Ireland and the hotel was pleasant enough. The room was spacious and tidy and the hotel was welcoming. Reception was a bit disorganised and all over the place as they had a big event coming up, which didn't leave a great impression. I was a bit disappointed by the food, though,... More

Delightfully peaceful & friendly hotel. Staff are very friendly & the hotel has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Rooms are spotlessly clean and beds are comfortable and crisp. Stayed with two dogs at no extra charge & the hotel is close to beautiful beaches for them to have a good run. I will definitely be back!
