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!

Very pleasant couple of days in a stunning part of the country. A small hotel, or an enhanced guest house. Our room was in the modern half of the building. Bit noisy with a do going on downstairs. Food was good, without being outstanding. Staff are lovely.

Spin a lovely weekend here and although it was cold there was a lovely cosy fire in the reception that really welcomed us. The staff were really friendly and nice and the room was comfortable and clean. The furniture in the rooms was a rustic pine but very comfortable and the bed gave the best night sleep I've had anywhere.... More
