Lovely hotel and great service. Great venue for a Christmas party! Great atmosphere and entertainment on the night. Efficient and friendly staff. We watched the Connacht match in the bar and there are lots of seating areas and wide screen tvs so viewing was not impeded. The bar was very busy and the food looked delicious. Bar staff very friendly.

This was my second visit to the hotel this year and I have to say that it was another fantastic experience.
