We spent three nights here with a tour group. Our room is large and comfortable. Great service. Fresh ice and water are placed in the room each day. It's just a short walk to town with lots of shops and restaurants. I would book again on my own.

We were happy with our stay in this nice hotel. The typical Irish breakfast portions were so large, I had to ask for a half order. The food at the restaurant and at their bar was good. Staff was friendly.

We spent three nights at this lovely, old small hotel. The staff was friendly and most helpful in any way.

I stayed in a family room with my husband and two children, The hotel is in a great location as it is so central. While it doesn't have a pool, its sister hotel across the road has a pool and we could get vouchers to use it free of charge - which was great. The room itself was enormous so... More
