It did have wooden floors which I'd never seen in a hotel before. Staff were very helpful.... breakfast was gorgeous. There was complimentary still and sparkling in the room. The only complaint if...

I did not make check in easy as we had 4 rooms booked for different durations and arriving on different days but the reception staff handled it with ease. Very helpful staff especially when we booked a table for 15 people for dinner, this quickly grew to 25 which was not a problem for the staff. Some of our party... More

I stayed here recently for work - they have their own car park to the rear but it's impossible to get a space until late evening & they're quite tight spaces! Otherwise you have to park in public car park next door. Nice friendly receptionist checked me in, first glance at room very basic but clean! Then I opened bathroom... More

Nice hotel, good location, rooms are clean, good value if you get a midweek deal (€79 for B&B for 2 people). Drink in the bar is a bit pricey, more expensive that Dublin, but worth the extra few bob if Tom is on, really nice barman. Try avoid getting a room near the lane way into the car park, really...
