We were still waiting on some of our party to arrive so... More

Stayed for one night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We arrived for afternoon tea and were really looked after by Lucas and Josephine who catered to our every need. We followed with a lovely spa treatment and then just enough time to shower before dinner in the La Perla restaurant which was gorgeous! Jessica who brought the very important bottle... More

I have stayed here on two occasions, I have found the hotel to be faultless on both visits. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff are excellent. The location is both convenient and relaxing. Will most certainly be returning.

This beyond beautiful hotel was one of our first stops in Ireland! It was the Ireland we came to see! After a hectic time in Dublin and trying to get used to driving in Ireland, we needed this breath of fresh air! We thought we had died and gone to Heaven. Beautiful walking paths, having dinner on the patio was... More
