The hotel itself is located right next to St. McCartans Cathedral and this can be viewed from some hotel rooms, other views are also very pleasant. The food was very good and my hotel room made me feel like a princess!! Four poster bed... More

Visited for a family bar meal. Hotel was extremely busy for a Sunday, but we were dealt with promptly. Staff were courteous though I would have liked them to check if we needed anything during our meal. The food was plentiful, fresh and a good selection, €120 for 6 adults (two courses). The hotel has recently been redecorated and is... More
