The evening meals are perfect, tasty, good looking, breakfasts are OK as well. Rooms are nice enough, mostly sea view, staff is nice! Only disadvantage I can say, that the walls are paper thin, you can hear EVERYTHING what is happening in the neighbouring room. You can understand even your neighbours talking! Except of it I liked staying in this...

Read pleasant review about this hotel, but was very disappointed. Reception - depending on which staff you spoke to. Janna was very rude, unwelcoming and unprofessional. Breakfast - staff were very friendly and pleasant Room - 428 was unacceptable, not suitable as guest room,noise from storeroom the whole night.

Lovely hotel and lovely food. Wedding on the same day as my arrival which made it extra busy but nobody's fault. Spa and leisure centre really lovely but a little small, not much wiggle room. Room was nice but a little dated, need to get new TV's and better signal.

I stayed here for two nights from 23rd Jan 2017 on a business trip. It is about an hours drive South of Dublin airport and offers plenty of free parking. The receptionist - Rachel - was very helpful in splitting my final bill between resonate and business costs and even allowed me to pay in GBP. A facility only better...

We stayed here for a 3 night break. My husband booked 3 nights bed & breakfast with one evening meal. We had a nice, big family room which was very clean. There was a travel cot for the baby made up when we arrived but when I felt the bottom it was so uncomfortable. The base was like a broken...
