We spent two nights in November. Top rate comfortable bed and spacious, clean room. The hotel is in a perfect location to walk around town so no worries about getting home after hitting the pubs. We are looking forward to a return visit.

This was my favorite hotel while traveling the southwest of Ireland. Rooms were very affordable and had everything you'd need, while also feeling super comfortable, clean and newly renovated. Free breakfast was subpar but the rest of the stay was great.
