Great location for airport arrival and as resting place for day trips elsewhere. Room was clean and comfortable and even though we couldn't get an early morning check they did have our room ready 2 hours early. Had one cold shower and the water leaked out due to poor design.

Look forward to a wonderful stay at a charming Irish Hotel... The staff is stellar, friendly, and treated us like family. We arrived the end of March at the beginning of our month long stay in Ireland and ended there as well. Close to the airport. We will definitely stay there next year when we return for our 4th trip... More

This place is undergoing a renovation. My kids were in a room that had been renovated, so it looked nice but no A/C. Our room looked like something out of an old horror movie but the A/C worked fine. The hotel is very spread out - our room was on the last hallway at the end - it was a... More

Upgraded my room without me asking, beautiful king room, shower a bit iffy but just needs a bit of repair. Friendly bar, lots of activity there. Restaurant was closed for upgrade, but bar menu was sufficient and tasty. Breakfast was very good too.

Booked family into what was once a charming property, and I was embarrassed by the choice.
