Spent two nights here last weekend and we really enjoyed it. There is private parking around the back of the hotel for guests. We received a very warm welcome at reception, and got a room on the first floor. The room itself was small and was dominated by the dark frame of a four-poster bed. Lighting wasn’t great, nor was hanging clothes storage. We had no view from our room except a slated angled roof down under us. The room and bathroom were very clean, as was the whole hotel, but the bathroom definitely would benefit from an upgrade. There was the usual hospitality tray in our room and bottled water, which is always very welcome. Sleep quality was excellent on both nights, and the breakfast was very good. Because there were only a few guests staying, hot breakfasts were cooked to order rather than the usual self-service. It was exceptionally warm at the weekend (thankfully!) and air conditioning is not something we are used to in Ireland, but we definitely would have benefitted from it on this occasion. We did have a look at the leisure centre and had intended using the pool but we were so busy sightseeing on both days that we just collapsed into bed at the end of both days! We dined in the hotel on our first evening (it was part of an online deal) and the 3-course meal we had was quite substantial. The waiter was particularly good, considering he was running the show on his own on Saturday evening and was getting demands from everywhere. We were not sure if this was normally the case, or if some staff just hadn't shown up. Food in this hotel is very good, staff are really friendly and it all made for a lovely stay. Cahirciveen is a great base to use for touring around the Iveragh Peninsula. There is plenty to be seen and lots of lovely places to visit. It is a much bigger town than you might expect and there are some nice restaurants there if you would like a change from eating in your hotel. As we checked out we were given a goody bag with two bottles of water and two packets of chewy mints for our journey home. This is really a nice touch. Before we left Cahirciveen we just had to call into Banks newsagents in the main street – they sell the most delicious ice-cream. We were last here three years ago and we had decided that if we ever came back, we would get some of that ice-cream. It is probably the nicest ice-cream in Ireland, it is creamy and yummy and definitely worth a try!
