Beautiful stay in this hotel 6/11/15 for 2 nights. Food was amazing. Spa treatment is a must! Its about 1mile from Loughrea itself which is a lovely town. Saturday night we went to a pub with live music and the place was buzzing, Great atomsphere. Would definitely recommend it to anyone, especially couples.
