It take long to get the food, the food s Didn't taste so good. The meat was dry, the pasta have a bad taste and the kids meal was tiny and cold. Not recommended at all. You better eat a fast food across the road

As a traveler from the U.S., I have long come to expect the worst of my morning of arrival in Europe - arrive very early morning after the red-eye flight and then being greeted with the typical "your room is ready, we can take your luggage up, but you cannot have your room until 4 PM..." But now we are... More

Great service and a lovely bowl of chowder! We called in for lunch and it was perfect for what we wanted. Its a great alternative to the packed cafes downtown. There is also a lovely garden outside with tables and chairs where dogs are welcome. No complaints from us!

From the welcome, to the room, staff and service, perfect. Central to the town, a short walk to the beach and golf course. Wonderful welcome and traditional irish music on our stay. Cannot welcome high enough. John and Joan, our hosts , made us feel like family.
