Attended a wedding here. Civil ceremony room could do with a lick of paint. Food was gorgeous though!!! Had a lovely day! Rooms were good but the only thing is the walls were thin and our neighbours were a bit loud and there was no bottles of water in the room only glasses beside the tap which was strange for... More

We stayed here two nights ago, as we were attending a wedding at this hotel. The receptionist was very nice, efficient, friendly. The room was a bit drab, when you think it was supposed to be a superior room. There was a dreadful background noise, like a huge fan going. We discovered it was a huge machine, something to do...

My friend and I spent 5 days at the hotel, having booked a National Holidays coach trip to explore a little more of the country. We were late arriving due to a problem with the ferry but the hotel laid on an excellent buffet for our late arrival. The hotel is lovely, set in a great location and the staff... More

Returned this week from National Holidays Emerald Isle Explorer. The food and accommodation and facilities at this hotel are above average, but the catering of the evening meal for coach parties is unprofessional and long winded perhaps as a result of a conflict between perfectionist cooks and the need to cater to a large group at one time. Consequently other... More

What a pleasant surprise. Really enjoyed our one night away! Staff so friendly and nice. Special mention deserved by the pool staff who went out of their way to care for my child who grazed his toes. Staff at breakfast buffet couldn't do enough. Sat out in the balcony after breakfast while the children played in the complementary Simpsons bouncy... More

This is the hotel I think every person who wants to experience "The Irish Welcome" should stay. I was with a wedding party, and I was looking after my elderly mother. The evening meal was very good spoilt for choice I changed my mind about four times before I made a final decision. ( The evening waiting staff were very... More
