This place offers good value for money while offering a close commute to Dublin airport. We really struggled to find it initially. It offers a safe, free parking and breakfast. There is a coffee station nearby as well. We did not find the room very clean as both our beds hair all over it. The decor of the room is... More

This has been one of the best places I've stayed during my 5 weeks backpacking through Europe. They had great staff, nice breakfast and nice rooms! I would have given it a 5 but the location is a not very safe with a bus stop on the highway as the only public transportation and the price was more expensive then... More

Stayed here for 5 nights in March. The place was a little outside of Dublin and the buses can get you directly to Dublin easily. I really enjoyed my stay here, it was clean and the staff was extremely friendly. The staff was very helpful with directions, helping us book taxis, and one employee even drove us into town with...

As a conference venue this place is quiet, comfortable and relaxed. The conference facilities are average, but accommodation is clean and very comfortable. The food is reasonably good although vegetarian options are limited and lacking imagination. Wifi is available but erratic. The grounds are well kept and pleasant to explore.

Super friendly staff and very helpful. Rooms are perfectly sized with on suite bathrooms. There is a good variety of food that is up for selection for breakfast however supper needs to be booked and is set if you are staying in for that. It is a lovely retreat center with big and beautiful gardens!

We spent 3 evenings here as part of a group trip. The peace and tranquility of the centre coupled with the comfortable rooms, good service and a wonderful breakfast made our stay most enjoyable. My only regret was that I wasn't able to drag myself out of bed earlier to take a morning walk in and around the grounds. This... More

Very impressed with accomodation with rooms good quality, decent breakfast, cheap bus journey into City Centre (takes about 45mins), Taxi €30 back which was fine when shared with others, handy to Airport. Only complaint was noise from wooden floor corridor and loud closing of doors early morning which awoke me early. Will be back.
