We would echo the comments made by others this month - why so out of tune with previous guests. They were unhelpful and couldnt have been less interested in their guests. The food was good but overpriced (7.50 Euro for a ice cream dessert) and was eclipsed by the Spinnaker Bar round the corner which was great in every way (good food,music and friendly service). The room (15) was nothing like the picture on the website and we too had to pay upfront from a disinterested bar tender. We tried to get a hairdryer on two occasions but they were unable to find one at all! No-one checked to see whether all was well and the owner was much more interested in chatting to the local dignatories and monied guests. Overall very dissapointing and expensive for what it was - we would suggest staying somewhere else in Dunmore East which is a lovely village - we would eat at the Spinnaker Bar.
