The most outstanding aspect is the "can do" manner of the staff ...any query or request for help received a helpful reply in a natural (not over formalised) manner
The views are beautiful ...the back of the hotel looks across to the Co Clare coastline and if you are lucky the arran islands.
the beach at the hotel is of stones but not far up the road there is a sandy beach... a few min in a car and at a push it would be possible to walk (maybe 30 min)
There is untidy undergrowth surrounding the pathways down to the stoney beach but I think it is needed to filter the strong winds as there are very neat lawns nearer the hotel
the leisure centre is fine but more family leisure centre than superspa but staff again very nice
there are sofas to relax on just outside leisure centre and the views out the windows are very good.
the food is of a very high standard ...well presented with local choices and not drowned in heavy sauces.
We were offered a menu with options to pay extra for items on the a la carte menu ...not necessary as we were very happy with the choices on the menu offered for the 5
course dinner (four courses plus tea/coffee)
Most parts of the hotel seem to have been recently updated with light colours .but you can see in places darker furnishings.. they have a large amount of paintings prints and also old photos on the walls ...
There is a large library area but they have a large collection of old books (some collector items) and coffee table travel books but I did not see any sign of an area for sharing books as many holiday hotels have (exchange a read book for one left by another guest) With many of the guests worrying about weight in suitcases it might be a useful addition.
