A great hidden gem: fantastically decorated, charming large rooms, low cost, great view, perfect host: Cyril knows all the facts about the local scene as well as Ireland as a whole, and one could talk to him all day. Gay friendly with advice on local hangouts and events. Cyril even too the time to guide me to the best tourist locations and make sure i hit all the highlights. It is a short walk from town but I would recommend a cab later at night, I tried walking home at 2am and I was a little spooked by a few drunk people and ran most of the way. A bit hard to find based on directions, but I think this is "an Irish thing" (the directions were very visual and guidepost-oriented, and hard to figure out---but everywhere I drove in Ireland was impossible to navigate).
