Very enjoyable weekend break, even though Connacht didn't win. The package included two nights bed and breakfast and one evening meal for €149.
The one problem I did have was upon check in I was told that this rate was based on two people sharing and that if I wanted to stay there I would have to pay an extra €35 per night as a "supplement". I made it clear (or at least I thought I did) to a lady called Emma on the phone when booking the room that I was on my own. The rate quoted was €149. When I asked to speak to her upon my arrival, she saw my displeasure and said she could do the package for €169. Inflation I guess. She was however very mannerly and was quick to resolve the situation.
As well as Emma, the maître d’ and the night porter (the Polish one, he's in his 40's? but very personable and obliging) were stand out members of staff. Could not do enough for you.
But one thing guys, if your booking a smoking room, ask for an ashtray at reception as when I arrived in my smoking room, I couldn't find one. Was it too much to expect?
