Stayed here for two nights in mid July 2014, with family. Lovely location on the river, close to Ballina town, County Mayo, but expensive.
Breakfast was great, staff and service top notch, friendly and attentive. Hotel layout is odd because it was not purpose built but a converted building. Get your bearings on the first day and you will be fine. Spa is very nice. Rooms were large and comfortable.
Improvement points: We had one Riverside suite and one normal room. Both had very very dark bathrooms with very very low lighting and no fans/ventilation. In the Riverside suite, the dressing area where the wardrobes are was almost completely light-less. There are two spotlights in the ceiling - one was out and the second was a very very low light, basically completely dark. Showers in the bathrooms were tempremental, switching from hot to cool water every few seconds.
