We were down visiting some friends in Dublin and decided we'd stay here for a night before travelling back home. I had emailed the hotel when I had booked to say we were looking forward to staying and celebrating our engagement but unfortunately nobody emailed us to acknowledge it had been received.
We were checked in by Robert who was very friendly and approachable. Our room was out of this world: For a standard double it definitely looked like a deluxe room with a stunning view of the sea and Ireland's Eye.
The restaurant didn't really suit us and it seemed to be busy with a family party; one negative is that our room was on the other side of the restaurant and to get through reception we had to pass by this and it felt very awkward; especially when we weren't exactly dressed to suit the attire of the restaurant.
The room unfortunately at night was stuffy despite the temperature setting in the room being at a minimum.
Breakfast was a little on the pricey side (we had got this info from the website, we weren't told about breakfast on check-in) so we decided against it. We checked out the following morning with Rachel, who said "congratulations" just as we were leaving which was the only way I knew they had got my email.
Despite all this we had a lovely stay and would consider going back again.
