My daughter was married at this resort in November 2013 and we were very pleased that she chose this location. The room rates were very reasonable and our seaview room was beautiful! The beds were the most comfortable one we had during our 2 week stay in Ireland and the U.K.
We had been in Ireland for several days already and had learned that restaurant service is very different than in the U.S. There was a mix up in the restaurant when the bride, mother in law and myself were to have afternoon tea but the resort made it right.
The wedding coordinator was very good, venue was beautiful, and the food, service and decor at reception was lovely.
We did have a very bad experience in the on site spa which had my daughter in tears. My manicurist was very sweet but the manicure lasted barely 2 days. My daughters tech was extremely brusk and downright rude. I have written the spa but, to date, have received no apology or even acknowledgement of my e mail.
Bottom line, stay here, enjoy the beach and comfortable beds but give the spa a pass.
