We booked this accommodation because of the reviews we read on Trip Advisor. It met all of our expectations and we have enjoyed our first two nights of a three week trip to Ireland. Rooms well appointed, clean and ready when we arrived. Easy check-in with friendly welcome. Breakfast room not overcrowded and good selection of hot and cold items to choose from .

Just returned from 2 night stay, staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them!!! Great to experience such good customer service! We booked 2 rooms which unfortunately were not on the same floor but this was not a major problem!
Rooms we clean modern and had a fantastic shower!!!
On our first night at around 2:30am there was a party in the room next door that kept us awake but this was only a minor irritant on an otherwise lovely stay!

Had booked 12 girls to stay here for a hen last weekend and we were not disappointed. The rooms were lovely and spacious and the staff from reception to the bar were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was lovely as was the leisure centre. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends. Big thanks from Kilkenny for a great weekend.

We stayed here for 2 nights during a 8 day vacation in Ireland. The room was very spacious and clean. The only bad thing I can think of was our room was not ocean view and faced the street behind the hotel. But we did not mind. The hotel was in walking view of mostly everything in town. If you are staying here make a reservation at Fishy Fishy for dinner!

Arrived to find used towels and crockery in our room. Arriving back to our room at 16.45 on saturday we found housekeeping in the process of refreshing our room. We left the hotel at 10.30 am to relax but were amazed that housekeeping had only started cleaning our room

Dear Patricia J,

Please accept my sincere apologies for the shortfalls in housekeeping standards you experienced during your stay with us. I have spoken to our accommodation services manager Tina Dempsey in this regard. Tina has asked me to convey her apologies to you.

The initial problem with your room on arrival was due to the fact that the previous guest departed a day earlier than expected. The accommodation team serviced the room that morning prior to this change and unfortunately due to a breakdown accommodation services were not informed that the room was now to be re-serviced as a departure room. Again our sincere apologies that your first impression of the hotel was a negative.

We prioritise departure and arrival rooms on a daily basis in order that we may have rooms available to our guests without delay on arrival. For this reason guest rooms which are staying over with us are sometimes serviced in the afternoon. Again we are sorry if this caused you an inconvenience during your stay.

Yours sincerely,

Breda Keane Shortt
General Manager
