After some trouble booking in, Frances the Sales Manager, worked on our behalf to sort us out. We arrived to a lovely big airy room, which was so comfortable. Bar was great, had lovely food, met great people.
Restaurant was lovely also, food fantastic for dinner and good selection for breakfast which is great for us as my husband can't eat pork so Irish breakfasts are out for him, but unlike some Irish hotels we have stayed in, he had plenty of options. Overall the staff are friendly and helpful, with the exception of 1 girl on reception on our first day who had a bit of an attitude, but that doesn't take from the great break we had there.
The only other thing I would say is be prepared for a long walk, the hotel is very spread out and our room was a loooooong walk from reception, which in itself is ok but when you room card doesn't work and you have to keep walking to and from reception with a grumpy tired 2 yr old its not great.
