Myself and my girlfriend stayed here during the last weekend of August when there seemed to be quite a lot of young families at the hotel enjoying the last of the summer holidays.
Despite the hotel staff appearing to be very busy during our stay we felt very welcomed by the reception staff.
We were also welcomed and treated well by the waiting staff when we ate in the restaurant in the evening. My girlfriend can be a very fussy eater but she loved all six different courses (3 courses each over two nights), which was a positive. I myself had the same meal both nights as I enjoyed it so much the first night and my steak was cooked to perfection.
The room was spacious and clean with a very modern en-suite and also had a very comfortable large double bed.
The hotel itself is only about 3 km outside of the town, about a 20 minute walk if you can be bothered (we weren't) or there is an hourly shuttle bus (bus eireann) from outside the hotel to the centre of town.
All in all our experience was a very good one and we will definitely be back again.
