Really happy with our weekend break here. The location and beautiful setting of this hotel gave everything we wanted for a relaxing get away. Our room was very comfortable and a nice size. The country night stillness gave me the most restful sleep I had in a while. Then waking up and opening the curtains to a beautiful view overlooking the lovely gardens leading down to the river was a great start to our day. Breakfast had a good choice, served in a homely atmosphere.
The staff were very nice, and very helpful in providing information on what to do in the area (which is plenty). We chose a day trip into Kinsale, with a quick detour into Bandon on the way back. An enjoyable day. Back in the hotel, the bar offered a lovely relaxing drink by the open fire. The menu for evening meal had a bit of choice and the food served was excellent.
Will return there again in the summer to better enjoy the gardens and the country walks around the hotel.
