At first when my husband said "the Ramada looks nice" I had to laugh a bit. Boy was I wrong! This hotel is part of Ramada's new "Encore" line of hotels. It appears to be a new brand of design hotel with an affordable price.
The rooms had wood floors and were quite spacious. The bed was comfortable and had a clean white duvet covering it - not one of those nasty, never-washed, floral bedspreads that try to hide the dirt. This was a big bonus for me. The decor was modern with clean lines.
The bathroom had a great walk-in shower and a design-style sink that was visually appealing.
We ended up eating dinner at the hotel because after walking up and down the main street of the town we discovered that the meal prices were actually more affordable at the Ramada (short of getting a hamburger somewhere). The food was modern Irish - for example, I had sausage and mash that had stacked crisped onions that added a nice texture and visual touch. It was also one of the few places we could find that had a decent selection of more traditional food.
The hotel is right around the corner from the start of the main drag through town where all the great pubs are located. Parking was free and in a private lot behind the hotel.
Only gripe would be that breakfast wasn't included and was 6.50 euro for very basic continental fare. Warm breakfasts started at 10 euro. On Sunday mornings, however, this is about the only place you'll be able to eat early - none of the cafes were open then.
