Myself and friend went here for 1 night after buying the €69 one night B&B deal on Dealrush.ie (4 Star Abbey Hotel 1 Night B&B + Bottle of Sparkling Wine on Arrival + Dressing Gown and Slippers in your room PLUS Full Access to Award Winning Spa & Leisure Facilities). Having read on Tripadvisor some comments about other hotels who participate in these deals, I was a little anxious, but we were not disappointed. The outside of the hotel and the grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. The inside is not a modern, contempory style but is more in keeping with the Abbey theme and the ruins of the abbey on the ground with quite old-fashioned carpets and paintings but everything again is very well-maintained and clean and the style grew on me. Hats off to the staff though, from the moment we walked in the door right through to check-out the next day, each individual I spoke with was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. At one point my friend rang the front desk to report a smell of cigarette smoke in the corridor and when I left the room to go to the car I met the manager in the hallway who appeared genuinely concerned and was out doing his own little investigation. It was good to see some action being taken. Another high point of our stay was the food. We had ciabattas from the bar when we arrived and then had dinner in the hotel later that evening and I found the food excellent, definitely proper restaurant standard and presentation. I had a goats cheese starter and lamb mains whilst my friend had scallops and black pudding with apple puree for starters and also the lamb for mains and I couldn't find fault with any of the dishes. The lamb was partcularly good. We couldn't fit in dessert but had coffee and the Irish coffee was excellent as it also was when we ordered expresso and black from the bar earlier in the day. Unfortunately we didn't get time to visit the leisure facilities so I can't comment but overall, I would definitely visit again, even if it was just for a meal.
