Have stayed here a few times over the last few years. It has always been a very welcoming and friendly place to stay. It is a small hotel(room wise) - no leisure facility or swimming pool but if you are not into that and prefere the outdoors it is a great place to explore the beautiful surrounding area. The restaurant seems to get better every year.(Eat early in the evening or after the family rush for a more relaxing meal without kids). We had beautiful a beautiful steak and Monks as a main and could not fault the meal. Service was especially good and even the new staff seemed to know us by name after the first day.
The rooms are nice and clean - with one of the best views you will get anywhere. Only downside is the bed is not a kingsize bed but I suppose for €35 per head per night this is still really good value for money. It is not a 5 star but I would prefere to stay here anyday just for the welcoming feeling we got from everyone. Thank you again Barleycove!!
