My wife, myself and my parents spent the night there, we got 2 rooms. My parents bed was nice and firm but our mattress felt like a 400 pound man had laid there for a month. We would start out with both of us near the edges of the bed but found we rolled toward the middle in a matter of minutes. More of an amusing quirk than any sort of problem. We just went with it and snuggled all night. I slept very well, thanks to Carlsberg and Stella. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. You feel like you are staying with family (if you like your family).
I will definitely be back there someday of this I am sure because the restaurant and pub were great. I mean really great. Trust me, I drove to Wicklow just for the lamb, I know food. The first thing that was great was that on the back of the menu was the list of local farms where all the food came from, all locally sourced. I got the steak, rib eye I believe (Antrim beef) and I kid you not when I say you could cut it with your fork. So flavorful, so juicy, so delicious. After dinner I went to the pub. The pub was warm and cozy with very helpful and friendly staff. Again you feel like you are in your uncles living room (your nice uncle)
The hotel is also walking distance to the Eurospar where if you, like us, were passing though on a road trip you can stock up on drinks and snacks. Across the street is one of the most beautiful little park/harbor areas. With paths and even a small stream flowing out to the sea. I could have stood there for hours and hours, extremely beautiful, which is really saying something because 99% of the country is beautiful but this place really stood out.
If I had one complaint, being a Catholic, I would have rather stayed at the Derry Arms but hey, this is not the forum for politics.
