I had roast beef and my partner had chicken on chiabatta. Both meals were gorgeous and the staff were very attentive. On the second...

We stayed here for a wedding over Christmas, straight away we were met by a friendly, welcoming staff. After a quick check in it was straight to the bar. The barman (who's name was Blaine i think) was fantastic. He kept the craic going and the drink flowing. He, like some of the other staff, despite not being old, is...

We visited the Ballyliffin hotel using our Groupon voucher. We had to cancel our first date but had no problems with the hotel to arrange a new date. We arrived early & a very helpful young lady checked & found our room had not been used the night before & we could check in straight away. The room was clean,...

Our visit was arranged at short notice to attend a funeral. The management and staff went out of their way to accommodate visitors at all times of the day. A good proportion of the guests were attending for the same reason and we heard nothing but compliments about the staff going the "extra mile" and they seemed to sense what...
