Staff were nice. Very helpful. Room was very pleasant and breakfast was fine. But generally-speaking, this place seems to have seen better days. We were there on a Sunday. No dinner available - had to drive into another town where we did in fact have a nice meal.

Wow, probably because we are not used to settings like this where 2 rivers meet we were blown away by the actual setting. The breakfasts were awesome, wholesome and extremely filling. The only negative about the venue is that the room disappointed and was not exactly what was advertised. We traveled as a family of my wife my 11 year...

Absolutely loved our stay here, and can't stop talking about it. Myself and 2 others stayed for one night in a family room, we were delighted to have stumbled upon such a delightful place. We loved the communal deck, dvd's and coffee area. Staying here felt like a home from home and was made even better by the friendly staff....

We were there in early October and the decks were no longer in use. But, I could tell it would be a wonderful location to eat or just have a drink and watch the melding of two rivers. The reception was warm and welcoming. The cordial gal who greeted us did a great job of filling us in on the...

It's a friendly pub with great food and music, plus it sits by a kind of magical place, where two rivers meet. It's also close to Avoca, where Ballykissangel was filmed. Avoca Hand Weavers is a must stop. Didn't stay in the hotel.

This was the first time I stayed since management changed hands. The second floor rear deck is a nice addition and gives an even better view of the rivers. I missed the kitschy gift shop from before, but it's lovely to see local artists work offered as souvenirs instead. The room was comfortable - wish there were more towels. Be...

We stayed for one night in August. Very friendly and helpful staff, great, quiet location but with everything you might need. Clean and comfortable room, good wifi, lovely breakfast. Close to Wicklow hills, and sweet little town. Overall, excellent value, would recommend to friends, would definitely like to stay again.
