Had not been in over 10 years so was interested to see what it would be like. It was a work function and we went with the early bird, which at €27.95 for a 4 course meal offered exceptional value. The service was excellent and the food was fabulous, with healthy portions. cant believe I left it so long to... More

We had a great meal here Fri 6th May. We were a large group but the service and the food were super. I have never seen so many cleared plates, and that does not reflect badly on the portion size which was perfect. Myself and my husband used to eat here many years ago when we lived in Dublin and...

We stayed for just one night, but would gladly have stayed longer given the chance. The staff are so very friendly and helpful. The room was excellent and they allowed us to check in early too. The meal in the restaurant was very good - there's a good choice on the menu and a good wine list and local beers... More

Convenient to N4/M6 and a short distance from Dublin City Centre this small boutique hotel offers spacious, immaculate rooms with very comfortable beds, all the facilities a business traveller would require with secure FREE parking, very friendly and welcoming staff, and a great continental breakfast to give a great start to the business day. Very reasonable rates. Don't change anything!!!

The staff here are brilliant. I stayed here for one night with my boyfriend and every question we asked were answered with a chilled and friendly attitude. The food was lovely and the room was perfect and so so comfortable. I will definitely stay there again.

Didn't say that when booking unfortunately, so we taxied into town and ate somewhere else. The room itself was lovely, done up recently clearly. Didn't have a... More

We were here for a family birthday. Good food, service and atmosphere. Restaurant was extremely busy, yet service did not falter. The sticky toffee pudding was to die for. The chicken dish was a little dry but a request for extra gravy sorted that out.

“The bathroom is needing a bit of a refurb, if only to bring it up to the exceptional high standard found in the rest of the hotel. A minor point, though. The bathroom was perfectly functional.”
