We stayed here as part of a tour group. We had a first floor room that was clean and smelled of fresh paint. Not the best smell, but it could have been much worse. Bathroom was nice size with enough space to put out our toiletries. Only complaint was when we checked in with our group, there was a wedding...

Had the Christmas night here and I have to say that I won't be returning. The room we were in was freezing. We asked for the heat to be turned up and we're told that our server found it very warm. The menu was lack lustre. Who wants bacon ribs at a Christmas party? ! I order the steak and...

I stayed here as part of the CIE Tour. My room was very spacious, clean and had excellent WiFi. The breakfast was buffet style with a great variety of foods and juices. Hotel is within walking distance of two pubs, one of them being the original Dirty Nelly's as well as shopping. Also, hotel is within walking distance of Bunratty...

My partner and I stayed here in July for 2 nights. On arrival the receptionist wasn't very friendly she just gave us our room and didn't feel the need to explain about breakfast times or where to go for it etc she seemed like she would prefer to have been anywhere else which was disappointing. We each had 3 treatments...

We made our way...

As other have posted, staying here you can feel like an extra in a wedding. The whole reception area I handed over to the wedding party and hotel guests have to work around them. At one time I was tempted to grab some grub and drink myself as they were displayed in the hotel public area. Accessing the bar during...

My Family and I stayed for one night (thankfully). From when we arrived we all felt disappointed from the get go. After a long journey we arrived to a car park absolutely full and we had to park quite far away from reception area. As we made our way through the car park it became apparent that there was a...

We arrived at our hotel and went to reception to check in. We had to wade through wedding guests who were having their drinks reception. This was most uncomfortable for both parties as we had to push our way through the wedding guests to get to our room. Our room was nice. Unfortunately we were given only one bath towel...

Although I'm local to the area I stayed here for one night whilst attending a wedding! The rooms are huge and very clean. The staff are incredibly friendly and no request is too big or too small. From reception, the bar, waiting service and the housekeeping team who helped me locate a missing bracelet. The service was exceptional and consistent!...
