Foyles is the genuine Victorian hotel experience. One of the best old family hotels I have stayed at. Lovely hotel, older style rooms, beautiful lounge, restaurant and an attached bar. The breakfast was wonderful. The staff were as good as it gets and wifi excellent. Absolutely perfect. I will bring my family here.

Foyles hotel came to our rescue when Alcock & Brown cancelled our 5 night stay with them but completely denied it. Foyles gave us a room which was very comfortable and had everything we needed in it. The breakfast was gorgeous, even had gluten free soda bread for me. they were beyond professional but friendly. nothing was too much trouble. the food in the restaurant at night was so good, we ate there 3 nights in a row...and again, for me being coeliac and having to have gluten free food, they couldn't have been more accommodating, unlike the previous hotel. unbelievably, the were cheaper too. i would stay here again in a heartbeat. there was more of an atmosphere here than the other one. thank you to you all for making the rest of our holiday bearable and enjoyable.

Room Tip: if you want good rooms, lovely food, great people, a seperate bar with music etc, then stay here

We've eaten in the amazing Marconi restaurant on a few trips but this trip we stayed and weren't disappointed. The hotel (thankfully!) is not a modern revamped bland box. It is a family run warm friendly comfortable country hotel. Lovely helpful and professional staff. Clean good sized rooms with a mattress you will want to take home and plenty of hot water for a wonderful shower or deep bath any time of day. Breakfast is delicious and varied. The food in the Marconi just seems to get better every time - we went for the fish dishes on this trip and I'm still talking about them! The cosy and wonderful Mullarky's bar was equally welcoming with bartender Lulu's wonderful mix of music playing in the background - many an hour was enjoyed. The weather was awful but I still rate it as one of the best breaks we've had thanks to all at Foyle's. I will continue to recommend this to anyone going west and can't wait to go back.

Our stay was very comfortable and enjoyable. The bedrooms were spacious and luxurious. Food in the Marconii Restaurant on the premises was top notch. Entertainment in Mullarkeys bar, also on the premises, was fantastic also. A very enjoyable stay. I look forward to returning there.
