Very romantic settings, and great staff, easy to get around. Very cute cottages. Room was neat and clean when we arrived. Parking was a little messy due to customers not understanding how to park properly.

Thank you for your feedback K1904TPhollym. Our expansive beaches are certainly a must-see while at Tigh-Na-Mara. I would recommend our stand-alone, rustic cottages with no direct neighbours for a quieter stay in the future . Hopefully we see you again. Sincerely, Jessica

We were looking for a hotel and remembered that we stayed here at Christmas about 10 years prior.

New rooms in buildings on water excellent. Older studio rooms need redo. Spa is good but bookings way ahead can limit value of stay. Location is good and close enough to town for access to other amenities. Restaurant good, but limited menu
