Hotel is beautiful and so are the grounds but was not impressed with the size of the room, was expecting a bit more for the £107 we paid. Although great location as it is walking distance to the shops etc.

Quaint hotel bursting with character. Friendly and professional staff, and an incredible seasonal dinner menu with the option of formal or casual dining. Has quite an interesting historical significance in the town as it was once an esteemed place of learning, and was well within walking distance to Droghesa town centre. 15 minute drive to the Battle of Boyne museum/site,...

As a past pupil of the Christian Brothers it was an experience to stay in what was the Brothers accommodation. The staff were excellent and I have no hesitation in saying that the food at dinner time in the restaurant section was amongst the best ever.G8 location.

We recently went here for Sunday lunch. The soup when it arrived was barely hot enough at €7 it was way over priced. Service was slow, albeit was Mothers Day and busy but they could have done with an extra pair of hands in the restaurant. The main the course was also barely hot enough, the beef was not particularly...
