Stayed here 1 night this week on business,honestly it's hard to describe how I felt after staying here,I have stayed in hotels all over Ireland and this would have to be the worst,in actual fact it was like a step back in time to about 20 years ago and I think we would have had better facilities back then !...

Brilliant hotel with a lounge downstairs. Rooms are a bit dated and the room information said there was sky news but all the channels were mixed up. The staff were fantastic however there is one receptionist who was rather rude and lacked any eye contact with guests. The food was amazing and the ambience of the restaurant was first class....
