Stopped off for a bite to eat on my way to Kerry. Food, service and attention by Barbara was exceptional. Everyone was smiling and seemed happy in their daily routine. Loved it and will definitely be back. Thank you

Stop here if you are ever on a Cork to Killarney/Tralee trip. Also worth calling in here for a brunch, lunch or coffee anytime. All food I ever got here was great. I have eaten here for years and was always happy.

From the moment we walked through the door the staff at this hotel were superb-I simply cannot fault their attitude and application. A credit to this hotel. The food was excellent-both bar and restaurant available and for light snacks a cafeteria at the front of the hotel, which was always busy. Lots of food is sourced locally from small producers...
