Had a wonderful stay with my partner while exploring the wild Atlantic way! Bedroom was comfortable and clean, very reasonably priced. Aisling serving the breakfast couldn't do enough for us and made our stay even better. Would definitely stay again

I went there for lunch on 24 Aug. 2016. I waited 10 mins for my companion to arrive. She arrived, we got menus and,when we started to order, the waiter said the electricity was out in the kitchen and they only had soup and sandwiches. I could have put up with being allowed to sit in the restaurant for 15...

Dear Gerry G I sent a private email to you a week ago, but you have decided to ignore my invitation to call into us, as you live only 100 feet from us. Yes, we had a slight electrical blip on the day you were in our restaurant and lost power for 10 minutes to some of our kitchen equipment,...

This place was fine in the Irish sense as in ok. Great location in the town with some limited parking spaces for guests. Check in was hassle free. The room was a little tired and dated but clean. The side of our bath decided it no longer wanted to be there and loudly attempted to escape every time we opened...

Good location but this hotel but needs some TLC. The public areas are well maintained however the room we were in could definitely do with a good spring clean. Our room had a double and a single and both were clean. The cutlery on the tea tray had not been washed since the last time they were used and the...

This is not a high end place but it was good for what it offered. Two things didn't impress me, 1 shower curtain was not as clean as I would like and the TV did not have a remote! Breakfast was good. Not ott and wasteful so I was pleased by that. I would recommend staying here as long as...
