Rather than having a bell on reception to notify the receptionist of your arrival, one of the two ladies smoking in the reception doorway will very kindly go into the bar and let the barman know you are there.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. Great food, we enjoyed a delicious evening meal and the best full Irish breakfast. Very comfortable room with a spectacular view and armchairs to sit and enjoy the sunset.

Staff were helpful and friendly (although you might have to look for the receptionist in the bar next door: all adds to the charm!). We did not eat there but...

Stayed in the waterfront for 2 nights over the Easter weekend. What first hits you is the location overlooking the harbour. The sea view costs a little bit extra but is a "must". The panoramic view is outstanding. We did have an issue with our room and was offered another overlooking the back garden but declined the change as the...
