Stayed 2 nights there. The room was spacious and clean and so was the bathroom. Coffee and tea tray was there as well as an ironing board and iron and a hair dryer. . Our room also had a balcony. The restaurant food for breakfast and especially dinner is excellent.

We stayed one night on route to Connemara. Good hotel, nice spacious rooms, good breakfast - lots of choice. We also had a balcony. Travelled with our six year old and he was quite happy. Wifi poor and TV channel selection basic enough. We paid €135 for b&b in August which was about the value of the place.
