The picture shown here is not even of the hotel itself! The hotel is impersonal and "cluttered". In the middle of the "nowhere" on the Irish west coast you do well to stay far away. It is close to the coast but so not worth it. All the Irish hospitality that you'll usually find all over has been eradicated here....

Stayed in this hotel in Lisdoonvarna in September. The hotel is clean and maintained well and the staff are friendly. The heating was on full blast and not really necessary, but probably suited the higher age profile of most of the residents. Breakfast in the morning was fine.

Stayed with a large party for a hen night during the famous match making festival. It was ideal. Central. Clean. Rooms were basic but functional. Staff were very helpful and surprisingly under control for the vast number of people using the hotel. Well done. would recommend for similar groups
