As Dowds was fully booked for 3 nights I ended up in Eldons. Had to wait a bit, too but was welcome as a single. Very nice staff although it was crowded. I ate a very well done salmon with vegetables and potatoes. I would recommend it.

We stayed two nights with another couple. Eldons is comfortable but the rooms are somewhat in need of updating. One hinge on our room door was broken and we rather thought it was not a new problem. We got used to lifting it when we went in to stop the awful squeak! One morning there was no hot water but...

This is a charming little hotel in the center of town that offers everything you expect in Ireland. Rooms, albeit small, have all you need. One of my favorite things about the Irish hotels is the heated towel rack that is now missing from the more modern hotels. Such a pleasure. Friendly people and friendly atmosphere. We were in room...

Arrived in Roundstone a little later than planned at 9.45pm. Nowhere serving food at that time. Staff in Eldon's were extremely kind and accommodating and arranged some soup and toasted sandwiches for us while we checked in to our B&B. Everyone was extremely friendly. Attentive service and generous portions. We really appreciated it and will definitely be back again.
