This is a difficult review to write because the hotel is really pretty good; staying there during school holidays was not. We decided to book in at this hotel for a few days because of its close proximity to Fairy House Racecourse, where we were attending an event. In this regard, it worked well. Easy parking and only a few...

Stayed for 2 nights, pool is great. Lots in hydrotherapy section! Rooms are nice and modern. Great hotel for a family, plenty of stuff to do close to Tayto park and Dublin city. Only area which could be better is the restaurant, food was good but nothing special. Would go back for the pool area.
