The staff were very friendly .I would defiantly recommend this hidden gem lovely cosy hotel with lovely log fire s in reception and bar.

Stayed for a long weekend. The room was huge with an adequate bathroom - nice to have a shower cubicle rather than a bath with shower over. Lovely, friendly staff and no problems catering for my food intolerances. And as for the location, well the beach at Narin is just stunning.
