Stayed two nights for weekend in early November. Had a very pleasant stay. Friendly staff, spacious clean room. Food was excellent in both Legends Restaurant and Bar. Very central location, plenty of free parking. We had the added bonus that the sun was shining for the whole weekend so got plenty of walking in the Burren. Will be back again
