We had booked 4 rooms for 8 family members. Our own room was a suite which was excellent- very spacious, comfortable bed, large sitting room. The other rooms were small, lack-lustre, very basic, no extras but clean. We went to the bar in the evening for food but even though the bar wasn't busy and there were sufficient staff on...

After 10 days in Ireland, this was our final stop. While this front desk was nice, the rest of the staff, particularly in the hotel bar and restaurant, was inattentive, cold, and impersonal. Twice in one meal we had to get up and request to be served. Additionally, we were unimpressed by the amenities in the rooms, including a lack...

I meet with my husband after travelling by bus from Kildare. The bus stopped outside the door, so it was convenient to meet. We had a drink and sandwiches. Bar " Preachers Pub" is amazing. Staff friendly and the sandwiches were very good and not very expensive. Unfortunately we did not have time to stay longer, but would certainly consider...

We stayed here on the recommendation of a lady in the cafe at Aillwee cave. Friendly and family run was how she portrayed it so we decided to have a look.
