The House Hotel was the first stop on a week-long sisters' trip through southwest Ireland. Wow! Great location, just steps away from Quay street. The lobby is pink! It was feminine yet bold, contemporary yet warm. We were told this is a woman-owned property and it shows, not only in the decor but also in the lovely staff. They were...

Staying on the first floor. It's 1.35am and the music from the bar is just pumping though the floor. All I want to do is sleep... It's a massive negative in light of all the positives this hotel has to offer. Pity.
