We can only thank the management and staff for the friendly welcome, efficient service and fantastic food we enjoyed in their restaurant. All guests were truly complimentary. The Roof-Top Bar was great for some after dinner drinks. We had a great day and night at the hotel and...

Stayed two nights as part of a riding holiday. Very clean and efficient. Very modern and lacks the ambiance and charm that we had come to expect in western Ireland. Hosts large events, so can be quite noisy. Food was very good.
