We've just had my sisters hen here and everyone is still raving about it. The hotel was a surprise if I'm honest. I thought it was going to be nice, but it far exceeded my expectations. Considering they welcome large groups, Hens & Stags with open arms, you would be forgiven if you thought that the hotel might not be...

The receptionist,Aisling, was an example of how people in this area can set a positive tone for guests. The buffet in the bar area was outstanding and would put thoughts of dieting out...

Excellent staff serving quality food at a reasonable price. Staff very attentive to detail. Even though the place was busy, service was great. I would recommend highly due to the above factors. We arrived with a six year old and a one month old and this was not in the least bit problematic. We will return for sure.

Just had the best girls weekend away with my 9 friends. We laughed, we drank, we slept, we ate. We had the best time ever. Friendly staff and very clean rooms. Food was excellent and the hotel could not do enough for us.
