Arranged an end of season presentation in the heritage for young kids. The hotel couldn't do enough for us . They gave us a large room , food and PA system at a fantastic rate. Couldn't say enough about Michael & his team in the Heritage . Huge to have support from such a superb hotel .

This is our second time to visit this hotel. Travelled with my three kids 10, 8 and 4. I'm only going to comment on the pool as its the only thing stopping us returning. The water was freezing. So cold we had to constantly move around to keep warm in the water. My two youngest can't swim so they felt...

We stayed on a Friday night in December so the hotel was very busy and there are renovations on going so the hotel is a lot smaller than usual. Despite this the staff were nice and friendly and helpful. Parking was an issue as there aren't many spaces allocated to the hotel although there is a multi story car park...

Brought the kids away for a xmas holiday break. With four kids we booked 2 rooms adjoining. Rooms were fine, a little tired & basic but they are renovating at present so I assume they will be a lot nicer if we visit again. The boys loved the swimming pool, and they had a kids club running from 5pm -9.30...

its a new build, nothing heritage about it but the area has attractions so they label hotel heritage so it sucked me on a false premise with photo of the reception looking like it was grand old dame try somewhere with more character or honesty

We had dinner in the beautiful restaurant and it was a pure delight. I would highly recommend it. The pricing was great also, it was €25 euro for 2 courses or €30 for 3 courses. The waitress was lovely and friendly and really kind and helpful to us.

Was not warned that (a) pool was closed and (b) bar was temporary. So basic almost checked out. Restaurant closed Mondays at least. Rooms basic and tired but reasonably clean. Staff were all friendly and local. Not surprising it was cheap. Pay extra for parking too...
