We ate in here twice, other than breakfast, and cannot fault the quality of the food and friendliness and helpfulness of the staff at all times. Highly recommended.

Had evening meal once. Ordered soup, gammon and barley. Neither of us finished it. The main course of chicken, mash and vets was OK but not worth the money. Did not go back again

Questions & Answers
Good Day One and All! My family (5) will be staying here over both Christmas and the New Year Holidays this year. We are hoping to find some suggestions for both Christmas Day Dinner and New Year's Eve / Day festivities at a local restaurant and / or pub. Especially some local live traditional Irish music and dancing. could some of the locals perhaps suggest some such places for our family to visit? I also wish to surprise my family with some live Irish Music and Dancing as my small 6 year old daughter loves watching Irish dancing and listing to the music. Does anyone perhaps know of a school of dance that would perhaps perform for us at the hotel when we arrive on the 19th of December? Would certainly be willing to pay for such a surprise for my family. This trip is perhaps my last Christmas with my family due to health reasons and really want to make it so special for my family and especially my youngest Angela Frances Eleanor Agnes Moran Tierney. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. All will certainly be appreciated. Best Regards, Robert McAllen Texas & Querétaro, México
