Had a fantastic dinner here mid week so the bar was quiet and relaxed. We got the burger and the fish. Couldn't fault a single thing with either meal. Everything was spot on! Love the new decor in the bar, nice and bright.

If you like me love seafood chowder you can travel the length and breath of Ireland and you won't find better than this Hotel. It's more a fish stew with lovely brown bread and having your toes toasted at the big open turf fire life doesn't get better. A nice touch they offer you a glass of ice water or... More

We had dinner in the bar on both evenings of our stay. It was fine. Friday evening was quiet in the bar and the food looked like it had been kept warm. Saturday evening the bar was busier and our dinners were fresher.

Arrived literally 2 minutes after the food was supposed to have finished. We were greeted by a lovely gentleman, clearly the owner or manager who assured us that food was no problem at all and he'd get our order in. The food was absolutely amazing! Beautiful seafood pie, and 2 roast beef dinners. The beef was so tender and the... More

Had the pleasure of staying in this beautifully renovated hotel last night with my daughter. Our twin room over looked Youghal Bay and was so cosy. We had an excellent meal in the bar, great food, great value. Choice for breakfast is wide and also excellent. Every member of staff we encountered couldn't be more helpful or professional. Well done... More

Had lunch here on 13th. Great choice of dishes: the roast beef meal was meltingly good! Two fine slabs of beef served on creamy mash with root vegetables and GF gravy, it proved to be a great choice! My colleague had the seafood pie - unfortunately not GF! - But rich, creamy and delicious without being overwhelming. No time to... More

Really enjoyed our lunch here on Sunday. Food was excellent and the extra touch of having choice of mint water along with regular water was appreciated. Staff were friendly and efficient. The decor in bar restaurant was really beautiful and there was a lovely warm ambience about the place
