Reviewed 21 November 2013

We spent an overnight in the bridal suite as a prize on Facebook and we were extremely pleased with the accommodation and facilities. This is a well appointed, family-run hotel and all staff were very welcoming and friendly.There are Spa facilities on the top floor and I had a special offer massage at a very competitive rate. The hotel is situated in a rural setting and a car would be necessary to take full value of this region. Definitely 4*.

Room Tip: Speak to someone at the hotel to select best room. We were very lucky to have bridal suite. Excellen...

Lovely hotel only stayed one night lovely food. Friendly and helpful staff food is delicious. Room was very spacious and clean. Wifi was hit & miss mainly miss but everything else made up for it. Not far from Cavan town & its extensive array of shops. Would definitely recommend this hotel

Went here for Sunday lunch for the first time yesterday based on good reports from my work colleagues. What fantastic value for money. Large Sunday roast was €12.00 each. The plates were heaped with food and best of all - children under the age of 12 have a main meal free.... €24.00 for a family of four for a Sunday roast. You wouldn't be able to do a home roast for that if cooking beef. The meat was tender and tasty, the vegetables cooked beautifully. And dessert was just as good. Great choice, €4.60 for the adults and again, each child got a free icecream with every adult dessert purchased. The lounge / bar area was very spacious, had lots of couches and chairs which were extremely comfortable. The lounge area was a bit cool, I must admit, but I would rather it that way then too hot. Only downfall was that the Baileys coffees we got were TERRIBLE>>>>> but Wouldn't hold it against them. Will definitely go again and reccomend it to others.

Room Tip: Didn't stay in the rooms, so cannot comment.

Very nice hotel. Reception staff welcoming, extremely helpful and prepared for our arrival. Lovely spacious clean modern room and en-suite. Bar food very nice. Breakfast very good and cooked as we asked. Very friendly, efficient and pleasant waitress. Our stay was comfortable, restful and enjoyable. Only stayed one night but will certainly stay there again if in that area. Only not giving five stars because of the usual very minor maintenance issues that seem to beset most hotels.Worth noting that our sat nav showed hotel about 500m further down the road.

Room Tip: Worth paying extra ten euro for room with terrace

First impression, very good. The grounds were in super condition and we were not disappointed when we went into the hotel. Very pleasing decor, spacious and the receptionist was very courteous.
We had a delux room which was very large, well appointed and with a balcony. We dined in the hotel and the food was excellent. Overall a lovely dining experience in lovely surroundings.

Having read great reviews on TA, and wanting to search family roots in Co Cavan we chose this hotel.

What a Disaster Dahling! (as said by Craig from Strictly).

On arrival it felt cold in the very large foyer but just thought ,well it was cold outside. We were greeted friendly enough by reception but we have had far more pleasant welcomes elsewhere.
Rooms are all on the first floor and there is a lift. (positive point)
We reached room 203 a large room with double and single beds and immediately said 'gosh its really dark, put the light on.' Lo and behold No main room light was there, only dull bedside lights and one free standing. The room was so dark and it was only 4pm in October not December!
We knew there was no point in asking for another room as we were told they were fully booked. The room also was pretty chilly but we found an electric heater and switched it on. It was ok. There was an air con unit but did not use it for fear of cold air expelling out.

Positive things:The bathroom was large with shower over bath and towels were fluffy and wrapped around the waist!There was wi fi available in the room which came on easily.

We prepared for dinner and went downstairs. We seemed to be the only residents!!
We found the bar and decided to eat there rather than the restaurant where we felt we would be dining alone! There were a few people in the bar but again the area seemed cool. Service was slow -which does not match other reviews!
We chose the roast of the day and sweet chilli wrap which honestly was not 4Star food. The cheese board we had was however very tasty with unusual Tipperary cheeses. We told the waitress it was cold in the area and she replied 'Oh yes we have had a problem all day !!! Surely etiquette from reception ( who knew) would have been" we are having a problem with our heating so bare with us" and I would have worn another layer!!!
We decided we could not stay 2 nights as arranged as it did not meet our expectations. We told the receptionist, who did not apologise for the cold or questioned why we did not want to stay longer. However she did come and ask would we like the heat on in our room!! We accepted and yes it was much warmer on our return. This should have been offered earlier!
The bed was not comfy, the reading lights would not adjust and why do hotels insist on rubber mattress protectors?
Breakfast was good -individually cooked and another positive yeah- it served Cranberry Juice!
( not always available in 4 stars). On checking out the lady behind the desk went to get duty manager Aideen as we questioned having to pay the full price for a 1 night stay in the hotel which did not give us the service we desired. We were told that we could have been charged for leaving early! We did not cancel our stay merely cutting it short because we were not enjoying it . Why should we have had to pay more!! We did pay the 90 euro together with the bar bill but were not pleased with the attitude and service we were given ,hence this review.

I was so disappointed as I was so looking forward to a pleasant stay in a 4 star?? hotel.
Perhaps if you stay in an executive suite in the summer or are attending a wedding ,the Errigal would be a different place. A wedding was due to take place later and they sadly seemed more geared to this than individual guests.

Room Tip: Do not accept room 203, It must be the darkest room in the hotel.

Dear Guest
Thank you for your feedback, which is genuinely important to us in evaluating the service and facilites of our hotel
Here at Errigal Country Houes Hotel We receive many positive comments and we are very disappointed to hear that you felt let down with some aspests of your stay
All our bedrooms are designed in warm –toned softly lit and can be described as a quiet , private haven where you can unwind kick back and disappear from the wider world
Our rooms are fitted with two types of heating, electric heat which will turn on when you insert key card , also a modern air/con system with step by step instruction on how to use in room I in information book and wiil quickly heat room to very a comfortable level .I feel your comments was ufair as you did not turn on the heating ( air /con.)
I am glad to here that you were pleased with our bathroom and wifi facilities
I apologise if the heating was not to your liking in the bar, This was brought to my attention later that evening I checked the heating in bar and found that it was at a comfortable level of 21c* I turned up the heating to 25c*
I t was disheartening to read that the cuisine on offer did not live up to your expectations As you can see from our recent reviews. We only use the best quality and freshest produce available. Bord Bia approved suppliers. For all our meat products. We also employ the best chefs to prepare and cook the food to the highest standard. I was please to read that you were happy with our cheese board and Breakfast
I am very sorry that you felt you could not stay 2 nights as arranged and our hotel was not to the usual high standard of customer care associated with Errigal Country House Hotel I hope you will accept my apology. All our guests are important to us and I hope that some day we have the opportunity to restore your faith in Errigal Country House Hotel
Kind Regards
