After reading all the reviews on Tripadvisor I was convinced that some where fake but after staying for the Sat & Sunday of the August weekend I believe them to be true.
We had a suite for the two days and used it as a base for Connemara which was perfect. The village itself is a non event but the bakery and the coffee shop in the village were very good. There was a very nice looking restaurant also in the town which we never got to.
The hotel is good and the rooms funkily decorated. The bar is big and lively but we didn't spend too much time there as my wife is pregnant. We did spend an evening in there restaurant which was very nice and would recommend it as well as lunch and breakfast in the pins. Food were very good. One thing don't bother with room servce breakfast which was nothing to write home about and parking wasn't great as it seem a lot of people in for a pint taking up residents parking spaces.
Overall a good hotel and would recommend it for all.
