This small hotel is situated on the edge of the River Shannon in County Roscommon - this is not a tourist hotspot but it is a pleasant area with plenty of historical interest. (There is for example a 'Big House' museum in the nearby village of Strokestown and in Tulsk there is a small centre which tells the mythical story of Queen Maeve and the Táin Bó Cuailgne.)
We stayed in a boutique room overlooking the river. The room was small but comfortable and included extras like tea and coffee facilities, chocolates, bottled water.
We had dinner twice in the restaurant. The restaurant was busy, popular with locals and deservedly so. The menu was varied and the cooking and service was excellent.
This hotel has a very pleasant, friendly atmosphere. We were made to feel welcome by all staff and enjoyed our stay. Good wishes to the owners, Annette and Barry.
