“A nice hotel at the tip of Ireland”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

This was a wonderful hotel with as always very helpful and friendly people.
The room was clean and the shower was absolutely fantastic.
There is not much to do around the hotel but the nature is so
beautiful.
We were lucky to have one evening with a guitar player and a man with
a violin. They had only met that afternoon but played like they had done that for
years.

Room Tip: All rooms are almost the same so it doesn't really matter which room you get.

We stayed Easter weekend and had a really enjoyable stay. The owner and staff made us feel so welcome and provided great suggestions for where to go to enjoy the breathtaking scenery which is everywhere you go in this beautiful location. There are many beautiful beaches which are just a short drive or even a walk away.The food was plentiful, tasty and great value and the little bar serves a great pint of Guinness. Our standard double room was spotlessly clean and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely small hotel.

Stayed here using a Groupon voucher. Very good value. The hotel overlooks the Atlantic ocean & Cruit Island, which is reached by a short causeway, & the views are wonderful.

The hotel is plain but very comfortable & friendly. Bedroom was spacious with a great sea view. Best shower ever! Food very good & reasonably priced.

Good base for touring. Lots of beautiful beaches. The Cruit Island golf course is nearby. 9 holes only, (& at 25 euros for 18 holes is good value). It is also challenging, particularly with the wind blowing, as it usually does in various degrees of intensity. With the Atlantic ocean on three sides, the scenery is magnificent.

Also nearby (20 miles approx) is Glenveagh National Park, well worth a visit (look at it on the internet).

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view.

Arrived late in the evening after a rather cold mortorbike ride to be met by friendly staff who helped carry our luggage to the room and ensured us, that although we had arrived minutes before the last order for tea, that we would be well fed that night! The food was lovely! The bar had a traditional Irish feel and was obviously where the locals came for a drink and as such had a lovely warm & lively atmosphere. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, ensuring a great nights sleep! Breakfast the next morning was delicious! We walked to Cruit golf club that morning, which was quite a walk but beautiful views of the coast. It is quite isolated but perfect for a relaxing weekend to get away from it all.

Would highly recommend this hotel if you want to experience Irish hospitality at its best!
