Over all this is lovely property.. altough there is some evidence of lack of maintenance.
The staff on the main we pleasant enough (Agnes in particular was extremely helpful). However on checking in I was asked if I was at the wrong hotel - as the receptionist couldn't find my booking. Once we had overcome the spelling of my name I was checked in. Note very few staff seem to speak native english (or Irish of course).
The bar staff simply don't smile (Agnes excepted). Food is good enough in the bar, but the bar lacks any atmosphere.
Given my "special" rate of €108 B&B the room was good, nice size TBH. Also there is an iron in each room - perfect for business.
Here is my biggest gripe though. The interet simply does not work reilably in the business centre. When I asked some local attendees at our meeting about this, it seems it is a known issue. Also the whole time I was there I was unable to connect my phone the internet either.
Also don't go here expect gardens or views.. it's in a car retail park!
