We stayed 2 nights at the end of our stay in Ireland. The hotel is cramped, care-worn and slightly over used. We just started laughing with each other when we noticed things that were just hanging by a thread,, such as door knobs. There was barely enough room to walk around the end of the bed, and since that was the only place for our luggage, even that was not available. You had to sit on the toilet and then tuck your legs under the sink. Because of the room size, we spent time in the lounge area, rather than relaxing in our room.
When we arrived for check in, a 1/2 hour early, we were directed, rather rudely to just wait until it was time to check in. They also had a rather dated habit of requiring you to turn your room key in when you left the building. (which was just as well, since they had a HUGE tag on the room key, that actually made it a pain to lock and unlock your room). Oh, and parking was an extra fee...yeah.
We had no desire to avail ourselves of the breakfast, given the condition of the rooms.
The location leaves a little to be desired if you just want to walk to the city center. The neighborhood is a bit rundown, didn't give you a warm, fuzzy feeling.
If other critical reviews are any guide, the manager will come along and belittle my opinion. That is fine, I never intend to stay here again, and would not recommend it!
