We stayed in the hotel for the gaa semi final for one night. We got checked in and the room was lovely. The hotel itself and the rooms are spotless and very well laid out!robes and slippers were laid out on the bed for us on arrival along with chocolates on the bed which was a nice touch. Also the hotel has the gaelic theme running throughout with many pictures of past matches and player profiles and portraits running throughout which was interesting. The hotel was very busy match day but a great atmosphere!the only downside was that there were security at the front door of the hotel and although i stated we were stayin in the hotel and wanted up to our rooms we were told we had to go around the back through the bar to get in to the lounge to get to our rooms which is pretty silly considering the bar was packed!we had a very peaceful nights sleep and never heard any noise from the bar or passing trains whatsoever!we went down for breakfast the next morning which was tasty, however there were a few issues. Firstly there were no bowls for fruit or cereal i asked one of the staff whose reply was a grunt. Another guest then told me they'd asked for bowls ten minutes ago so we waited and waited and waited.Fianlly they came out, however they were roasting so cereal out ofn a roasting bowl wasn't very appealing.Next they ran out of milk, mushrooms, bacon etc maybe better management is needed. The staff are mixed (irish and eastern european) the language barrier is a problem as when one of our party asked if there were any more danish pastries (they'd ran out again) we were told no by a very unfriendly man whose english wasn't good, only two seconds later for an irish staff member to bring out a huge bowl of pastries!The food itself was lovely very tasty and good selection. All in all a beautiful, clean hotel in a great location with great food great and great location-only thing that let it down was ignorant and unhelpful eastern european workers. Tip employ more irish workers as those working in the hotel were very friendly and helpful and the fact they could communicate unlike the others was a plus.
