We were on 15 day bus tour in Ireland - may 2014. This was our hotel for 2 nights.
Now the first thing that was bad about our stay was that it was comedy festival in town and the hotel was hosting the event. They gave us a room overlooking the front and for two hours while everyone lined up out front - it was a zoo! Once everyone went in, it was quiet until everyone let out! Then it was noisy again for a few hours.
The supper service was a three ring circus when it came to service. Several people had plates and utensils whipped out from under there noses before they were finished eating. Three times the man across from me asked them not to take away his bread plate he was not done. They kept on taking utensils so that by the time desert came - no one had anything to eat it with. No one was happy!
I had to ask for a sheet to sleep on top of these darned heavy comforters all the hotels seem to use. Way too hot for those! I asked for a sheet and when we came back to the room we were left a little pile of misc stuff - and the only thing we asked for was a sheet?
The second night service was better - less people in the dining room and not so anal about whisking away our dishes. Better supper choices as well.
breakfast - they had the only pancake maker machine I seen in 30 days and it was fabulous. I was so sick of traditional breakfasts I was happy to eat some pancakes!
