“Makes life so easy!”
Reviewed 21 December 2013 via mobile

After spending years going out in Carlow my friends finally left me in charge of arranging accommodation and they are so happy they did! We checked in and the receptionist was lovely and couldn't have done enough, when we went to the room I was so impressed, it was warm, cosy and very modern, the shower was amazing - a good hotel can always be judged by it's shower.

We went down to get something to eat in Dinn Ri bar and despite the fact that it was jam packed the staff were efficient friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. The food was also very reasonably priced with a great 2 or 3 course menu available with a good bar menu to suit everybody.

After a few drinks off we went to the nightclub had a few drinks and a dance and then back to the room, despite the warnings of noise we didn't hear much even though the club was still in full swing.

Anyway guys thanks for the great night, hope to get back soon. Keep up the good work!

Dinn ri bar is very nice food looked lovely but as far as staying at the dinn ri,( DONT ) im not fussy but its not a hotel dont now how they can call it a hotel,waiting 15 min to be checked in then you go up the lift only 1 floor takes ages you come back to hotel at nite then your expected to knock on windows to get the attention of the small old man who is quite nice but he seems to be doing every job, we were out in the cold 10 min before we got his attention by banging on windows, should be at least a bell you can ring or give you a key to enter....rooms were grand plus a nice shower but they need to sort out a few things first before id consider staying there again....

Its 3.26am and the dj in the nightclub below the room has stopped roaring at the top of his voice, and most of the screaming from the street is finished but the noise is still coming from the tv in the room next door and the street is still active. I'm a bit too annoyed now to be able to sleep anyway. I even requested a quiet room but the window to the street doesn't seal properly.

Good service in the hotel and decent food in the bar but I'll never stay here again due to the noise.

Hi there and thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us on TripAdvisor. We appreciate your feedback and we are sorry to hear that you had difficulty sleeping. (Usually we make every effort to bring to people’s attention when booking their stay on a club night about the possibility of a noise factor). However, on a positive note, we would like to thank you for giving us 5 out of 5 for service and also for rating the food and the cleanliness of the rooms highly.

Checked in for 2 nights. Lobby was a mess with boxes, papers, and trash everywhere. Hallways to rooms were dirty and felt like a flop house. Once opening door in room, stepped into a fowl smell and poop in toilet. (Unflushed) room also smelled like mildew and mold. Room was not clean and dust and fingerprints everywhere. Disgusting. A siren was going off in a building adjacent, for over 1/2 hour. Even though I prebooked with no refund I decided to head to another town as this hotel was more like a dirty flop house and was scary to think of sleeping in that horrid dirty room. I left. Lucky for me I wrote a letter to the booking company who got me a refund on a non refundable booking!!! Do not stay at this hotel EVER!!

Spent a Saturday night here for a Friends hen weekend and to say it was fantastic would be an understatement.....the deal we had was fantastic and any future maids of honour out there defiantely go for cocktail making option brilliant fun and got everybody in the mood!
Bedrooms comfortable and warm, dinner and breakfast yummy!! Staff were lovely and helpful and couldn't do enough.
Nightclub is huge and if it isn't your scene there is choices of a band playing or bar with live music as well.
Hoping to return with some couple friends and have another excellent stay!!!!!!

Room Tip: Use earplugs if you want too sleep!!

This was my second time here for a hen party and it was excellent both times. The food and service in brooks was unbelievable (and we had very picky eaters with us). The service and treatment of the staff was brilliant and we are in the process of organising our next trip down. I would highly recommend this venue to everyone.
