“Poor Dining Experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

I recently visited with my husband, baby daughter and in-laws. As the in-laws were paying we chose food off the early bird menu. I would normally choose off the Á la carte even if it is early (with a 17 month old we only ever go out early anymore) so i am willing to give Cryan's the benefit of the doubt that our poor quality food was down to the fact we were paying slightly less. However the food we did receive was less than a joke. My Peppered chicken breast was burnt brown and not wanting to complain i asked for more sauce only to find that the sauce also tasted burnt and had hardly any pepper in it. I Hardly touched mine and the staff noticed at the end of the meal and were good enough to not charge. However my husband ordered the curry and found it less than satisfactory. His comment was "It's slightly better than that curry with tin of fruit salad in it I got the hospital!!" My advice is that if your ordering anything here make it the roast beef (that the in-law's enjoyed) or anything that isn't supposed to have flavor. Or do what we are going to do and don't risk having a disappointing night by not going there ever again.

Room 109 - the room was quiet, clean and well apportioned (almost directly above the bar/reception). The bed was comfortable and I slept well.

There is a small car park around the rear of the hotel with direct access into building. Internet access was provided but other than just checking emails, I didn't test drive it too much.

Food service stopped at 9pm, and although the menu was fairly short, what I had was freshly prepared, well presented and most tasty (fish and chips!)

Hot breakfast was cooked to order and delivered piping hot, there was a buffet of cereals and fruits - absolutely no complaints, but next time I will ask for extra bacon!

Checkout was smooth and efficient with a cheery smile.

Will definately have this place on my shortlist next time in Carrick-onShannon

Room Tip: You may wish to be on the 2nd floor if there is a function taking place

We went here for a Sunday lunchtime meal and I have to say it was a great fulsome meal. It was the usual roast chicken, lamb & beef with all the trimmings followed by a banoffee pie. My only gripe was it was a bit of a free for all when it came to getting a table .... there wasn't any system. It was literally wait for someone to finish and grab the seat. You could always go the restaurant but that would mean you would have to book and this was a bit of a last minute thing. People have previously described this as a bustling hotel and I wouldn't disagree based on our Sunday lunchtime visit.

Room Tip: Book a table in the restaurant if you have time

Stayed here overnight for wedding locally. Rooms were spotless, breakfast was good, staff was friendly, location perfect. I would prefer it than big hotel. Would go back if i was up that direction again.

Place was very busy but the staff were very nice and helpful. Room excellent with view of the shannon. Breakfast freshly cooked and tasty with extended breakfast times. Very homely and plenty of parking. We were very happy with our stay and would recommend anyone including families to stay. A real Leitrim welcome.

Visited in July for lunch, a good choice - nice airy seating area, options of where to sit.
Good variety of food with more than ample portions. Attentive service and very friendly staff. Have recommended and will return on my visit to Carrick on Shannon.
