“Nice hotel with a great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

A very nice hotel with a great view of the lake and countryside. The map and directions aren't very clear but we found it. Like most hotels, they should include their map coordinates for GPS use. The room was cheery and comfortable. The bathroom sink was a little amusing since it seemed to be about 4 or 5 feet high. Kind of felt like a little kid again and could have used a step stool. But not objectionable. Kind of amusing in a way. Just another interesting experience. Wonderful staff and an engaging owner. Dinner was great and they happily accomodated our somewhat late arrival for breakfast! Great accomodation for 3 adults. A great stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the front overlooking the lake.

Have been here many times for quiet meals to busy family gatherings. Last time we all stayed the night and everything was just amazing from when we arrived to our beautiful room with a breath taking view. Monique hiding my sister away, who flew from london as a suprise. With a champagne reception before one of the best meals ever. It really was one of the most memorable stays I have had anywhere. Both Stefan and Monique run the Ardagh fantastically and I look forward to my next visit.

I only booked this hotel because it was close to the area where I wanted to stop for the night. But what a nice surprise. The dinner was incredible and served by candlelight in front of a window with the most gorgeous view of the sunset. Lots of comfy, attractive places to sit downstairs to relax. The people there were so nice, and it had a great, family feel. I hated to have to check out the next day. I would definitely recommend a stay here. It will become a treasured memory.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at the Ardagh where we had a family reunion in honour of our father who used to love this hotel. The welcome was warm and my widowed mother was greeted like a long lost friend, which was wonderful for her. The food is outstanding and the service was pleasant and attentive. The view from the dinningroom and the bedrooms at the front of the hotel is as good as it gets. Our large family gathering loved every minute of what could have been a sad occasion for us but the team at the Ardagh ensured that everyone had a wonderful time, which left us wanting more. A decision has been made that a family trip to the Ardagh should become an annual event!

We also stayed in the Ardagh hotel for Easter & what a weekend we had, you could'nt fault anything even Stefan & his impromptu gig on his drum kit.
The Ardagh is everything you could wish for in a stay away with fabulous views over the bay & amazing food in restaurant provided by Monique , what a hard working woman, everything you eat is sourced locally & served by their wonderful staff , after dinner you can head to the lovely bar with a big open fire & entertainment on the night we were there was a lovely girl with her guitar & a gorgeous voice and Stefan also provided us with some fabulous drumming to Elvis & Barry white , should be a regular weekend treat ....... I have to say it was a great night & one that I will be returning to visit again soon.
Stefan keep practising those drums for our next visit. !!!!!!!!
Regards , Siobhan & Martin Coen
