A friend and I recently stayed at the Lakeside Hotel on a mid-week break. We had a marvellous time and would go back at the drop of a hat. The mid-week special is fantastic value—but it’s worth paying €20 euro extra for a lakeside room. Our room was lovely: a spacious three-person room with dual aspect which meant outstanding views over Lough Derg. Even though we stayed in mid-December, the days were bright and the views magnificent. This is a three-star hotel and the price for a mid-week stay reflects that so don’t expect five-star facilities. You get lots of bang for your buck. The hotel was cosy rather then opulent, the staff were friendly, warm and courteous. The deal included dinner one evening in the hotel which was delicious. The Lakeside is well within walking distance of Ballina-Killaloe, so we wandered down each day and explored these lovely villages, stopping for coffee and to browse in the cute boutiques. Killaloe, a stroll across the bridge has an abundance of award-winning coffee shops. We also walked up to Brian Boru’s Fort, about a mile outside the village. On our second night, we popped next door to The Cherry Tree another award-winning restaurant for a memorable meal. The hotel has a swimming pool which would be great for kids and a spa which we didn’t have time to check out. Maybe next time.
