We ended up staying there over a public holiday weekend at the beginning of May 2010 because we needed somewhere near Ennis and other than Dromoland Castle there wasn't much choice. We booked a family room for ouselves and 3 children under 6. The only positive thing I can say is that the room was spacious. Otherwise - for the price we paid - which given the date of our stay was very high it was so not worth the amount we paid. The bath didn't drain, the flow from the shower was terrible - and wasn't fixed despite several requests, the room was very tatty and tired, the pool gave me the shivers and I couldn't get the kids out quick enough terrified of what they might pick up. As it was a holiday weekend the hotel was over-run with kids racing around all day and night. I don't have a problem with day-time but I hate seeing the bars full with parents while kids and toddlers hang around the lobby and games room after midnight. I didn't expect a luxury hotel but it was worse than I expected. Maybe if I had got the room at a bargain price I would have a different attitude but we paid a lot for very little.
