Just back from a 2 night B&B with one evening meal package with my wife. This was our 2nd time staying here and it was every bit as good as the 1st (if not better). Initial impressions when checking in are of grandeur when you see the staircase and chandelier. And that impression lasted with us throughout the whole stay. Both times we've been lucky to get an upgrade to a Junior Suite (Thank you Sarah McAuley). These rooms really are huge with an extra separate toilet, lounge and dining area. I imaging the standard rooms are every bit as plush, just a bit smaller than the massive suites!
One of the things that makes this hotel stand out are the attitudes of the staff, nothing was too much bother. From the bar, restaurant staff to the staff at reception, concierge and the cleaning staff everyone was very accommodating. It wouldn't be fair to single out one person.
Other things to note are the free wifi throughout the hotel - no registering an email or anything. Your device connects to the wi-fi straight away. There are bikes to use free of charge, we asked about booking them and were told there's no need to. There are plenty of bikes available and the one's we used were brand spanking new. We cycled around Killenard for a while until the persistant rain encouraged us to return back to the hotel earlier than we had planned.
Although we were there as 2 adults there were plenty of children staying at the hotel. There's plenty of things for them to do with a cinema, games room, swimming pool, tennis etc. We might consider bringing our own kids next time round (but then again, we might not!).
Food at both the Arlington restaurant and Slieve Bloom bar was very enjoyable.
A wedding took place during our stay and I had read some reviews on Tripadvisor where people not attached to the wedding were made to feel unimportant. This was not the case at all and the staff' remained attentive to non wedding guests for the duration.
Another nice touch was a small cake in our room on arrival with the words Welcome Back piped in chocolate sauce. Can't fault anything about our stay and would recommend the hotel without any hesitation. I'm dying to try the golf course out next time and so will begin dropping subtle hints to my wife .....
Thank you Heritage.
