When we approached the hotel I thought it was a carcass of the Celtic tiger era, surrounded by unfinished development and never opened retail outlets. Once you're inside though, it is a beautiful, well appointed friendly hotel that's terrific value for money. The rooms are spacious and clean (albeit with the worst tv system ever). The lobby, bar and restaurant are comfortable. There was a large wedding on our second night, but that didn't impact on the terrific service. The food was amazing even If the menu was somewhat limited for my taste. On the down side, I was disappointed that the good selection of speciality beers weren't refrigerated. I would definitaly recommend for a couples getaway or stop off point as part of a larger holiday.
