Horse & Jockey is on Exit 6 of the M8 exactly 1 hour from Cork, 1 hour from Limerick and 1.5 hours from Newlands Cross in Dublin. It is a really convenient meeting point in the centre of ireland. Also convenient to Kilkenny, Waterford, PortLaoise and Clonmel.
It is a well appointed hotel with a variety of different areas from a casual bar atmosphere, to a more businesslike lobby and coffee shop all the way up to formal conference facilities. Accommodation is excellent, food is fantastic, there is a health centre with a pool. Easy parking.
It is also only a short cab ride from Thurles which has a fantastic mainline rail service to Dublin, Cork, Kerry and Limerick.
The one downside for me is the lack of a petrol station. If you need fuel you have to go to Exit 8 in Cashel, or to Littleton in the Dublin Direction.
