WOW! Place is great, IMO. The grounds are wonderful! A great faerie ring, nice lawn, quiet, not a lot of road noise. Feels very Irish. The wood work is fabulous! The pool and whirlpool are fun, clean, clear. Stayed in the Brian Boru Presidential suite. It was worth it! Views were great, room hugs! Nice shower and giant whirlpool bath. Clean. Bed was nice. Sheets and pillows great. Comfortable kitchen and sitting area. Fantastic.
Work out room is small. Adding a giant mirror doesn't it make it bigger, just makes it so that I see how fat I am from all angles. The shower "steam room" didn't work. When I told management, she simply stated she'd be up later to see if it worked. I JUST TOLD YOU IT DIDN'T WORK! And of course, when I got back to the room, it still didn't work. Also, make sure everything is clear before you actually do an upgrade. The wording is vague on some of their packages, so you think you are getting a better deal than you really are. Also, no offer to help with our bags.
Also, Main Street, the main shopping area, is only 0.7 miles from the hotel. And it's an easy walk. I thought the restaurant was pretty good authentic Irish food. (yes, I've been to Ireland).
Overall, for me, a wonderful experience! But for the money, they should have had someone up to my room in a second to fix the problem, not tell me they will come see if it works or not. Otherwise, 5 stars.
