Truly one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Myself and my partner booked a night here through a pigsback voucher a few months back. The room was so clean and comfy. Stayed there twice since and brought my parents the last time and had a wonderful time. We ate far to much which is so easy when the food is so so good. Booked to go back in two weeks time an can not wait. I'm recommending this hotel to anyone who'll listen. The staff and management are so friendly and couldn't be helpful enough. Looking forward to going back.

My partner and I stayed here at the weekend for one night, on a dinner bed breakfast deal. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. It was a little difficult to find, well my sat nav was confused anyway. So, dinner was absoloutely top class, I really was expecting something mediocren but this was not the case. It was an interesting menu, 4/5 choices on each course. We had the venison and seafood starters, for mains I had pork medalions and my partner had duck. Struggled with desert, which was delicious. To top the evening off there was live music in the lounge, very pleasant, no problem having a conversation and also enjoying the music. I had only two minor gripes, 1. I booked a hotel room, but was given a self catering apartment - may suit some, didnt bother me all that much, but I would like to know in future at the time of booking. 2. Room Service charge for breakfast was eight euro each, a bit over the top I think, sixteen euro ?? Breakfast was lovely by the way. The staff in the restaurant were excellent, we had a very nice waiter during dinner, Miroslaw. It's a lovely old house, beautiful dining room, not at all stuffy. We look forward to our next visit.

My wife, 2 boys & I took advantage of a one night b&b offer through a popular loyalty card scheme, which turned out to be wonderful value break. Within an easy & quick drive from the city, the lovely driveway & mature tree-lined grounds reveal a beautiful house & outbuildings.
The reception staff and porter gave us a friendly and welcoming arrival, and our family room was spacious, comfortable & well equipped with lovely mahogany furniture.
The main house is fabulous, with high ceilings & lovely art work, and has a lovely bar area / drawing room, where we had pre-dinner drinks. Being a saturday night, the restaurant was busy, giving the room a lovely buzz, the pianist added furthermore to a lovely atmosphere. The food was excellent, perfectly cooked & well presented with generous portions. The service, whilst not seemless was friendly and coped well with a full room.
The following morning, following a very good sleep on the extraordinarily comfortable bed, we started our day with a dip in the pool. Whilst not huge, it was a lovely start to the day. A lovely self service breakfast followed, again served in the restaurant, which was again very busy, and was plentiful & hot! Whilst being seated our very pleasant waiter told us "don't be shy- help yourself"!!
Our experience at Finnstown finished with a brief stroll around the lovely gardens, and again a very friendly & efficient check out at reception.
In summary, we really enjoyed our stay, the staff (and clearly, the management) are doing a great job, and compliment the lovely setting wonderfully well. Prior posts are right, it is a little old fashioned, but that only adds to the charm. I'll take that over the many soulless hotels that have sprung up over so many parts of the country any day of the week...

I cannot say enough good things about the hotel itself ,set in such wonderful surroundings with beautiful gardens plenty of space for the kids to enjoy. The staff were amazing they did everything they could for us especially the breakfast staff,our kids spoilt for choice (hot chocolate and pancakes went down a treat!!)thanks Barry and all!! We ate in the peacock restaurant again food was superb and staff brilliant!! Their was also a small pool which the kids got great use of any really enjoyed,the only bad thing was the radiator in the family suite of our bedroom would not switch off so room got a bit hot but ,maybe that could be fixed for next time???/we ll definitely be back ,can't wait !!!Thanks to all for making our stay so memorable
