We stayed at finnstown house for a wedding. We had stayed the night before the wedding and were due to stay the night of it which didnt happen due to the hotel being evacuated due to a bomb scare!!
On our first night we checked in and we were told our room was outside of the main building which was no issue at first untill we went to the room!! The room was a good size but the bathroom was a complete joke.The shower wheel to turn on the shower was practically impossible to turn on and twice as hard to turn off. There was mildew all over the seals of the bath tub and tiles. The room itself was full of dust on frames and the curtains were barely hanging on which may i add didnt close fully!
The food in the bar,restaurant and wedding was superb, compliments to the chefs as it was one of the only upsides of our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpfull but seemed as if they were under a lot of pressure, they were great workers and nothing was a problem for them. Under staffed is the word I would use. There was a very poor management pressence throughout our stay which tells its own story.
On the night of the wedding the entire party and hotel were evacuted to a local pub where we had to make our own transport or walk down the avenue. This in its own right was not acceptable or a good impression on the hotel! I have read articles in papers and on the internet but yet to hear any apology to guests or people who attended the wedding from management!!
I sure will not be returning here in a hurry and would not reccommend it to anyone.
