This is a pretty, quaint, old hotel, on a lovely property, with lots of history. Problem for me was my room was cold, clammy and had a dank odor (as if it had been closed up all winter and I was the first occupant this season--which may have been the case since I was part of a small bicycle touring group early in May). My twin bed mattress was broken down and so uncomfortable that I had to put my feet at the headboard to try to avoid the broken down edge. Others in my group, however, reported that their rooms were lovely. (To be fair I didn't contact management about my bed issues so maybe they would have moved me to another room? but the mattress was old and awful in any case). I had a water view room.
Another thing that troubled me is our group had a seated, group dinner in a large, formal, sequestered dining room which ran directly against when the Irish music was performing in the bar (something we were eager to hear). Fortunately a staff member came in during our dessert and told us that we could hear the last half hour if we hurried into the bar (which we did). Ironically, they start and end the music much earlier than most Irish pubs, which for a bicycle group is perfect since we go to bed earlier than most pubs even start the music! Perhaps this problem was more a function of the cycling company booking the meal for a specific time and not realizing it was running over our opportunity to hear an Irish music session? The music was fun and the bar cozy. I also have to say the Manager at this hotel was really "visible", running around trying to be pleasant.
