We first time travel to Ireland from Russia, and choose that hotel just because name "Gandon" reminded me name of the village where I was born "Gandonovka"... so what can i say, the hotel is very comfortable, but unfortunately poorly known among Russian tourists, I'm sure if you promote the hotel in Russia, it will be a great success (sorry for my english)

The Gandon Inn is just off the M7/M8 Dublin to Cork or Limerick roads.
Good bar food, good breakfasts. Cannot comment on the accomodation as I've never stayed over.

We had our wedding reception here for over 100 people, the room was beautifully decorated, every Guest had nothing but nice things to say about the food and the rooms. It was so cosy and relaxed, we couldn't have wished for a better day. The bridal suite was fantastic, huge four poster bed and a jacuzzi and steam shower. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone for this size wedding. It's just off the m7 so everyone could find it and get home easily.

A measure of the welcome you'll receive at The Gandon Inn was that as I was waiting to be collected at the hotel entrance, the manager opened the bar, started the fire, switched on the TV and made me a pot of tea. I was not even a hotel guest ! Cheers Gandon Inn !
