On arrival at the Killeshin hotel my wife and I were pleased to find that there was a lot of spaces in the underground car park and it was handy going to reception with our luggage in the elevator.The receptionist was very nice and polite and explained the layout of the hotel to us then gave us two free vouchers for the house cocktail.Before my wife and I go to any hotel we always look up the trip advisor to see what the comments are by other guests and noticed that there was a few comments complaining about the rooms' so you can imagine our surprise when we stepped into the bedroom to find that it was tidy and spacious the bathroom was also clean and had a strong water pressure in the shower.We ate that night in the bar,I ordered a rare steak with champ which wasn't a problem.The service was good and the waitress was very pleasant,unfortunately I don't believe it was sirloin as parts of it were tough. I couldn't even cut it with a steak knife never mind chew it and I had to leave some unfortunately.My wife then had her house cocktail which she said was very nice.The bed was very comfortable and we both had a good nights sleep.In the morning we went down to breakfast I usually have fruit salad and yoghurt,to my dismay there was no fruit salad only grapefruit segments which I am not allowed to eat. I was further disappointed to find that there was no scrambled eggs and opted for the full Irish breakfast what a mistake everything was cold and greasy it was really horrible.When we went up to our room we received an unexpected phone call and had to go home,in checking out the receptionist was very sincere and understanding and wished us a safe journey home.This in my mind isn't too bad a hotel it's just a pity the food isn't of a bit better quality especially the breakfast.
