I booked a room by internet without looking at the map and when we tried to get there, we were lost, it was already nigth, a really dark , foggy and rainy nigth... but thanks to the help of some locals we finally arrived. We didnt know what to expect, a hotel in the middle of nowhere!

We got in and a lovely gentelman gave us a very worm welcoming, he walked us until our room, we were surprised by the size, cleanliness of it and it was a really nice tocth from him to have the room already heated.

We decided to stay for dinner and what a great experience! David took fantastic care of us and his wife Mary coocked for us a deligthfull dinner, all local fresh products!

For breakfast is possible to choose betwen continental or Irish, we went for continental (6 eur) and we had so much to choose from, we ate as much as we could but David insisted to offer even more!

We didint know what or where to go so we asked for advise to David who recommended us few places all around. What a place!, the nature, the scenaries! We had an amazing day thanks to David and Mary's recommendations!!!

We recommend The Pilgrims Rest Hotel to everyone!!! We will be back, next time on porpuse.

We stayed in The Pilgrims Rest Hotel New Years Eve and New Years day. Dave and Mary could not have been more obliging as to our shock we arrived at the hotel to find our booking had been cancelled due to a problem with booking.com. The Hotel was in fact closed. As it was starting to get dark and very cold we were worried we would not get anywhere else and would have to take the drive back to Dublin. Dave had a look to see if there where any other hotels nearby that we could book but because of the night that was in it they were way out of our price range. So Dave and Mary being the type of people they are heated a room and gave it to us for the two nights at the discount price we had seen on booking.com. We were delighted and so grateful. The hotel is lovely and homely, our room was spotless with a bed we could not get out of, an orthopedic mattress which I never experienced in a hotel with less than a 4star rating. We could not have had a more relaxing stay anywhere else if we tried, we will definitely be returning in the summer time when the Irish weather is kinder to us. Thank you so much Mary and Dave :)

Room Tip: We stayed in room 9.. The bed was AMAZING and lovely views...

Stayed over the Christmas period, open log fire, plenty of wine and chocolates. This is a family run hotel, they are so welcoming and attentive. Good Value for money, comfortable and beautiful surroundings. Really enjoyed it, will be back again..

To be honest we were attracted by the price and the good reviews on here but were very satisfied with the choice we made. The ' Pilgrims Rest ' is that little bit different. Housed in a rather austere but brightly painted building within its own grounds, and ample parking. You enter through a side door and there is no reception as such but we were approached straight away and shown to our room with the minimum of fuss. It was once used to accommodate ladies visiting Mount Melleray, a Monastery situated next door but has been turned into nice little hotel with its own unique atmosphere. Many of the original features remain, dark wood surrounds and doors but lightened with modern touches with bright curtains and tiling in the bathrooms. The rooms are spacious and even on a hot day, airy, with in our case, views across the valley. We had a large ensuite bathroom with an excellent shower. I personally found the bed a bit lumpy but my wife thought it was ok. Yes it is slightly old fashioned and slightly dated with some of its decor but we found this added to its charm. The location is very quiet but there are some nice walks, including the Monastery grounds. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Full Irish breakfast with all the trimmings was filling and of a good standard, everything freshly cooked. We had an evening meal on the first night. We had not booked but this was not a problem. It was basic fare but well cooked and the food was again good quality. We were visiting relatives in a nearby village and this was an ideal base for a couple of nights. They are open for tea & coffee if you are passing

Stayed here for 2 nights with 3 young kids. Not suitable for this age group, maybe for older visitors. Too far from beach, which we had been told was nearer on booking. Having to pay for the accommodation as soon as we arrived was v. unusual and off putting (in case you ran away!). Breakfast very ordinary and not included in overall price. Found the lady of the house just that "a lady", was very nice and approachable. The gentleman was different but too "full on". Bed most uncomfortable but rooms very clean. Too basic.
