Stayed one night in this hotel with my son. Looked for 1 hour earlier check in and 1 hour late check out in order to better suit my timetable. We were told it 'shouldn't be a problem' but it was albeit we were given a late check out of 30 mins instead of the hour.
The hotel is situated in a magnificent area. The scenery is some of the best in Ireland and the gardens of the hotel are amazing. It's really well located away (but close enough!!) from Dublin and within short drives of some of the best places in Ireland to visit I.e Glendalough and Powerscourt.
The bar in the hotel is very good with amazing bar staff, they couldn't be more accommodating or polite along with being good craic! The food is good and very tasty however pricey for what's served up. Kids are accomodated excellently both by the menu and the staff.
The rooms are ok. In my opinion the rooms are not as good as the hotel, bar or food would lead you to believe. They are a bit dated but are comfortable.
The jewel in the crown of this hotel is it's pool. It's 18m approx and the warmest pool I've ever used!!!
Overall this hotel is very nice, and I'd recommend it for a short stay. Best advice I can give is ask for a room at the front of the hotel as there isn't a view out the back at all
