The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Bed was a little uncomfortable. We survived, it was only our stay for the night. Other than that, it was a good hotel.

Great place for the price!
Great hotel that was very clean. It's definitely not a new establishment, however they've done a great job with the interior decoration which makes it feel much more new and fresh than it really is! Overall we were really happy with this stay.

Find a B&B Instead
Breakfast was great. That was about it. Rating is not accurate as 4 star hotel. More like an older Best Western. The exterior has been remodeled and common areas. Parking shortage if special event or fully booked. I'd recommend more trash cans in public areas to prevent the trash in parking lot and grass areas. The bar is quite popular (noisy people- problem if its hot and you need to open the window; creates a lot of trash in parking lots; hotel doors shut loudly until 2am). Not the cleanest rooms. Overall disappointed and felt it was way overpriced. Not a great experience and felt upset we spent so much. Would drive out farther and stay at a B&B.

Poor 2.0
I have no idea how this hotel has received so many good reviews. It is a dump! The room looked like a girls dormitory room. I don't mind simple and minimal decor, but this was just old and in need of complete renovation. It smelled of fresh paint, but no evidence of painting was seen. As is typical of Ireland there was no AC which would not have been a problem if the window opened more than 4 inches. We had a view of the back car park which had a motion light that came on repeatedly during the night which made sleeping very difficult. Couldn't wait to check out!

If warm weather, ask about air conditioning.
Hotel itself was very nice and reception was very helpful in getting early room. We were not aware that only common areas had air conditioning and our room was VERY hot. Unfortunately not a good night’s sleep since windows only open a crack. My fault for not doing more research. If staying here in warm weather, check to see if your room has air. Otherwise nice hotel, great live music in restaurant. Very nice staff.
