Do not miss this place!
It was absolutely amazing. The staff went above and beyond to take care of me and see to it that I had the best vacation. They even served me a private breakfast in the tea room when I overslept! I highly reccomend this hotel. I was visiting a friend in Maynooth so I simply took the taxi where I needed to go. Wish I could stay there forever! The staff is truly incredible and they have done a fantastic job.

30 minutes for checkin; food was great at wedding, next morning woke at 10 and rang reception for breakfast time and told 10 but they would ring down and arrange a breakfast, got there at 10.15 and told none available. At checkout told we must pay for breakfast even after not having it, also bar at wedding was cash only which seemed strange

Quiet Elegance
A highlight of our trip in Ireland! This hotel is superb. Highest Quality inclusions. Exceptionally comfortable bedding. Quiet with Very friendly staff. A five-star experience you'd expect from high end hotels in New York or London. We'll come back just to experience this hotel again.

Excellent service, enjoyable stay
Excellent hotel, although it looks slightly dated from outside the inside is well kept and tastefully decorated. The rooms are very welcoming, nice and clean and the surroundings are peaceful. The in house restaurant is a bit pricey but the service and food were both very good. Overall I enjoyed my stay and will be happy to stay again.
