An excellent stay every home comfort fantastic staff, food, room and facilities more akin to at least a 4 star hotel. Very attentive staff can't do enough for you. A perfect place for the conference a week end away and a holiday. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends and family.

This hotel is excellently placed between nearby Cong and the endlessly beautiful Connemara National Park. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful and the room was comfortable. We partcularly enjoyed having a pint on the tarrace of the charming, typically Irish bar on a sunny evening. Good value for money.

A pleasant place to stay in. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Nice cosy atmospheric bar. Beds are comfortable, rooms are comfortable if a little uninspired in terms of decor. Food in restaurant/bar was very good. All in all a pleasant stay in a quiet village surrounded by beautiful countryside.
