As usual the service was fabulous. A very friendly staff who are only too willing to help in any way they can. The rooms are gorgeous. A very high standard and they are spotless. The food is very tasty. There is a lovely family atmosphere in Chesters and you feel like you are visiting friends.

The diet coke was flat so we requested new ones and we were given more flat coke and not asked if we would prefer anything else. My turkey was so very dry it was inedible. I told this to the waitress who cleared my plate away and...

Want a short break - very close to Dublin? You won't beat the Chester Beatty Hotel in Ashford Co Wicklow. This family run business is a fabulous example of what is possible with a lot of time, effort, great taste and a venue with lots of 'potential'. I was blown away. I was expecting high standards - as it came...

While visiting Ireland last weekend we had the pleasure to check into this beautiful hotel. We were warmly greatly by the owners. The rooms were newly renovated and extremely comfortable. The Resturant was fabulous for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the service from the staff was great. They treated you live family! We loved the warm fireplaces and the live music...

Having looked at the reviews of this Inn we booked two rooms and were not disappointed. The rooms were as good as any five star Hotel, warm and cosy - didn't want to leave the bed, it was so comfortable. Lovely top quality dinner (2 nights) and we could see from the packed restaurant that this is a popular place...
