If you have a chance to stay here, you'll be delighted. We arrived late after bad directions and GPS on our Hertz Rental car (that's another review). Either because of our difficulties or my personal charm, we were upgraded to a junior suite that was simply gorgeous, beautifully appointed in every way. The suite was huge, elegantly decorated and very...

Had a lovely stay here recently. It was a real treat leading up to Christmas. The whole hotel was decorated beautifully, right down to the Christmas tree in our room. Would hope to make a visit to Hayfield an annual Christmas tradition!

This family-run luxury hotel is probably the best hotel we have stayed in in Ireland. From the moment you walk in the front door, you will be struck by the genuine warmth and friendliness of its staff, and the sheer peacefulness and reassuring comfort of the place. You will find everything you need for a romantic or self-pampering short break...

We just love returning to Hayfield. Wish we could do it more frequently.

My 5th stay at this magnificent hotel over the past three years. Each experience is world class and consistently so. This is my favourite hotel that delivers a 5 star experience yet makes you feel like you are home amongst friends. Staying here should be on everyone's bucket list.
