Dublin, Ireland
Reviewed 9 February 2016

Excellent stop-over for trips to the North from West Coast of Ireland. Friendliness and old style atmosphere. Good breakfasts and bar food. Reasonable rates for two night and week-end rates. Dance fraternity were in town for a local charity in the ballroom so it was pretty packed Friday night. Saturday for Wedding Reception.
