The hotel offered outstanding rooms making for one of the most restful nights of our trip. A great intermediate stop to explore both Dingle and Killarney. We enjoyed the dining room both for dinner and breakfast. The room was beautiful and well worth the price.

Located outside Tralee's city center, this hotel is very up to date. My very large room had a very clean and modern bathroom. The hotel itself is beautifully furnished and appointed. The food service is excellent and well prepared. Service was outstanding. Thumbs up for me.
