Tucked away along a private road this beautifully situated hotel is a real find. A warm welcome at reception then in to a comfortable large bedroom with views over the gardens. Wonderful shower!

This is a lovely quaint hotel. It is quiet, friendly, comfortable and is run by a very friendly family. It has an award winning restaurant offering top class food at good value prices. I have stayed there multiple times on business and I look forward to having a leisure break there. Highly recommended.

I found the hotel on booking.com, got a good deal for one night during our Ireland trip. The service is very nice and the breakfast is pretty good. we ordered the full English breakfast, of course the owner corrected us straight away that it's "Irish breakfast" ! rooms are clean, good value stay.

This is a beautiful hotel. Check in was painless and personal. The rooms are well laid out with nice views. The food is superb. This chef is a genius and I tasted combinations I would never be brave enough to usually order. Once again the set meal has excellent choices with each course blowing your taste buds apart. The service...

This is a lovely hotel, just lovely! I didn't have a car in Ireland, but it's a short taxi ride from the bus station. I will admit the restaurant is a bit expensive (for a student anyways) but it was delectable! Highly recommend!
