I went here for lunch with my family and we really enjoyed ourselves. I have one very picky eater belonging to me and the waiter was more then happy to adjust the menu to suite my sons needs. Our food was good hearty food which is what you need after a long walk on the beach!

Came here on a national holidays trip, after reading reviews on here was a bit doubtful. I don't know how it has some negative reviews. We arrived very late on first night, everyone was so friendly. Food is excellent, excellent service. Friendly staff. Very clean and comfortable rooms.

We had a great night of Irish entertaiment...singin, stepdancing and...
