We stayed at the Bracken Court for a three night family break over St Patricks weekend, went into Dublin City centre for the parade with the kids and back to the hotel for the evening and dinner, unfortunately we were not allowed into the bar for food - food not being served platters only!! - the picture says it all!!!...

Really enjoyed lunch here. Arrived around 2.45 carvery finished at 3.00. We opted for the salad bar. Fantastic choice. We had a mixture of potato with pesto and basil, olives, coleslaw, chick peas noodles and carved ham. The two salads cost a very reasonable just over 11 euro. There was a lovely selection of desserts which we declined (too full)...
