But it's the staff who definitely make it a wonderful stay, from the lovely girl at check in to the great staff in the bar

Very nice hotel but no atmosphere though. The bar is cold and pints aren't that nice. The staff are very attentive and polite. We got great deal on booking.com but prob wouldn't stay again. No complaints just wasn't my cup of tea. Nothing really in the area to do.

The main drawback of this hotel is that it is in the wrong place - Balbriggan has very little going for it other than a plethora of fast food outlets - could not find a decent place to eat so we drove the 5 miles to Skerries each night where there are several very good restaurants. Why did we not...
