The deluxe room with its balcony was spacious and definitely has additional touches to their standard rooms. The view out of the back of the hotel takes in the trees and golf course beyond. The breakfast, lunch and dinner were fantastic and worthy of their own reviews. Already

We stayed for three nights in the courtyard lodges. The beds were v comfy and it was great to have three bedrooms with two children. When we arrived the fire as well as the heating were on so it was roasty toasty but it was a little hard to cool down so our toddler found it hard

Best off getting a taxi. It cost us 35 Euros to get to the airport.

Would just plan the time out some first. Not a ton to do on premises with the little ones but the wildlife park is right next door and they have a heated swimming pool as well. The town next door is Midleton and very small quaint village. Suggest some trips into Cork and maybe across to Cobh as well..they have some touristy stuff there. Perhaps a train ride to Dublin as well. Imagine the Christmas event is great.

"I had broken bed and mattress so cannot recommend !!"
"Ensure you get the room you booked and paid for, wouldn't recommend Classic rooms, not 5 star luxury"
"Guaranteed a comfortable and peaceful sleep at this location"
"201 was overlooking the front on the hotel which the kids loved. It is right off the elevator which really suited us"
"Request one of the renovated rooms. Some are new some aren't. Back of the hotel is quiet."
