So much thought went into this menu, and that was clear from the moment we sat down. Each dish was beautifully presented. We were with a big group of about 20, but you would have thought there were only 4 of us; the wait staff...More

The breakfast here is so good. We stay at the hotel just for the breakfast. We came from the Inchydony resort in West Cork, which has all the same items on their breakfast buffet, but the River Restaurant is 10 times better. It must be...More

We were staying at the hotel and had dinner in the restaurant the first night but there was a drinks reception on in the hotel lobby and an overflow in the bar/restaurant which made it very busy and very noisy which was a real shame.

As I mentioned in my review of the hotel, my dinner in the River Restaurant was very disappointing - tasteless and severely over-cooked and yet described, by the server, as freshly prepared! I would be very surprised if the main had not seen the inside...More

Good Day One and All! My family (5) will be staying here over both Christmas and the New Year Holidays this year. We are hoping to find some suggestions for both Christmas Day Dinner and New Year's Eve / Day festivities at a local restaurant and / or pub. Especially some local live traditional Irish music and dancing. could some of the locals perhaps suggest some such places for our family to visit? I also wish to surprise my family with some live Irish Music and Dancing as my small 6 year old daughter loves watching Irish dancing and listing to the music. Does anyone perhaps know of a school of dance that would perhaps perform for us at the hotel when we arrive on the 19th of December? Would certainly be willing to pay for such a surprise for my family. This trip is perhaps my last Christmas with my family due to health reasons and really want to make it so special for my family and especially my youngest Angela Frances Eleanor Agnes Moran Tierney. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. All will certainly be appreciated. Best Regards, Robert McAllen Texas & Querétaro, México
