I stayed here for just one night as part of a Groupon deal which included a seaweed bath & afternoon tea.
The hotel is very nice - spotlessly clean, quaint and cosy. The bedroom was a good size, with a nice bed. The bathroom was a bit on the small side & could do with some modernizing (some stains on the grout and in the sink due to age) but apart from that the accomodation was very comfortable. The heating was on in the room so it was really very warm the entire time we were there - the thermostat in the room didnt seem to work to turn it down at all. But that was only a minor issue.
The staff at reception were friendly. When we arrived they couldn't provide a seaweed bath for the two of us so we were given a €10 voucher to use in the bar instead.
We had dinner and some drinks in the pub (The Inn). There is another bar at the other end of the hotel but we didnt get a chance to try that one. The food in the Inn was really good & fairly priced (€20 for a filet mignon, which was really tasty). Again, the staff in the bar were chatty and very welcoming. It was quite busy & the food took a little while to arrive but it was worth waiting for. The atmosphere was nice, cosy and relaxing. There was some live music in the evening, which was nice.
Breakfast the next morning was also served in the Inn. It is a sit down affair, rather than a buffer. Everything was really fresh & tasty.
I really couldn't fault this place. It is good value and we had a nice, relaxing stay. The location is nice (although you would need a car if you were planning to visit any nearby areas or any parts of Dublin as this place is on a country road and I dont think there is any public transport nearby). Definitely worth a visit.
