Hylands Burren Hotel
Posted May 10, 2011 on Hotels
My partner and I booked a 3 night stay at Hylands Burren Hotel in Ballyvaughan. It is a beautiful area of natural beauty. The hotel receptionist was very friendly. Our room No 42 was on the ground floor, small, dark, dingy and had cobwebs on the curtain rail. I complained to the receptionist, but she could not move us until our last night as the hotel was full. There was a general air of neglect about the hotel and no where comfortable to sit and read. The breakfast was just about adequate, although served by a delightful lady. The outside of the hotel has big planters but nothing growing in them. Not a flower or plant to be seen. Given that we were in the Burren, it just seemed lazy and neglectful. On our last night we dined in the hotel. Bar style food. We both had fish and chips, which was small and very expensive at €15.50 each. Given that prices have come down dramatically in Dublin, I feel that they need to be more competitive. All in all we would not stay there again or recommend it to others.
