I didn't get a lot of sleep the night before and landed in Ireland at 730 in the morning, and got to the hotel at 1100. The check in time was at 3pm, but I asked if I could check in early because I needed to get some sleep. They checked me in on the spot and the porter carried my bag to my room. The room was beautiful with views of the mountains and everything was comfortable. I had a nice hour nap and went down to eat lunch. The food at the lounge was amazing. I ordered the Seafood Chowder and couldn't get enough of it. The wait staff was very friendly and the views from the lounge were just breathtaking. The weather turned bad and I didn't leave the hotel all day, but I didn't mind. For dinner it is recommended that you dress nicely, which was nice. The Maitre'd made sure I had a table with a view and the meal was excellent as well. The dinner was 47 euro and if you can get a half board with the room at a discount, do it.
Breakfast was a buffet, but you could order from the menu and the wait staff would bring you tea or coffee. I used the gym in the morning and then had a massage at the spa. Natalia gave me a really good full body deep tissue massage. I asked for a later check out because of the late massage and it was no problem. I ended up leaving the hotel at 1pm.
