Very nice hotel with a short distance to town
Posted Sep 28, 2016
This was a very nice hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived in the midst of a wedding reception in the lobby which made it special. After checking in, we decided to head to the hotel pub which was filled with the wedding guests. The bartender were great and made our drinks to our specifications. We had some very tasty snacks and relaxed as we did "wedding people" watching and the enjoyed the procession of the wedding couple as they passed us by. We were also on our honeymoon and so wished them well on their new journey together.
The room was clean, spacious and modern. We had a hot tub on the balcony and enjoyed it both nights we were there despite the drizzly weather. It was fun and different. The hotel is family friendly and had an outside petting area with farm animals and was great for families with children and as adults we enjoyed it as well.
The hotel breakfast was similar to all the other hotels, with typical Irish fare as well as plenty of cereals, pastries, fruit and breads to satisfy any traveler. Our first night's dinner was just so-so. I had ordered the prime rib which was really a few slices of overcooked beef.
The only complaint we had was the uncomfortable pillows which made our sleep less than restful.
The hotel is a short drive to town. We chose to take a cab in for dinner at a wonderful Italian restaurant so as not to deal with driving or parking issues.
Overall this is a very nice hotel and we would definitely recommend it.
