We stayed on St Patrick's day. We were looking forward to seeing Johnny Brady in the dance hall later in the evening. We arrived at 8pm and after checking in went to the bar for a drink before the dance. The bar is in the dining room and when we asked if there was another bar we were directed to Berthas where there were no customers! We stayed in the dining room where, at 10 pm, a musician turned up and played some very good music for an hour or so. Afterwards we went to see Johnny Brady and enjoyed that very much. Good venue, good atmosphere, nice crowd. When we returned to the main hotel and looked for a drink from the residents bar, we were directed to the dining room again. Our only companions were all of the bouncers from the dance hall! We stayed for one drink. We didn't feel that we were wanted there.
The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nice. The price was reasonable.
I'll never stay again though because of the dreary and unwelcoming bar arrangements.
