The embassy suite was perfect for lectures with water pen and paper provided. We dined here for lunch on two consecutive days, Really tasty food. The restaurant staff are absolutely A1! There was a delay with...

First of all I'll start with saying this place is laid out like a maze. To get to our 2nd floor room, we had to take 2 separate elevators, take one to floor 1 and then walk down hall and take another to get to floor 2. very very confusing. The room was very hot and when I tried to...

Had my daughters graduation meal here last week and I can't speak highly enough of the place. The staff, food and atmosphere were all excellent. Marion and Sally Ann looked after us very well and there was something on the menu for everyone to enjoy. I look forward to returning again soon

From the first day we made enquirers about having the party here, we were filled with confidence that we had found and selected the best location. We dealt with Tim O'Sullivan in the Hotel in relation to all our queries and requests....

Thank you to all at the Ambassador Hotel for making our wedding in September 2015 a memorable and magical day! Living in London when searching for a reception venue it was important that we found a place which was intimate, personal and on-the-ball. The Ambassador Hotel was all of these and more. From the first meeting Gillian made sure to...

My husband and I were road tripping round Southern Ireland and this was our first stop, for two nights. The hotel itself was good, very nice and clean with good service however, the restaurant needs some work. Firstly, booking a room doesn't come with breakfast, which for me I think is a necessity. It cost an additional €12 each. We...

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in October. Well ran with friendly and super helpful staff. Room was great and was looked after very well when contacting reception. Great location if using the train station and perfect for a business meeting as it has ample parking right outside the front door.
