Being hard put for accommodation after a long drive we stayed one night at the Handlebars B & B. We were asked to pay on arrival. The place was clean enough but the decor was tired and the rooms gloomy, as was the bedroom which was large. We were in a back room so away from the main road outside,...

Stayed here because I was unable to get a room in the city centre. Ended up being perfect for what I needed. Right across from the train station, I was given a spacious en suite room, and had a desk which is what I wanted for work. It was actually only a 15 min walk for me into town and...

The room was clean but small. We could barely open our suitcases. We were on the backside. It was very quiet. The breakfast was good. There are a lot of stairs. It is across from the train station. A short was to the city centre.

We recently stayed here as we were attending a concert in the marquee. It is right across from the train station and just a ten minute stroll from the town. We were allocated a room on the top floor which was spacious clean and comfortable. Although the hotel was fully booked we didn't hear a peep from anyone all night....

Its a little walk from City Centre, but not too far, but my daughter and I were a little uneasy, especially at night. It was pretty plain but clean. The breakfast was about the same as a hostel, if you don't want the cooked breakfast. The cooked breakfast was not that great, either, and it was over early. Overall, the...

The outside of this place is very deceiving to the quality of the interior. Although the "lobby" has its charm. The rooms are dated with hollow panel doors and dark and dreary hallways. This place seems to be a favourite with stags and hens, so on arrival the main conversation is of deposits. €25 per person( I had to pay...
