My daughter and I were lost in the rain and came in soaked though. The staff were so patient to show us the right way to go on the map- and we dried off, warmed up and enjoyed two 1/2 pints of Guinness for only 5e. Great Place!

The Sliding Rock was a great place to stay with a couple of girlfriends for a short 3 day break for the St Patrick's day celebrations. The food was AMAZING with a daily changing specials menu and generous portions. We had a fabulous breakfast every morning. The staff were, without exception, extremely attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms...

Great food, good price, lovely staff, Friendly atmosphere, lovely Guinness! This place was a lifesaver while visiting a poorly relative over a few weeks in UHG. Don't waste your money or time in fast food joints locally, enjoy relaxing food and drinks at the Sliding Rock !

Rooms really tiny. Over priced could have stayed in a hotel at the price we were charged. Great breakfast. Good standard of evening meal. Saturday night entertainment was great. Only thing let this place down was the room and price.

Thank you for the review and I'm glad you enjoyed the food and entertainment. Since taking over in late 2015 we are gradually improving the facilities as revenue allows. We are limited with space however. We like to thinks that we provide good value for money. I hope we will see again. Aidan and the team.
