Stayed here for a few days on the beach with our young kids. Very friendly traditional style hotel. Not flash by any means but very welcoming and good value. Great location across the road from the beach. Good food and lively music in the bar at night. A gem of a little hotel.

We just called in for drinks in the public bar. It was a good atmosphere with friendly locals and other visitors all mixing well. There was entertainment in the form of a singer giving very good renditions of Irish folk songs etc. A good evening & not too expensive.
