Hotel is older property. It is large with sometimes maze-like corridors. Rooms can be small unless you upgrade. Internet spotty at times and TV's are older style boxes. Restaurant holds its own against other nice restaurants. Pub is adequate, but sometimes put off by slow service. Located right next to the harbor while also close to many excellent restaurants, shops,... More

This may have been 'Grand' once but sadly, not any more. Our mediocre welcome from reception was followed-up with average attitudes from staff and a real 1970s feel (unintentional) to the rooms and common parts. The hotel needs a lot of money spending on it in terms of a redec and staff training. I wouldn't go back.

We stayed during the recent American football weekend (although we were not going to the game) and the hotel was busy without being overwhelmed. In fact, there was a pleasant bustle about the place.

Excellent hotel. Beautiful grounds, the name of this hotel kind of describes the hotel, it is grand. The service was outstanding as was the rooms. The restaurant was worth a trip there. Our only regret was we only spent our last night in Ireland there.
