This is the hotel in town that any tour group coming to town stays. The WiFi is dismally slow, the furniture is a bit beat up. There is mold in the corners of the shower. The options for breakfast are the same no matter how many days you stay. The staff were all pleasant and accommodating. Having stayed throughout Ireland,...

At Reception we were given a beautiful room with all the amenities and that set the tone for the rest of our stay. The meals served - breakfast and dinner...

We stayed here as part of a tour group. Rooms were decent, nice tub and excellent water pressure in the shower. Breakfast was very good, location is great, staff is friendly. Only complaint is our room was a bit stuffy even with windows open. (They only open a bit at top). Would certainly recommend!

The hotel is situated in the middle of town so very convenient to walk around. The staff is friendly. The rooms are clean and roomy. Free parking on the street. Court side rooms are clustered around the interior roof so can be a little dark but are quieter. There is a restaurant and cozy bar in the hotel. Food is...
