The receptionist we dealt with was lovely, she directed us to our room which was on the third floor. The room was nice and spacious, the bathroom was fine, maybe a little...

This hotel has a lot to offer. The staff couldn't be more helpful. Very clean and well-appointed rooms. I wish they had an ice machine available, but it seems none of the hotels we stayed in in Ireland had them--maybe it's not standard there as in US. It is very convenient and close to many attractions. Comfortable beds, fast wifi,...
