Just spent 3 nights in this wonderful hotel. Our twin superior room was spotlessly clean, the beds very comfortable and in the luxurious bathroom very fluffy towels and all Elemis products. Breakfast was wonderful all aided by a very helpful and attentive waiter. Thanks also to Connie who was very friendly and welcoming.

Stopped here for something to eat on the way home from Sligo, was just expecting the normal pub grub but the food here is definitely a lot more than that! Had rack of lamb with mashed potato and veg, lamb was juicy and cooked perfectly. The deserts are to die for and I ended up eating half of my boyfriends...

Met up with some friends at the horse and jockey and dined in the in house restaurant. Met by excellent staff who were very patient and courteous. Ordered black pudding starter and steak for mains. The food was excellent and really well presented. Finished off with a selection of deserts, overall great meal, maybe a little more expensive than normal.

5 of us met in restaurant to catch up and talk. Good place to talk as even though busy there are panels between areas and carpets so not too noisy. Table service was enthusiastic but staff tended to rush away too promptly (as other TripAdvisor reviews noticed) and very hard to catch their attention for more coffee and water after...

Girlfriend booked the horse and jockey for my birthday and it was a dream visit. Clean rooms, friendly staff and lots of great food choices. We had almost all our meals here, not that there was much choice as it's very much stand alone. There is a small confectionary shop nearby but that is about it. In saying this however,...
