Spent one night here prior to flying home from Dublin airport and you could not wish for a better place for a night’s pampering before returning to home and work! We arrived in the afternoon and enjoyed tea and scones in our room which was spacious and comfortable, although Irish hotels don’t seem to do in for cushions very much – one or two to soften up the chairs would have been perfect.
We tried to use their internet service but couldn’t get it to work, but a member of staff kindly looked us up a couple of phone numbers.
Dinner was fabulous – very long and drawn out, it included a delicious complementary appetiser and a sorbet between courses then a long wait for the main course, I presume because they were pretty busy, but it was all very good and we finished off our wine by a roaring fire in the bar.
Breakfast was good with plenty of fresh fruit, smoked salmon etc as well as cooked options.
The hotel is partly very old, partly more modern but sympathetically done and very spacious and comfortable – the sun was pouring into the conservatory (just as well as I had failed to locate the hairdryer in the depths of the wardrobe!) where we sat with the papers after breakfast and the gardens looked lovely.
The staff were very good – helpful, professional and friendly and I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone needing a place to stay within easy travelling distance of Dublin airport.
