Great breakfast with a number of healthy options in addition to the full Irish
Room could benefit from a lick of paint and some TLC but it was generally fine. Spacious and had a bath & shower. Main reason for 3 star rating is that our room faced the dual carriageway so the traffic noise kept us awake, and woke us early in the morning. If you were able to get a quieter room in another part of the hotel then it would probably get a "very good" rating.

This is a fine hotel with professional and welcoming staff. Accommodation is excellent and the bar is spacious and again has very friendly and welcoming staff. Very good breakfast although the coffee could be improved. Its a little out of city centre (5K)and cost 10 euro in but 14 euro out. We will have no problem returning and it was great value for money once more with Roomex.

Directions to hotel on website were wrong. Reception staff excellent. Room was clean & bed was comfortable but decor was only average & quite dated. Bath was too narrow, taps in an awful place. Bar staff excellent but food average.
