I stayed at the Harlequin last week and found it a very pleasant place. Easy car parking and very friendly staff. The receptionist was very friendly and pleasant to deal with. Breakfast was offered but sadly had not time for it in the morning. I'd definitely stay there again on my next trip to Mayo.
Highly recommend to anyone.

Bedroom was too hot, the radiator stayed on all night ...
I can recommend this hotel for a short stay. The room was quite adequate and service throughout was excellent (especially the young man in the dining room on the morning of Sunday 27 September). There was a very good choice for breakfast. Direct entry to the hotel from the car park was a bonus.
