A fabulous venue and the staff and management couldn't do enough to ensure that the day was a complete success. Would highly recommend this venue for your wedding. Food has been of a consistently high standard and the portions are huge! True Irish hospitality

The staff were welcoming on arrival, the hotel is well decorated. The room met all my needs. I'm not sure the bathroom floor had been cleaned and the towels weren't soft, but the bed was comfortable and the views were beautiful. Food the next morning was lovely, staff were helpful in directing me. Prior to my visit staff were able...

We selected Racket Hall from a Google Map search of the general area with a Trip Advisor check for security. Couldn't believe how good it looked on arrival. Effective booking and check in then found an outstanding room. Ate in the connected bistro restaurant - very good. and value in the extreme!

Stayed for 1 night in this hotel. First time back since 2011 and was dissapointed. At check in was informed no WIFI in rooms, a disaster for business folk. Hotel felt neglected as I walked through, dinner was ok but breakfast was again lacking. No marmalade on table, soda bread tasted sale......such as pity as in the past I have...

Stopped off here for a quick drink. While the hotel was extremely busy with a Country and Western gig and a hen party, this doesn't really excuse the overpriced and incompetent service. Don't ask for anything more sophisticated than a pint of lager because the staff aren't trained to provide it. If you fancy waiting an hour for a cocktail...

I can not say enough about this hotel.We had such a good stay here,rooms spotless ,food excellent and staff nothing was a problem. Breakfast was probably the best we have had(especially the home made scones).We would not consider any other hotel when returning to the area .

I stayed here for a couple of days while working in Ireland. The hotel is very big with lots of character. The food was good and staff were all very friendly from the bar staff to the reception. Huge car park and although I didn't use the golf course next to the hotel I did have a look and it...

This little gem is an oasis of tranquility in a lovely rural setting. I would recommend this hotel to anyone seeking old world charm combined with all modern day comforts ! However ...... while the rooms are very good and everything is spotlessly clean....... while the food is of a very high standard simply prepared and served in a similar...
