We received a very friendly welcome. We ate dinner and breakfast, both very nice food in a relaxed atmosphere. The room was clean and comfortable at a reasonable price. There are several bars around that have music on in the evenings.

We were expecting a typical Irish B&B...but its a hotel! Keycards, elevator, decent sized bathroom. Breakfast was really nice as well with a lovely dining room. Far exceeded our expectations. Service was absolutely fantastic as well. Only downside is the walls are very thin, aka we heard the guy beside us coughing all night. But that is the ONLY thing... More

Although the accommodation in this establishment is over a bar, it is very much more like a hotel than a B&B. The room I had was very large, very clean and the staff were welcoming, polite and helpful. First impressions of a tiny reception area and a lift that might have seen better days led to a decent stay in... More

This is the second time I have stayed at Durkins and have found it to be very welcoming. Situated in the centre of the town it offers easy access to fast food and pubs and is across the road from a bank which is convenient in rural Ireland. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The big bonus is that it... More

A very welcome stay after a very long and exhausting day The room was fresh and new and at the back of the hotel away from the hotel noise. Room was large, a great ensuite and convenient meals within the hotel. Reasonably priced rooms

This is very nice Family run establishment. The rooms are always perfect and when I come to visit. If I contact them early enough I can get one of the rooms I've stayed in previously facing the town square. I find the food excellent and the staff very friendly.

Our stay at Durkin;s was very comfortable at a very keen rate for b&b. The staff were very friendly, accommodating and professional. We enjoyed a beautiful evening meal in the bar and breakfast fit for a king the following morning. The bedroom was spotless and very comfortable. Overall a great place to stay.
