Stayed here one night after our trip to Dingle Peninsula and then on our way to Cliffs of Mohrer. Arrived for an early dinner on Easter and the restaurant was jumping but we sat at the bar and the bartender was very friendly despite being very busy with a big Easter crowd and a big hurling match.

I stayed 1 night here and arrived a bit early for check in right from Shannon Airport. The reception was able to get me right into a room which was so welcome after a long night of travel from the US. The room was large and comfortable, with lovely bedding. This is such a charming place to stay, with comfortable...

What a wonderful hotel. The front desk staff was beyond helpful trying to get us on a Tour to see the Cliffs of Moher when our Tour got cancelled and there was a bus strike. The food in the Poet Bar was amazing. Very quaint lobby where you could sit and have Tea or a Drink.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night. The room was big and clean. The staff was nice and welcoming. We checked in late and were upgraded without asking. We had a pint and an Irish coffee at the bar. We really liked the sitting areas in the lobby. I would stay here again.
