Stop here if you are ever on a Cork to Killarney/Tralee trip. Also worth calling in here for a brunch, lunch or coffee anytime. All food I ever got here was great. I have eaten here for years and was always happy.

From the moment we walked through the door the staff at this hotel were superb-I simply cannot fault their attitude and application. A credit to this hotel. The food was excellent-both bar and restaurant available and for light snacks a cafeteria at the front of the hotel, which was always busy. Lots of food is sourced locally from small producers...

We had starters, main course and dessert in the bar (Dan Buckley Bar) the food was delicious, a small wait because the food is cooked to order. But everything was delicious and piping hot. The staff were friendly and courteous, service was great. I would definitely recommend it.

The hotel and facilities were fine. The bathroom felt dated and although we stayed in a superior room it definitely didn't provide anything beyond standard. BUT that being said the staff were amazing. From the bar staff, waiters, restaurant staff and cleaners; they deserve 5 stars!! If you want to be welcomed with smiles and an unfaltering willingness to help...
