The iron had a dangerous cord with two sections of exposed wires. The restaurant was loud with small children racing around. Staff were slack, rude and unprofessional. They had no...

Within the hour we were told it was and was booked for 0900. Our room...

This hotel is close to Dublin airport. It offers large rooms at a reasonable price. Main restaurant closed early in the week, but bar food reasonable with large portions (esp. the ribs) Breakfast good tho a little more fruit needed. Staff very friendly Great stopover if flying from Dublin
