This place was deplorable. Had to pay all up front, but after going to our room we knew why, The only thing that was good was the entertainment, music in the pub made the stay and a foliage bus ride. The pub should be shut down and cleaned, dance floor was filthy very cool in there and the fans and...

Again after our conversation the other day, we sincerely apologize for your stay. You seemed to be very bothered about paying upon check-in and that has been our policy for about 20 years and is on every confirmation we send in advance. Words can not fully respond to this trip advisor review. For our returning customers for over 50+ years,...

Our extended Irish family have spent many happy summers in the Catskills, frequenting all of the pubs in the area, including Gavin's. The area is not as hopping as it was when I was a child but we really enjoyed our time at Gavin's. All meals are included and the food is quite good. Everyday we looked forward to 'our...

If you are looking for a relaxing, casual vacation this is the place to go. Our family comes back every year and the kids love it. The food is great, the rooms are clean, and it's just a great place for what a vacation should be. The kids love being able to run around day and night and the adults...

We spent a weekend here with our extended family, as did many other similar groups at the same time. Though most of the buildings are a little old, the Gavin family has done a good job of bringing this place back up to date. The entire area north of the Catskill park known as the Irish Alps has seen better...

Great beer, great bar companions, great music. Might be OK for kids, but the beer flows very freely here, and I don't think I would take young children with me. But for a very good time hearing Irish music and singing along with the friendly crowd, this place cannot be beat.

My extended family and I and friends have been vacationing at Gavin's for years. It's a place where your children can run free without worry which is a rare thing in this day and age. Gavin's has everything you need, and nothing that you don't. The Gavin family and staff are wonderful. The food is good. The rooms are clean....
