Reserved and paid for a king bed but received a queen. When we went to discuss with front desk staff, no kings were available. Plus, Our room window opened onto the exhaust fan for the kitchen spraying hot oily air into our room. Front desk said they could offer no recommence, even breakfast. Do not accept room 29 if you go there. The hotel is otherwise quaint though older furnishings and rotting wood. Area offers relatively little to see or do. Don’t recommend.

This town is right out of a storybook with so much charm and really allows you to see the Irish countryside. The hotel was lovely and the nightly music in the pub attached to the hotel was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious too. The town is teeny and easy to walk down to the waterfront and enjoy the views. There is no shopping and minimal food options but that was to be expected with this village. Definitely a highlight of our trip to Ireland.

Overall, this was a disappointment. The room was old and musty smelling. For a family of 4, we were given two small towels. It was hot. There was limited dining in the pub only and the food was "meh." I understand the cook was in hospital, so I understand that. But overall for the price, VERY underwhelming. Would not stay here again.

Highly recommend
The staff was wonderful. Very friendly and very helpful. The hote Is old but the beds are comfortable, the bathroom has been updated nicely, and the place is clean. The only thing I would Have wanted was some air conditioning g, but that’s not a thing in Ireland! But we had a nice stay in a quaint Irish town. We really loved two guys sitting in the bar downstairs singing Irish folk songs and playing guitar.
