This is a lovely little hotel that has been recently updated and hums with all the conveniences you'd hope for in a tiny town on the Wild Atlantic Way. Everything is small but neat, with the rooms arranged over a few floors in the hopscotch manner I've come to expect from tiny towns. The bar was lively and the restaurant was very good, with both dinner and breakfast being very nicely prepared with a good range of options for everyone in our party. The proprietors were quite busy assisting with everything, which I find part of the charm of a small hotel. Our rooms were nicely arranged and quite quiet even though we were next to the road leading to the back parking lot. The bathroom was quite spacious and everything was scrupulously clean. I would happily stay here again on another jaunt along Ireland's Atlantic coast.
