The location was close to Dublin and on the beach. The hotel rooms were rundown. Missing lightbulbs, only 2 outlets for electrical devices including the tv. The exterior courtyard was filthy and the foundation empty.

Room had no chair, oversized furniture and is very tired. The entire hotel needs to be painted and updated. Didn't get one of the newer rooms even though the photo of the room was one. Instead I got an older room at the back. Great location.

Rooms had thin walls, hot and the windows can’t open, just a top sheet tucked into the bed. Staff was friendly, just not the nicest accommodations.
