The place is wonderful! The only problem we had was the cats. My wife is deathly allergic to cats. It made our stay hard. She couldn’t breath if we were in our room. Other than that John and Lyn were wonderful

Great hotel lovely hosts
Stayed just 1 night. We really enjoyed the place. The food, the bar & the breakfast were very good. I was permitted to park my motorcycle securely in lock up yard. All the staff were very friendly & helpful. There wasn’t much on in lisdoonvarna sadly due to the pandemic. But still enjoyed our visit
