West Cork break
Location of hotel is perfect, friendly staff who are very obliging and helpful. There is a lovely spacious area in the foyer. The only issue I had was value for money in terms of the fish dishes on the menu, which I felt were overpriced for the tiny portion of fish given on one particular evening. Otherwise, it was a lovely break. Lough Hyne which is roughly 5km away is well worth a visit.
