Lived up to all the reviews. Excellent hotel. Great food and helpful and professional staff. Nice outdoor area. Cleanliness most impressive -noticed skirting boards being cleaned as I passed by a bedroom being prepared for next guest! Would certainly stay again without hesitation. Located just off the M8 so an easy drive to places like Cork and Cobh.
