Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice building and dining room and we used to go weekly until they put the price of the breakfast up by €2 while at the same time taking items off the breakfast, hash brown and black pudding gone… sausages used to be better , they now taste like really low quality. Wish it was better as I really liked going here weekly for breakfast on my day off

Lovely old building that has been tastefully restored to provide an insight to the past when the canal system was the main mode of moving cargo across the country. Very nice experience.

Our family spent the weekend in Clones and arranged to finish our walking tour of Clones at the Ulster Canal Stores. We were not disappointed. There were 14 of us and the room was set up beautifully for us. We received the most magnificent welcome from Deirdre and Sharon, who were so helpful. The tea and scones were delicious! Thanks for everything guys - it was brilliant!

Spending a weekend in Clones included a visit to the Ulster Canal Stores. And what a surprise it was. Inside this beautiful stone building, the seven of us were given a great welcome by Sharon and Deirdre. After a walk around the Lace museum, we watched a short video. Then it was time for tea, coffee and delicious warm scones with yummy jam and cream. A wonderful time, thanks to Sharon and Deirdre.

This place is the jewel in the crown in the heart of Monaghan. A must see place on your visit. This venue surpassed my expectations from the moment I arrived to the moment I left, with some of the most attentive staff I have ever came across.
Beautiful setting, great location, lovely exhibition area with a more intimate meeting room for our small seminar, the room had great acoustics and lighting with a lovely view of the canal.

I would 100% recommend this venue to anyone.

Thanks Dianne and Pelim.

The tour brings you around Clones, a small town with an unexpected amount of history. The round tower, "wee" abbey, Celtic cross, churches and motte and bailey are all tourist destinations on their own. To have them all in one small place, small enough to get a tour around is astonishing. My tour guide was George, who seemed to have no end to the amount of details he could tell us about the area. Definitely worthwhile.
