Does the hotel have a lift - my mother is bad on her legs
Yes, it does have a lift/elevator...a rarity in Ireland for sure!
Yes there is a small lift.
My father is in a wheel chair and he was able to stay there. They have a room on the bottom floor with no stairs, you can easily access the breakfast room and conservatory/garden. The lift is right down the hall. Make sure you mention your requirements while booking to make sure you receive an appropriate room.
The answer is sort of. There is a lift, but to get in you must have someone go up stairs to the main lobby, then downstairs to open a lower door that is ramp accessible. Even after using the lift to go to an upper floor, some of the rooms still have short staircases to access them so make sure that you tell them that you must have a room that is totally accessible. We did love the place and managed just fine. There are just a few caveats.
