We stayed overnight while attending a wedding in the area. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The full Irish breakfast was excellent the following morning, freshly cooked and well presented.

Hi. I have to admit to being completely taken aback by your review and I am equally taken aback that you did not complain or ask to speak to me the following morning. We certainly do not take safety and especially Fire Safety lightly and I can assure we would never ever cover a smoke alarm. We detest guests who think they can smoke in rooms and to that end we ensure that all sensors and alarms are checked regularly. Towels are replaced daily and we use a reputable linen company for all of our linen. Wi-Fi code is in the welcome pack and our wi-fi code cards are at reception as you check in. Unfortunately there was a fault on the phone line and that has since been fixed. I apologise for that. If there are photos I would be obliged if you would also send them to me as I refute any comments that suggest we endanger anyone by covering detectors.
