I was hesitant at first to plan something mainly over the phone and email but I had nothing to worry about! Our first...

We were lucky enough to have purchased a Groupon deal for a 1 night stay for 2 with breakfast for £49! Hard to beat! This is a lovely location & my husband & I treated ourselves to a Sunday night stay (no kids, no cooking!) always a bonus. We were on the first floor & our room had been recently...

Enjoyed our stay for two nights at this hotel. Our room on the first floor, which had recently been refurbished, was excellent for a three star hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel contacted us two days before arrival to enquire if we wanted to book our evening meal in the restaurant. We did this and, in fact, were...

I had lunch at the Marine Hotel and found the surrounding very beautiful. However the meals were overpriced! The food was cooked well but the portions were tiny. My husband order fish and chips and had to pay extra for the chips so it cost seventeen pounds for his meal!!! I ate out a lot while visiting Ireland and felt...

There was really nothing remarkable about this hotel save it being across the street from the sea. The outside was unremarkable, the dining and bar areas were average. Our room was very small and the bathroom fan rattled all night long making for a rough night of sleep.
