We stayed for two nights at the beginning of May celebrating my sisters marriage. The hotel has an old world charm with really good staff who are very helpful and accommodating. Late night sandwiches and cheese boards were no problem and all requests were handled with good cheer and a smile. Our very comfortable room had magnificent views all round....

The best thing about Enniskeen is the welcome; nothing was too much trouble for Eileen and the team.

On Saturday evening we were relaxing in the bar, having had a family lunch for a...

We stayed for a 2 night mid week break. Our room was a lovely twin room with very comfortable beds. Our bathroom was very large and special with a large pink bath that you could float in. We had lovely views of the Mourne Mountains and the nearby sea. I would highly recommend taking time to do the river walk...

Lovely views of Mourne mountains from dining room. We had an evening meal for 3 and food was edible but very basic, especially trifle for dessert which was so plain and basic. Portion sizes are very small for price charged. I thought waitress was actually going to count the number of chips that she served each if us. A typical...

Beautiful location, friendly and helpful staff, would definitely recommend. The food was great too. The room and bed very comfortable with some lovely old-style furniture. Great view of the mountains from the window. Only thing I would say - needs some roaring open fires to warm up rain-soaked ramblers! But that's a minor point ;)
