We stayed here beginning of December for 3 nights. The rooms were very spacious, bathroom looked a little tired and in need of a refresh. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful and a good craic. We only had breakfast here but we was not disappointed. I recommend the omelette or pancakes. Will definitely be coming back to this hotel

Stayed here in November for one night. Close to family down in Cork, so a very convenient location for us.
