I stayed here with my wife for 2 nights. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the rooms behind the small country looking pub facade. 2 generous double beds, plenty of floor space and a good sized bathroom. The owner was very professional, working bar and front of house. We ate there and it was traditional pub fare and were able to have drinks there as residents while complying with Covid restrictions. I would highly recommend staying here.

We chose Coachmans for a 2 night staycation in Co Kerry, having previously stayed there in 2015 with a Vagabond tour and remembered it to be good small hotel in the city centre. Now that we live in Ireland, we picked it again. Rooms are a good size, clean, and furniture/fixtures are not worn. Location is walking distance to everything in the small town. Street parking. Several breakfast options, with tables spaced for Covid distancing. We also enjoyed a nice dinner in the hotel restaurant the first night. It wasn't crowded but the weather was terrible that evening. Only "nit" was not providing any body soap/body wash, hair conditioner, or lotion. We were provided two small bottles marked Shampoo. When I asked about soap or body wash, they said the Shampoo bottles is all they offered and it was all purpose for washing too. We would return again if we are staying in the area. If you aren't looking for fancy or loads of services, I would recommend for a clean comfortable stay at good value in a great location.

The food was disgusting, I ordered the curry and it was not palatable. The burger looked like it came from a kids play centre. Stay away if you’d like normal bowel movements. The staff hadn’t a clue and kept forgetting to bring things to the table.

Had not booked in advance but were delighted a room was available when we called in to check. Nice room with everything you would need. Breakfast was served from 8.30 am and was lovely. Breakfast was served to the table - fresh fruit salad with greek yogurt was gorgeous. Choice of cereals, yogurts, juices and hot food -freshly cooked. Great central location and would have no hesitation recommending or staying again. Nice bar and restaurant area. All covid procedures in place.

We stayed in this Hotel for a couple of nights at the end of August. Padraig welcomed us warmly. We were a little early to check in so we had a bowl of the most delicious Sea Food Chowder for lunch, sitting out in the sun on the street. Our bedroom was huge and it had a colossal bathroom, everything was there, Tea & Coffee making facilities, and all the lovely bits and pieces in the bathroom and a really comfy bed. Breakfast was very good, of course right now there are no Buffet meals owing to the Covid 19 crisis. Our breakfast was served to us at the table and it was very good all served with lovely fresh brown soda bread. We had one evening meal which, again was really excellent, good choice and good quality. There was a great buzz in the dining room with I’d guess a number of locals dining which is always a good sign. Padraig and his sister Siobhan have an excellent Covid 19 policy in place and the whole place is scrupulously clean. We were really impressed too with the bar which had transparent Perspex screens hanging from unit above, they were so clean and transparent you had to do a double take to see if they were there at all!! The payment system is a kind of pay as you go. So, if you have a drink or meal you settle up at the end of it, which makes for no shock on check out!! Only one minor suggestion, I circular towel holder put on front of the large washing area in bathroom would be very useful. We will most definitely be back…..who needs The Sheen Falls!!

Room Tip: We were in room 12 (described above) but it was a little noisey, on main street. Next time...
