Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great hotel in a great location. Rooms very clean. Key cards had to be reset for many of our rooms daily even though cards were not kept close to bank cards. The most disappointing thing was the lack of vegetarian options both in the bistro & restaurant, which is very strange to come across in 2023! In the bistro, there were no vegetarian sandwiches available & only option was a "vegetable plate " from the carvery. We were told that they "sometimes" have a mock meat (chicken) curry available there.In the restaurant, the only options were a starter of breaded brie & a side of chips. A very poor selection.

Had lunch in the bistro today. Food was grand, however I had to write a review in praise of our waitress. Didn't get her name but she went above and beyond to get the kids fed quickly, understood my plain eater and was just all round delight on a long journey cross country. Little things that make all the difference. Thank you and hope this review finds you!

We stayed in Cryan’s Hotel while attending a wedding in Lough Rynn Castle, as this was the closest option available with an accessible room. Two designated parking bays are located in the car park beside reception, which features a two-level check in desk. Two accessible rooms are available at this hotel. This room is an average size with a double bed, a desk with mirror at correct height and a low level safe. However, bedroom carpet was difficult to wheel on, wardrobe railings were high and iron is out of reach. This room features a small balcony with a view of the River Shannon. However, as shown in attached photos, this is inaccessible for wheelchair users due to a large step. I found this room cold and noisy, largely in part to the sliding balcony door which created a steady cool breeze all night, this in addition to street noise made for a poor night’s sleep. The accessible bathroom is essentially divided into two parts, with a spacious wheel in shower consisting of reachable shower controls, removable shower head and shower chair. The sink is inconveniently placed behind the bathroom door, with sink mirror of no benefit to wheelchair users as it’s positioned too high on the wall. Overall, this hotel’s location is ideal with friendly staff; and with some necessary modifications this room could easily be improved, providing a more comfortable stay for wheelchair users.

We visited carrick and had been recommended cryans by friends, it was busy and we were luck to get a table. We met a very pleasant young waiter, Jack, easy irish name to remember.!! He catered so well for our needs We were only to happy to tip.. He was constantly on his feet and was courteous, very friendly and professional. The food too went down well, needless to say we'll be back.

This review is in regards to the restaurant at Cryans. Had an extremely disappointing experience at Cryans last Saturday (2nd July). We had a group booking made well in advance for 13 people. We arrived for our booking at 7pm but they were not ready for us. We were ushered out to the reception to wait where we waited for 30 mins. When making the booking we had advised of a few fairly standard dietary requirements in our group (vegan and vegetarian). While waiting to be seated a member of staff approached me in regards to the vegan and vegetarian requirements and in front of the group states 'what do those people eat' and 'we don't really cater for that'. These comments made by the member of staff at Cryans were extremely inappropriate and those with the dietary requirements felt extremely awkward and embarrassed. The vegan member of our group was not accommodated for (dispite the ample notice given) she was offered the vegetarian option. When we were eventually seated we weren't seated in the main restaurant part, we were put sitting in what appeared to be the cafe part of Cryans that was clearly closed but a make shift set up was thrown together for our group. Seats were not provided for everyone so we ourselves had to rearrange the tables to add the additional seats. Very disappointing experience and unprofessional experience.

Lovely hotel in a wonderful location. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Food and service outstanding. Bedrooms maintained to a high standard, some with beautiful views across to the River Shannon. No surprise to see certificates on display at reception in recognition of the hotel's best management and best customer service in Connacht. We look forward to visiting again, hopefully in the not too distant future.

Just had a one night stay in Cryan's Hotel last Saturday, there was 18 of us in the group. From the first mail to enquire about availability, Geraldine was extremely helpful and flexible with our dates and numbers. We had to push back a month due to covid concerns, and final numbers were not confirmed until the week of the booking. But at all times we were kept in the loop of the situation. The hotel is ideally situated just over the bridge, you are a few minutes stroll from the heart of Carrick and all its bars and pubs. Rooms were very clean and comfortable, all the lads were very impressed with the hotel. Breakfast the next morning was lovely and all the staff we met were very friendly and welcoming. Would certainly recommend and hopefully wil be back myself soon!

We have now lost count of the number of times we have stayed at Cryans. We keep returning because we love the everything about the Hotel - family run, super-friendly staff that are always very welcoming, fantastic breakfast, and the best location in Carrick-on-Shannon. If you can get one of the rooms that overlooks the Shannon.
