Stayed for a weekend break and had 2 houses. The houses are a little run down, carpet flooring is never going to last being stain free. Overall we had a great break, the location is beautiful. Close to town yet quiet and easy with kids. The onsite gym is really useful, we didn't get the chance to eat on site...

I know this place has only recently been taken over, however i dont think i will return to eat here due to the caesar salad not looking freshest at all, the chicken wings were covered in a terrible spicy sauce and the scampi was not as described, the service was not the worst considering how busy it was, who ever...

The self catering houses were ok, very basic. Location is fab! Loads to do for kids if you get the weather! No wifi so be prepared for that. The dinner in the hotel was well below average! The chicken in the caesar salad was leftover stuffed chicken & bacon roulade.......which turned out to be the chicken pascal main dish! Reduce,...

Booked for 3 nights, and eventually stayed for 8. Clean, well-managed and extremely comfortable accommodation. Many facilities, close to Blessington and exquisite scenery. Being out of season, the bar and restaurant facilities were not available at all times. The children in nearby houses appeared to be very happy and occupied. I would certainly visit again.
