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,...

decided to go for drive around blessington lakes and popped in here for a bite to eat... first of, very badly signposted from hotel entrance to the bar, upstairs.. decided to have soup and wraps and chips.. very disappointed with all of it... more lettuce than anything else in the chicken wrap, chips hard and soup could have been hotter......

All were in good condition, and the heating/hot water worked well. There is a pool on site as well as a bar...

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.

The kitchen was grubby and I wouldn't eat anything gets cooked in it. Also it was badly equipped for a weekend stay so I can't imagine having...

Lovely houses to stay in. Fantastic location to walk around, close to the town. The swimming pool is terrible, no kids area, same depth and very small. We had lunch in the restaurant - chips were too salty, soup tasted like from a can, chicken burger was nice. We might come back for summer time as it has great activities...

I booked in with a friend and 5 twelve year old children. We got a fantastic house near reception which was not noisy at all but right beside the Santa Experience and a bit of Xmas Music and cheer which was just what we wanted. Saoirse in Reception deserves a special mention, she did everything she could to make sure...
