The place looked the same as it was two yrs ago both inside and out but you cannot improve on perfection. As ever John was a great host and all the amenities were in place. The staff are most obliging and as soon as you walk in you feel at home. A delightfully clean bar served with a smile to all. Keep up the good work.

John and his staff are the definition of Proper Irish Hospitality. They treated me like I was someone they had known for years, and were always forthcoming will good chats, help and advice on the local area. Great place for a pint, possibly one of the best pints in Ireland. Interesting locals too! The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and for the price, I honestly doubt you could do better anywhere along the West of Ireland, considering there was breakfast included. All the best John and we'll catch you again, either there or down our way!

It is the host John that makes this property a great experience. He greeted us on our arrival and provided great information on the area and where to eat, he was an exceptional host. The breakfast was 10/10 and I would love to come to visit.
