Everything here was to a very high standard, from the staff to the food to the drink, the whole setting was excellent

The bar was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful but Covid ruined the experience.... I know there could be minimal interaction and they couldn't do much about this but some light background music would have lightened the mood a little... It was a...cold experience because there was no sound whatsoever other than cutlery being used. I wasn't expecting a rave or a dance but some light music would have been nice. On a better note, we were late out one evening (after travelling to Dingle) and were going to be about 20 mins late for our meal time, we rang to explain and they were kind enough to accommodate us when we explained.More

Was left a little bit disappointed, perhaps due to the good reviews here. Still ok food but had better elsewhere for a lower price

Similar to a lot of nearby hotels where you can order food in the bar, The River Bar is another great example of where you can find great mid-range food in a comfortable atmosphere. More formal than bar food in the states, yet not as...expensive as a full high-end restaurant.More

We always eat in the bar when we stay here. The staff are always very nice and in particular one guy. Unfortunately don't know his name but he is there a long time and we look forward to his warm welcome and great personality when...we are there.More

We have stayed here several times in the past, and always found this a cosy place. Today went for dinner with our 4 years old. We had burger, sea bass and fish for our son. Quality was great, the taste really great on all 3...meals. We also had a soda, glad of wine and a beer. The service was way better than what we have experienced in other restaurants. It’s a brilliant place to bring kids, they have toys in the hall for kids, the hotel and staff are perfectly nice. And the price was ok to. This is second time we went for dinner here. And we will be back. I can only recommend this place as a restaurant and hotel to. The only reason we’re not staying here any more, is there are no swimming pool.More

Staff were helpful and friendly. Food great with a good selection. Loved that you could order your hot breakfast after the cold elements of the buffet.
