On arrival the castle looked fantastic. Our room wasnt ready when we arrived but we just had to wait about half an hour, got food in the Indigo Lounge which was lovely, busy restaurant but we werent waiting very long.
We got a free upgrade to Executtive Room on the 4th floor. Bed was massive with a pillow mattress, it was sooo comfy! 2 velux windows at the side of the bed, with remote control blinds! Flat screen TV with a good few channels. Tea, coffee making facilities and sparkling water. Bathrobes, ironing board & safe also available there was a bath & separate shower was hoping for a jacuzzi tho...ah well cant get everything!!
The nites we stayed there were christmas parties on, there was carol singing in the lobby till about 8 and it could be heard all around the castle, it was real christmasy!!
Bus service to town was just 5 mins walk from the castle, it comes every 10mins, turn right, then left, then right, bus stop at the sea front. takes you straight into Abbey Street for about 1.20euros it takes about 20mins.
We stayed in the castle in the evenings, had drinks in the Knights Bar, very warm friendly bar. Note to smokers, your not allowed take your drink outside with you while you have a ciggy, i got given out to by the bouncer in front of everyone at the christmas party!! Very embarrassing....
Overall i would def recommend staying here, we got a special deal for 2 nites, eur225, shop around, you'll get cheaper than whats on the website!!
