Reviewed 21 July 2009

Setting/location -

Positive points: lovely position on the river with its own small marina, cattle graze the meadows on the other side of what is a sizeable tributary of the river Shannon. Negative points: factory not too far away runs machinery all night as well as the day - clearly audible at night (window open as it is summer!); a map on the internet site would be useful - coming south on the N6, take the R357 eastbound (signposted Clonmacnois) for a short distance, then take a right turn.

Accommodation -

Positive: first-floor bedrooms look out on the river and have direct access to a large, communal terrace with tables and chairs; bedrooms of a good size with en-suite shower/loo. Negative: for a recently-constructed property, there is poor sound-proofing (woken at 02.40 by guests in nearby bedroom who, I think, were 'trying not to make a noise' but, to start with, the 'return' on the doors makes them shut with such a bang; poor closure of shower room door (my wife did not have the strength to shut it); electronic door key did not work - two replacements attempted to no avail so staff had to come up with a master key every time we wanted to enter.

Food -

Positive: good! A limited, but more than adequate menu.

Staff -

Positive: good! Must have encountered five women (no males!) and all very friendly.

Stayed here shortly after it opened. Everything was top-class. Food was brilliant.
