The Horse & Jockey Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 February 2012

We were blown-away at the quality of this hotel.

We only intended this as a stop-over point on our way through Ireland on a 10 day driving tour. Upon entering our room for the night we wished we had booked in longer.

Stunning accommodations, very comfortable and well-appointed beds. Friendly staff and helpful staff. When I had trouble with the wi-fi they very graciously offered me internet cables and assistance. Breakfast was fantastic, well-made and very generous.

We did have a chance to use the leisure facilities before leaving and they are also stunning.

This hotel is a jewel hidden in the Irish countryside. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed staying here. The food was good and the swimming pool etc are excellent. The rooms where really nice and comfortable. I know it might sound crazy but a nice little touch was the free large bottles of water you got to the room everyday. Only one thing i was not mad on was the bar. This is personal preference and i am not sure if it was the time of the year when we went but it was very quite. We headed down to Cashel and the hotel organized a taxi for us, which was not too expensive. The town itself was great. Overall I would definitely come back, especially in the summer time !!!!

I spent the afternoon at the spa with friends thanks to a present of a gift voucher and would highly recommend a visit! The package included a facial, massage and afternoon tea - so both body and spirit catered for. The area is condusive to relaxation and the staff are very pleasant, professional and excellent at ensuring that you leave the outside world behind! Afternoon tea was served in the cafe area of the main hotel and was served "old-style" on linen cloth covered tables with cake plates (4 varieties of fingers sandwiches, scones and 4 varities of cake - not so good for the New Year diet). What a lovely way to spend an afternoon!
