We happened to stop for breakfast en route from Galway to Dublin on the morning of September 12, 2011 and stopped at the Grand Hotel in Moate. There was a restaurant/coffee shop open. The service was possibly the poorest we have encountered. No smiling, happy faces. It looked like we were greatly inconveniencing the staff...two women working there. It was a most unpleasant experience, and certainly not representative of the people we had met in Ireland in any of the B&B's, pubs and restaurants we stopped at. Unfortunately, as well, the breakfast was of the same caliber as the staff.
