    Bed very high for 64yr old with bad hips. Had difficulty getting up & into the bed. Extremely firm, would have liked bed a little softer.

    We were coming to a wedding but our room wasn’t ready so we had to change in friends hotel room. Thought ye might have provided a room or made sure the rooms for the wedding guests were ready.

    Location beautiful. Staff helpful.

    Overpriced more 3 star than 4 star. Basic rooms. Decor outdated. Not fussy normally, but Friend booked same room that day and got it €80 cheaper. Requested early check-in on bookings.com. Hotel said they would try to accommodate but room wasnt even ready at check-in time had to wait an hour to check in. Room was cold. Breakfast ok.

    The breakfast was excellent and it was so quiet and peaceful and there was so much choice of different foods for the breakfast. The dining room was so big and the staff were so helpful and so very nice.

    The weather could have been better and the only other thing was that the bedroom was very cold at times and also there was no vending machine so that we could purchase a bar of chocolate or taytos, would be very handy for children.The
