Visiting family.
Excellent service from all the staff.

Excellent hotel in quieter part of the city
This is a very pleasant and well run hotel in a quiet residential part of town.It is about a 15 minute easy walk to the centre and a 10 euro taxi ride back. The railway station is close at hand 10 minute walk but steep to walk back up to the hotel. There is a very traditional pub in the small square near the hotel which is worth a visit. The rooms are super, ours large and very comfortable with great bathroom. Spotlessly clean and the bar/ restaurant area seemed good and reasonable from our limited use-we spent most time in the great places in town. In short a super, well run hotel if not in the thick of the city centre action.

Good quality hotel up a hill from the centre
We stayed for three nights. This is a large older hotel and we were given a room in the newer bit round the side of the main building which meant long walks to and from the car park. The room was fine, everything you need (except aircon which would have helped during the heatwave but which must be a rare need in southern Ireland!). Breakfast was in two categories - full or continental, we only had continental but it was great, here's a tip - book it the night before for a reduced rate. The hill is not too bad but can be a climb after a late dinner downtown, but don't worry there are plenty of taxis and its about 7 Euros.
