Stayed over the period of the Irish Open, had a really great time, Maureen was a superb host sorting taxis out for our trips to the course. Rooms were excellent and the breakfast is 1st class. If you needed anything staff would do anything to get it for you. I would recommend a stay here as I will be back again.- Mr D Jones
