"Management were confused with our booking"
No cot was set up in our room when we had requested one by phone that day. We had booked dinner by email but nobody ever responded to our dinner booking so we didnt know if the timings were booked. It ended up we had dinner in our room because it was so busy and there was nowhere else to buy food. Dinner was expensive. Read less
Likes:
The family room is a nice size
Dislikes:
We were waiting 20 minutes for someone to take our dinner order which was unacceptable, especially with young children

"Pricey for a 2-star guesthouse"
While the enclosed restaurant had good food, the accommodations were reminiscent of a Bed & Breakfast, and at one fifty five was the most expensive I paid this week in the Cork / Kerry area, including compared to some real 4-star hotels, with all the amenities (pool, spa, etc.).
The worst of rip-off Ireland.
Also the meals were pricey - paid five euro less for a similar main course the night before in Glengariff. Read less
