Good standard

Pros: Good size rooms.
Cons: Range of food in restaurant.
Location: There are so many sights to see within a few miles - a fabulous coastline!
Good standard of hotel for the cost of rooms. Rooms are of a good size and standard. Only other comment is that it is badly signed posted from the main Dublin Road whilst coming out of town. There is a great sign in the other direction. Apart from that I would recommend the hotel.
