Nice old hotel close to the beach, so no ac, rigid beds, narrow tub/shower, and limited dining opportunities. But the location was great for relaxing & and acted as a nice base to explore Ireland. We would stay here again.

Don't stay here

Pros: Walk by the sea.
Cons: Almost everything the sea is free.
Location: Location is on the boardwalk so you could walk by the ocean ... but there were several hotels nearby that looked nicer. Close to Dublin. No photos.
Said free parking but it was full. Said free internet, but only in the lobby and it did not work. Wedding at hotel with loud music until 2 am, which would have been okay but the rooms where so hot you could not have the window closed and if it was open you heard nothing but loud music. Terrible smell from the kitchen area. Older hotel on the ocean boardwalk which was nice ... but would never stay here again.

Dated hotel, with lack of amenities even at cost.

Pros: Didn't.
Cons: Decide what business you're in. If as a 'private venue', then seems like no rules, no holds barred. Good Luck. As traveler's stay, much needed.
No wireless option in room, and was 'intermittent' in the public areas as advertised. IMPOSSIBLE! No lift service direct to upper floor room... there were 'stairs' required to navigate to proper level. UNWIELDY! Final night of stay (4 nites), property had wedding event.. all night party, noise, smoking in hallways, running/banging throughout, loud arguments, shouting, impossible to get any sleep rest, and complaints to desk were unable to resolve, and continued until morning. Patio out front looked like a 'used up' bar, empty bottles, cans, cigarette butts, trash. It seemed to me management booking revenues from private parties more important than the traveler's stay revenue. AVOID THIS PROPERTY at all costs.
