Filled discriminated
Hi, the hotel is very good but the experience we have with the staff was very disappointed. From the beginning when we do the check-in nobody informed us that they have presume we are flying over different country, so we filled discriminate. Me with my family, we are living in Ireland for 12 years and never had this problems. I have compiled to the Manager therebut still nothing changed, they had the same attitude through us. Me and my family are very disappointed about this and i think if nobody will contact me to ghive me the proper explanation why we was treated differently, they will here from my solicitor.

Worth the Price!
This hotel was very clean. Buffet breakfast was very good even though it was an Irish area, the breakfast food was similar to the USA. Eggs, sausages, croissants, OJ, Apple Juice. This was nice for me. Also there was a taxi button at the front desk that made it super easy and fast to order a taxi. Wait time for the taxi was approx 1 minute.!!! How awesome. Loved it.

grand tour of hotel, with aircon noise to boot.
got a call at 11.30am, am I coming to the hotel, by the staff, we booked two rooms weeks ago.i said yes of course. got another call at appx 5/30 again, are we coming to the hotel!!. ehhh, yes, again.arrived at hotel, 7.30. got the room, appx 100 meters away from our friend. the key didn't work for the room, had to walk back to reception to get new key. arrived in the room. the view out window looked like a prison camp, very bad. then! the loud constant hum noise of a aircon system, ehh, guess what. back down to the 3 flight to the reception. need to change room or can you turn off the noise. got a neutral, non reply on this, answer was, it goes off at night and on again in morning, so what times, no reply, so we demand new room.. went back to fond were at last next door to our friend in his room, and guess what!!??? his room has crap view, and more noise!! same hum aircon!! and worse, the walls are thin as wall paper with a kid screaming next door!!. now all 3 of us from two rooms go where!!! 3 flights back down to reception, this time we all demand a better room or we leave. after 10 mins we get a better room, quieter room. not perfect experience at all here. we spent 60 mins doing all this, and lost time to go to an early bird dinner in an asian restaurant . would not stay agin here. and at €126 it's way over priced.
