Fodor's Review

Outdoors types, especially golfers, prick up their ears when they hear of the facilities on offer at this modern country hotel set on 300 acres. Apart from two golf courses, it also has an excellent health club as well as freshwater and trout fishing. From the outside, this hotel looks like a rather wan 20th-century redo of a stately home. No matter. One comes here for modern-day luxuries and de-stressing activities, not the grace notes of yesteryear. The bright and sprightly bedrooms have chunky, Art Deco–style furniture. White linen and wrought-iron chandeliers decorate the formal Conall Cearnach restaurant, where the extensive menu includes traditionally prepared seafood dishes such as Atlantic hake or fillets of Adriatic sea bass. The Setanta restaurant is more informal while the Summit Restaurant overlooking the golf course serves tasty snacks. The hotel is a convenient and luxurious place to break up a journey between Dublin and Sligo.
