Fodor's Review

This small hotel may look like a traditional two-story stone building, with pointed gables and bay windows, but in fact it is an Irish-style boutique hotel—a product of the economic boom years. Located about a mile outside the village on the road to Sneem, the welcome here is lively, thanks to the bright abstract art on the walls and bold, striking color schemes that are an interesting contrast to the Victorian-style furniture and heavy brocade drapes. Superking-size beds are heaped with soft pillows, and bathrooms have under-floor heating. A rustic bistro and bar are complemented at busy times by a more formal restaurant.
