After a good night’s sleep in one of our warm and comfortable rooms, help yourself to a free breakfast to set you up for the day.
We offer free linen, free high-speed Wi-Fi, free personalized maps and itineraries and free entry to local nightclubs, as well as a low-cost laundry service.
Feel free to use our well-stocked and fully equipped kitchen. Whether it’s lunch for one or dinner for 50, we have the equipment, utensils and space you need. If you don’t feel like cooking, let us arrange for you to sample the very best of traditional Irish cooking with great value meals in local pubs and restaurants. If you’re too busy getting ready for a night on the town, let us order pizza or takeaway for you. Packed lunches can also be arranged on request.
You can also just put your feet up and chill out with a DVD or watch the match on our big screen!
