Great Location

'Very clean and comfortable rooms. Front desk personnel very helpful. Had a great breakfast at the buffet in the restaurant. The hotel was great location for visiting both Cork and Kinsale. Very easy to get in and out of at the airport. Would stay here again if we come to Ireland again.'
