Recent guest reviews

Stayed in Lawlor's for a night just before Christmas. I must say, after a long journey we just wanted to get checked in and down to the bar for a quick bite to eat and a few quiet drinks. Lawlors was perfect for this. The receptionist, actually, all the staff could not have been more helpful. Room was very nice and toasty warm which was great. Food in the bar was great and the pints of Guinness stunning. First time here and definitely one to return to again. Roll on the summer!!

Nice and central hotel.very cold bar n lounge area.came on a coach trip for new year break.big mistake no entertainment on first night.i was there for 5 days n never heard any Irish disappointed..very poor breakfast.cold plates some crockery with chips..nice room but bad situated plug...underneath the tea shelf..which I would have to bump my head on..

Was on glenton select new year break hotel was good in parts very disappointed with the non existent entertainment on Fri night saturday a soul singer appeared in the freezing bar area about 2130 most of the two coach parties had left New year's eve good new years day nothing all day till again 2130 a guy with a sort of disco machine breakfast was one slice of bacon one very small egg and two very slim link sausages nothing else on the plate not even hot and flung on table while we were still having cereal this was repeated each morning the spare blankets in the room could have done with a wash to be fair to glenton our coach driver Paul was excellent in all respects nothing any trouble as was the coach he kept it immaculate

Black mould? Where? Windows and in the bathroom! Why? Who knows. NAMA? NO investment upstairs for years I suspect.. Great location nice staff. Poor standard of cleaning difficult if the tiles etc are so old. Watch out for the red bed side lamps. Shades are scorched and it's like a boudoir they emit so little light. Have fun. You have been warned. Mentioned the above to the receptionist on checking out. Said they would look into it. The manager behind did not bat an eyelid.

Stayed with my girlfriend on 29th December as we were attending a event in the function room. The bed room was reasonable size but very dated, didn't mind that too much as the price was reflective of this. Just after we arrived we got dinner in the bar, service was a bit slow but the food was really nice - bit expensive €16 for a burger but good portion size. At the event the bar pretty much ran out of everything, from pint bottles to glasses. Got served a gin and tonic in a pint glass at one point! There was a great view from the bedroom which could be seen all night and morning as the curtains didn't fully close. Room temperature fine, and although the shower looked questionable it worked perfectly well. Breakfast, were to start.......Do not get the full Irish. It arrived 2 minutes after we ordered it and looked and tasted like it had been made the previous week. Tried to get staff's attention to see if I could get a fresh one. I was ignored so left. Hotel bedrooms need a good bit of work and a overhaul of the breakfast menu. My advice stay in the Park Hotel.

Absolutely disgraceful how myself and my girlfriend were treated at this hotel. We were greeted by a grumpy receptionist upon arrival, after which we went to our room which was freezing cold. We turned on the heating and it was left on for hours but when we came back to our room after our night out, our room was still absolutely freezing, so cold to the point that we could not stay in the room. We went down and spoke to the night porter who was very helpful, he could not believe how cold our room was and was shocked by how cold my hands were. We were then offered a replacement room, baring in mind this is the early hours of the morning we accepted. When we got to our new room, myself and my girlfriend had to have showers to warm ourselves up. After all of this moving around and trying to heat up, we did not get to sleep till the early hours of the morning. The next morning I went down to the receptionist who was very helpful and she called the manager for me. Upon seeing me, the manager looked at the receptionist and pointed toward me and said “the young fella?” Which I found completely belittling. When I spoke to the manager, who was the most rude person I have ever spoken to in my life, he did not seem to care one little bit about our ordeal. He said “sure were you out last night?” Which I told him had absolutely nothing to do with it. The way the manager spoke to me and acted towards me was absolutely disgusting. I would strongly, strongly recommend everyone to stay a million miles away from this establishment, it is the worst experience I have ever had in a hotel in my entire life, from the room to how the manager treated us, spoke to us and acted towards us and everything in between.

A dated hotel... Could do with a big cash injection in the rooms. The kitchen closed earlier than their website said. After taking an order we got this information. The xmas party wasn't great as the band were flying through songs at high speed. Food was cold and like a kids party. But close to the start of the Greenway which was handy. If you just needed a bed.

This hotel has been in need of an injection of 15k per room and a new heating system for years. We've stayed a good few times over the years but it continues to deteriorate. The rooms are very cold, the showers are cold, the tv is smaller than my iPad, the the fittings etc are broken or dated. The breakfast is poor. On the plus side many of the staff are pleasant, the bar is quite nice, the dining area is nice.

I have been a regular annual visitor to this hotel in the pretty town of dungarvan. A budget hotel in a perfect town centre location. Always ask for the hotel front rooms which overlook the harbour. Other rooms can be a bit gloomy. Nice bustling bar and a good breakfast always. Car park is not now supervised it was last year so don't leave anything of value in it. Rooms are clean and warm if a bit basic . As I say a good overnighter. Will be back again next year!!

Ever so slightly dated bedrooms & decour, but this is more than made up for by the cosy bar and reception areas. The staff were beyond friendly and helpful- nothing was too much bother. The breakfasts and main menus were both fantastic. I definitely recommend a stay here.
