Update on a recent stay:
We had 2 cash & points room for one night in April. Hotel is very nice and rooms (especially enormous bathrooms and showers) are very modern and well-appointed. It is a little odd, though, to stay at a property that looks like it should be in Phoenix but is instead in southern Ireland.

Staff was very nice, but reception staff kept pushing us to eat at the hotel restaurant (and actually ignored questions about other restaurants off-property). After getting the run-around from the reception staff, we went to the the bell staff, who gave great recommendations and good directions for other places. (We read lots of reviews online saying that the restaurant was over-priced and very, very slow.) Breakfast in the restaurant was good (though not cheap).

One random note -- at check-out they give out free postcards and offer to mail them anywhere in the world for free. Great perk -- if only they offered it before the car is loaded and everyone is ready to leave!

Plenty to do in the area -- wish we had more time there!
