The bed was really comfy and I couldn’t fault the facilities at the property. It had everything you could think off for couples and families alike. Excellent location right in the heart of the town so ideal for travelling around the wild Atlantic way and all the sights. the beaches were lovely, blue water and golden soft sand.
