This popular hotel and spa won Trip Advisor’s top Ireland hotel award in 2018, and it’s easy to see why. Conveniently located in the center of town, the lemon-yellow, five-story building has appealing arched attic windows. Rooms are not huge, but they’re comfortable and were recently redone. Premium rooms are larger and have king beds and separate seating areas. The attention to detail is what most regulars rave about—staff are friendly, service attentive and cheerful. Afternoon tea is popular with visitors and locals alike. The Park Restaurant offers upscale, French-influenced Irish cuisine in an elegant atmosphere. On cool nights, open fires bring warmth to the dining room. The Elemis spa is an oasis with an indoor pool and outdoor hot tubs overlooking the hills outside the town. Indulge in a treatment if you can.
