Loved the crack with the bar men...friendly. My mother really loved it too. Clean, well designed. Lovely homely sitting room with baby grand...when I was checking the rivals, we choose this because when we first popped our heads in the door, the feeling was palatable....it felt good, just from a glance! Good smells...not heavy with chemicals poison 'cleaners' Eco friendly. The biggest surprise was the morning we were leaving to catch a boat to the island....behind Caseys is a river with a beautiful natural garden, pristine clean, native trees and plants flourishing with the least amount of interruption. My mother every so often reminds me how she enjoyed the hotel and the trip to Glengarriff...as in hint hint....her birthday is coming up and that's why I'm writing this review. Credit when its due!
