Set high above the town, this big old hotel is not perhaps quite as grand as it once was, but it has enviable views of Tramore Bay and will be enjoyed by guests who like quirky older properties and appreciate traditional hospitality.
Friendliness and old-fashioned comfort are the order of the day here and it’s popular with families, as it’s just a few minutes walk from all the amenities that this holiday town has to offer and has good facilities for children.
Bedrooms are good sized and a number of family suites are available, with a double and up to three single beds, and complimentary baby-listening service. There is also a kids’ club during the summer months, open to residents and non-residents.
While dated, rooms are clean and comfortable, and it's worth paying the supplement charged for sea view rooms.
Discounts on many of Tramore’s water attractions are available to residents, who also get favourable rates for other local activities including golf and horseriding.
Breakfast is served in a pleasant dining room, where window tables are much in demand. Food is generally above the standard expected of mid-range hotels and children are well catered for in Duffy’s Bar (food served 12.30 – 10pm), with bangers and mash and Southern fried chicken just two of the choices available.
