Cryan’s Hotel is set in an enviable location on the banks of the Shannon and just a couple of minutes’ walk from the town centre.
Popular with locals and tourists alike, it’s a welcoming and friendly place, whether you’re staying overnight, there for a meal or just in to have a drink - and, with views across the road to the river, there is hot competition for the outdoor seating.
Bedrooms are modern and stylish, with plasma screen televisions and free wi-fi internet connection, and rooms at the front overlook the busy river.
Breakfast is available to non-residents and great use is made of this facility by many weekend and overnight visitors to the town.
A reputation for fine fish and steaks makes for a very busy dining room with a good buzz, though there are other choices on both the set menu and the à la carte. Old favourites include prawn cocktail, scampi and chicken Maryland, but the most popular choice is either the sirloin or T-bone steak, served on a bed of sautéed onions and mushrooms, accompanied by good chips or salad.
The Carraig golf club is just a few minutes away and Cryan’s can arrange for local guides to bring visitors to the many attractions in the area, including Lough Key Forest Park and the Arigna Mines.
Seasonal special offers for midweek and weekend breaks are often available.
