The Pilgrims Rest Hotel Reviews

A great place to stay. So clean and comfortable. We had a lovely time

touring around and found the location ideal with good home cooked food.


Over the past three years we have enjoyed this hotel. Just to mention a few things, the owners are two of the most wonderful people that you will ever meet. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. It is one of the best places to dine as they have a variety to select from and not to mention their homemade deserts. The area is wonderful, so picturesque and tranquil, yet everything was just a short distance away from local attractions. The rooms are so cozy and inviting. The evenings are great just to sit down by the fireplace and meet new friends and enjoy a nice glass of wine. The entertainment was really nice too. You got a feel for the locals and music. Everyone was talking, signing, and dancing. What a treat staying at this hotel! We spent Christmas there and had one of the best Christmas dinners ever with about thirty other people from various parts of Ireland and England. We had one of the most surprising occurrences. It snowed Christmas Day. What a special day for us.

Very comfortable stay, with plenty to do. The location is perfect for touring. I was able to visit lots of interesting attractions, and the hotel was very clean. Good food. Excellent value for the money and the staff was very warm and really friendly. Well done. I will be back.


I have just had a wonderful stay at this hotel; it is the most welcoming and friendly place to stay. It is also very peaceful and tranquil and the rooms are clean and cozy. If you want to get away from it all this is a place to visit. The food is also good and there is a bar where you can sit by the fire and have a relaxing drink. There are plenty of lovely walks; just a great place to unwind.

Excellent accommodation, and it has really good home-cooked food. The hotel is kept very clean and has a great log fire. We found lots of things to do in this very special part of Ireland. It is most beautiful and the hotel grounds and views will be sadly missed. We will be back.

I've been in your establishment in the recent past. It was not a very good experience. They are trying hard but I think they are in the wrong location.


The Pilgrims Rest Hotel Reviews from the Web

We arrived at approx 22.15 after our motorcycle had broken down. Our phones had died and we had got lost trying find the hotel/hostel. We tried the door for 2 hours with nobody answering despite the fact that the place had lights on and cars outside. We where cold , wet and tired. We decided drive back towards a town to call the place. The man answered the telephone , he was abusive and its absolutely indescribable how he treated us. He set the phone down and said he wasnt letting us in.
