An Bho Dhearg
This is a very good hotel located close to the Motorway by the Red Cow junction. The rooms we had were spacious and very comfortable. At the time of our visit there was extensive work in progress adding 150 new rooms and a major restaurant extension. Consequently breakfast had to be served in one of the function rooms on the first day and in the cocktail bar on the second day. Food quality at breakfast was excellent. We ate at the adjacent Red Cow pub, which is also part of the same group, on two nights. Again the quality of the food was excellent, with a good choice of dishes. To get to the city centre you need to take the LUAS tram from the Red Cow stop which is on the other side of the motorway. The hotel staff were very helpful in directing us to the stop, and once you have got your bearings it is quite easy to walk.
