Tina says…
”Hamlet Court was one of the nicest surprises I discovered in Ireland. From what at first looked like a very traditional Irish  pub, I was amazed at the quality of the whole hotel along with unrivalled family hospitality, excellent home cooking and personal touches – this is an excellent value hotel for the quality and character it offers.”
