Brilliant stay, very impressed with staff, cleanliness and food. Great location, just a short distance from town, very quiet and super comfortable beds.

The staff were very friendly and chatty. However the food was absolutely devine, smallish menu but cooked to perfection. We have done a lot of travelling around Ireland this year and this was by a long shot the best food we ate. (Would recommend the wings).

Aoife scored 4 / 5 on 07/07/2021

My family enjoyed a lovely stay at the Downhill Inn. Staff were friendly and very efficient. Room and breakfast were excellent, and with great service. Only downside was the heat in the room, that came on at night. There was no need for heat in July and there was no way to adjust it. Even when we asked for it to be turned off it remained switched on.

Mervyn scored 3 / 5 on 07/07/2021

Good food friendly staff rooms a bit tired plumbing bad

Edward scored 5 / 5 on 05/07/2021

The friendliness and professionalism of the staff was excellent. The food for the evening meal and breakfast was outstanding. We ordered the mackerel salad for starter. It was so good, and said everything about the quality and effort that is being put in behind the scenes to deliver for guests. Mackerel would not be my first (or even second) choice however, this was an outstanding example of local ingredients served well. The rooms are basic and clean. We are more than happy to recommend the Downhill Inn as a great place to stay on The Wild Atlantic Way.

Siobhan scored 3 / 5 on 05/07/2021

Sadie scored 5 / 5 on 05/07/2021

As the weather was so nice and I had 2 days off work, it was wonderful to get a nice hotel. The staff were lovely and friendly. The hotel is situated just less than 10 minutes from Enniscrone if you want the beach. The food was wonderful. It’s a nice hotel with a pleasant atmosphere.

Annie scored 4 / 5 on 29/06/2021

My husband , son and myself stayed on Saturday the 26th of June. The room was clean as was the bathroom, the only thing I would like is a shower separate from the bath because I have arthritis in my knees and hips and find it hard to get in and out of the bath to use the shower. We had breakfast on Sunday morning and it was delicious with plenty of choice. Any member of staff we delt with were very pleasant and helpful.

Paul scored 3 / 5 on 29/06/2021

Dublin scored 2 / 5 on 05/04/2011

The hotel was close to town which suited us. Its cheap and cheerful if your just looking for somewhere to rest your head. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The only downfall were the beds were very old amd matresses badly needed to be updated as they were very worn and flat. Brekkie was good but small but for the rate you pay this place is great for a stop off for cheap weekend!

Kay scored 4 / 5 on 29/03/2011

Had a very plesant overnight stay at this hotel. Room very comfortable, good breakfast, and friendly helpful staff.
