We had a group meal here - as we have done on many occasions over the years. The food is great homemade food. Portions are extremely generous so if you’re a small eater don’t have a starter! The friendly welcoming service from the staff/family who run this hotel is second to

We don't live too far from the hotel but decided to stay here on route to Dublin for quick getaway. It's an old style hotel and that is what makes it great, its so obviously run from the point of viewing of providing hospitality to the guest and taking care of the as opposed to

We came here for a large family meal. The staff were very attentive and welcoming. It’s a nicely decorated hotel with free parking. The food though was amazing and there was plenty for all. Wouldn’t hesitate to return here.

Stayed for one night recently as my wife and I were attending a function nearby. I can't fault the hotel. The staff were friendly, the room was generously sized and great value, and the food and service in the restaurant was delightful. The hotel has charm and character and

Dear Sir I note with concern your review and indeed similar posts on various other social media in relation to your recent visit to the Bush Hotel following your discovery of a ‘covert’ dome camera in the gents’ toilets and the sinister implications arising. Whist I have previously responded to you privately I wish, for the public record, to clarify the facts as indeed I could and would have (and indeed demonstrated to you) had you expressed concerns to a staff member on the day of your visit. In the gents toilets I confirm there indeed is a relatively large dome camera clearly mounted and visible on the ceiling in the wash hand basin and hand drying (but not urinal) area as would be confirmed in the photographs you took. Furthermore, this camera is also in fact a dummy unit the purpose of which is to deter mild antisocial behaviour (smoking, loitering etc) and there is absolutely no compromise in patron privacy. Should you continue to be unhappy I again suggest you contact the Office of Data Protection or any other statutory body with whom we would confidently co-operate or indeed the Joe Duffy Show mentioned in your ultimatum of a previous post. Whatever your motivation I again respectfully request you remove your unhelpful and potentially damaging posts to our business. In the meantime I do not propose to engage further on this issue being more inclined to look after my genuine, valued and appreciative patrons. Sincerely Joseph Dolan Managing Director

Also, sorry. I didn't book a room with a Jacuzzi so I'm afraid I can't help you. You might want to contact the hotel staff, they might be able to answer your question.

"modern room at rear"
"I guess the newer rooms are better"
"The Front rooms lead out on to the Main Street which at weekends were like a battle Zone with Hens & Stag Parties"
"All rooms excellent"
"The rooms to the rear offer a pleasant outlook over the hotel gardens"
