Couldn't fault this place. Just back from a hens there. Rooms spotless, food great, and cocktail glass with Donal was great laugh!! Couldn't fault the customer service in the place in particular Olive who went above and beyond while we were there, an asset to the team. Would definitely return and recommend 🙂 hopefully we'll see you soon.
Just back from my hen party, stayed for 2 nights very welcoming, fab food and hosts. Would definitely stay here again, plus it's very central everything within walking distance. Had an amazing weekend great place
I couldn't recommend Rafter 's enough! The location, the cocktails, accommodation, breakfast - but mostly the staff. They were so helpful, accommodating, thoughtful and welcoming before and during our visit.
Just back from a fantastic hen weekend! I have to say everyone in Rafter Dempseys were amazing! Looked after us all so well, very friendly & welcoming. Nothing was too much bother for them. Rooms are lovely with everything you need! Will definitely be back & would highly recommend!! Thanks again xxx
Just back from a two night stay. What can I say we enjoyed ourselfs down to the ground. Celebrating my sister's hen party , the staff were great there was nothing they wouldn't do for us. The food was fantastic both breakfast and dinner was included, great selection on both days. Big thanks to Michael who kept us entertained with the cocktail class on Saturday evening...still feeling the effects from it. Not forgetting the night porter who must be the most patient man in ireland. Thanks again to Josephine for organising everything. Great place to stay for hen and stag parties.
