Reviews for `Pier Head Hotel & Spa`

Bronagh scored 4 / 5 on 04/11/2019

Enjoyed short break at Pier Head Hotel. The hotel is perfectly situated beside the lovely stone harbour and sea. Most rooms have Sea views. Staff were friendly and courteous and the leisure facilities a bonus. The surrounding area is beautiful for gentle walks. Highly recommend the hotel and its location

Had a very nice weekend break here on the 9/9. Excellent location for walking, scenery is stunning. Hotel is really good although our room was a bit run down however everything else in the hotel made up for that. The facilities, Leisure club, staff and especially the food in the bar were all way above excellent. I would recommend this hotel even just for the view when having breakfast it is spectacular. Already making plans to go back again.


Michelle scored 5 / 5 on 15/08/2016

We had the most relaxing break here in the pier head hotel. It was a very modern and clean hotel. The staff were so nice and helpful . The food was nice the bar was buzzing. They had a great selection of beauty treatments. The pool sauna and steam room were very relaxing. The view of the harbour was fab. The beach was perfect had a really nice walk around. The room was clean and spacious with a lovely sea view . Sligo town wasn't too far away for a bit of shopping . All in all a very enjoyable break away.

John scored 1 / 5 on 30/10/2014

The hotel staff where very nice and helpful. I stayed with a girlfriend. Beautiful area, wild and scenic. The hotel could be rated about two stars on my experience. They overcharged me by €40, which was deposit on the lidl breaks, I'm still waiting for a refund. I booked with 2 dinners, fatal mistake as the food was incredibly bad. On the second night I had turkey and ham it was laced with salt and dry as a bone, completely inedible, it was left uneaten as was most of the cod on the first night (again too salty). The veg was served on cold plates, although it was nicely done. Very amateur! Funny how staff are used to taking back three quarters of a dinner without a word said! However the staff where great, really friendly, just very bad management. Expect what you pay for and don't eat there, then its fine! I would not stay again.


Carmel scored 4 / 5 on 30/10/2013

Nice small hotel in a great position overlooking the harbour and bay. Rooms nice but small. Dinner was good and breakfast was excellent with great views over the sea. The bar at night was busy with a nice atmosphere. There is a nice walk along the coast from the hotel for a couple of miles. Overall a quiet relaxing hotel and we will be back early next year.


Nicky scored 3 / 5 on 13/08/2013

The hotel was well used and busy. Light coloured carpets need cleaning/replacing.Staff friendly & helpful. Fabulous location and we had a lovely room overlooking the sea with large shared balcony. Shame the balcony was destroyed with cigarette ends and smokers. I would suggest allocating a small smoking area & free up the remainder of the balcony for people who want to enjoy the view. The dining room was being used for a casino night and we had to eat in the bar. Food selection was poor with a lot of fried food/ not restaurant quality. Breakfast was fresh and tasty. I would stay there again but wouldnt have the dinner.


Kenneth scored 4 / 5 on 30/06/2013

Nice hotel, good bar food when we arrived in early afternoon. Nice dinner in the evening. Room quite warm, which would'nt be a complaint in winter but comfortable bed and nice shower. We would go back.


Stanley scored 3 / 5 on 08/05/2013

Was offered a very small room when we booked in( it really should be a single room) when I complained was then given a slightly larger room. There was no kettle or iron provided in the room and it could have done when a fresh coat of paint. Otherwise the staff were very nice and the breakfast was good


Brid scored 2 / 5 on 07/05/2013

Stayed for 1 night on a dinner ,bed and breakfast basis. Friendly staff and the dinner was amazing...........great food and very well presented. The views are spectacular from the resturant There was music in the bar on the Saturday night and there was a good buzz. Bar prices are good and staff very efficent. Unfortunately the beds in the room were very uncomfortable and needed to be replaced. Outside noise went on until 3 am and there didi not seem to be great insulation in the windows. We had a room to the front but would advise looking for one at the back away from the lift which would be a lot quieter.


Hitinak scored 3 / 5 on 04/04/2013

Beautiful setting & hotel, food was very good too. Dining room at night time was bit cold & service was little slow, maybe it was a bit short staffed. Staff that was there were very good. Would go back, when the hot tub is fixed!


Robert scored 3 / 5 on 16/01/2013

We were very pleased with the location and food. We were disappointed with the size of the room 123 as the location of the bed in relation to the entry door left little room. The Hot tub not being in working order was a great disappointment as it was out of order from early december when we booked and our stay was over the new year.


Louise scored 4 / 5 on 06/11/2012

Enjoyed our stay in the Pier Head Hotel. Beautiful location. Bedroom a bit on the small side, en suite could do with some tlc, TV - only four stations !! Bar food very good, live music on too late. Leisure centre good but changing rooms awful, too small, not enough space for more than four people to change at once. Staff friendly and courteous, will return despite these small reservations.


Maureen scored 3 / 5 on 20/08/2012

stayed at the pier head hotel last week enjoyed my stay hotel needs a bit of t.l.c but over all enjoyed my time there. i will go back again.


Paul scored 4 / 5 on 24/07/2012

We had relaxing, refreshing stay in Mullaghmore. The staff were all courteous, professional and friendly. The hotel was fresh and modern. A bit of decorating wouldn't go amiss, and some carpets could do with a freshen up, but hey, we're in a recession. All in all, very happy with reasonably priced, comfortable stay in beautiful surroundings. Would happily go again, Two satisfied Pier Head Hotel customers


Jimmy scored 3 / 5 on 08/02/2012

Room was a bit small, but got a better room with great veiw next day, food was ok, not many beef choices. would go again only if we got sea view rooms, not much places to chill out and relax with a sea veiw. Area very nice and staff as well.

Only stayed here for one night and would definately return, nice setting and dinner was first class (which was included in our deal) rooms bit on the small side but still nice and clean, friendly staff, it was a Saturday night and the band in the bar was good, it was quite busy and seemed to attract a mixture of clients, young and old!


Melanie scored 5 / 5 on 13/09/2011

Our favourite hotel. We have stayed in the Pier Head many times since we first discovered it. Amazing views! Love the facilities: pool, sauna, hot tub etc. Staff are friendly. The pub is cosy and usually has live music on Saturdays. Unfortunately, the music starts quite late, after 11 pm. Great place for a weekend away!


Annie scored 2 / 5 on 11/09/2011

We did enjoy our stay here. We needed the rest , the peace and the views were spectacular. We found staff to be really friendly and helpful. The food was very tasty and presented well. The facilities were more than sufficient. Good music in the lounge on the Saturday night. However housekeeping could improve. Where the entrance if very presentable, on going to the room, I found that the bathroom walls had stains on them. The curtains in the bedroom were also stained. Also the bed was not comfortable as it was very hard. No give in it. Otherwise it was clean but a bit tacky. The commom area of the stairwell was dirty along with dumping of equipmnet under the stairs. Carpets here needed to cleaned or better still repalced with an alternative. There was a general air of poor housekeeping in the hotel with broken window handles, torn wallpaper, cobwebs around the place, damp in some places, untidiness. This let the hotel down but if this area was worked on it would certainly improve the experience of staying there. Regards

found it to be clean and tidy with very helpful staff. Spectacular views . Well done Lidl for getting it on your list of accomadation


Sunflower scored 2 / 5 on 27/04/2011

The hotel location is fabulous, but we really felt that the hotel was seriously lacking in its attention to small details. Room was very small and the bathroom was similar to those that i have had as an en suite in a hostel. Breakfast was good once you were down early, and we found the bar food to be fine. There can be a lot of noise from the bar after it closes and there didnt appear to be anyone you could contact in relation to this, I feel the hotel should have asked people to keep the noise levels down.


Linda scored 5 / 5 on 01/03/2011

Brendan scored 5 / 5 on 28/02/2011

Accomodation satisfactory, good leisure centre, nice bar,friendly staff. Breakfast excellent,dinner a bit disappointing, vegetables- over cooked and poorly presented. Overall verdict *** .


Dee scored 3 / 5 on 24/02/2011

3rd time at this hotel, beautiful setting. This time was our most disappointing stay though. Given very small room, everytime u passed the bed u banged ur legs on the stupid base which sticks out below matteress. Bruised both sides!! Tried the bar for evening meal but extremely expensive not VFM had 2 toasties, 2 teas and 1 chip between us and that cost 16 euro. Please buy a toastie maker and decent ham not spam. Breakfast was very good. Cant understand though why u have to order beans and scrambled eggs which then come after everything else. The Breakfast room is what makes this hotel, the views are fabulous and the music choice is excellent, Our bedroom was also beside a very noisy drinks and food machine in hall which churned all night, neither slept. Room and Bathroom was clean enough except for Massive cobweb we discovered when lamp is switched on on desk! Staff were very helpful ( 3 remotes later we got one that worked). We hope to return but will ask for a room with a view of water not carpark. Dee Co. Tyrone

Hi, We stayed in Pier Head Hotel on 12th Feb and really enjoyed our stay. However we found the hotel bar to be very cold. Our room was warm though but small. It was very good price for a night away. Really enjoyed it and hopefully to return in Summer when the weather is better!! Beautiful Location.

Emilykane@live.ie scored 5 / 5 on 27/10/2010

Excellent location, great value for money the location is beautiful very easy to find yet hidden away as soon as you see the sign for Mullaghmore a whole new world opens up. I found the rooms very clean and neat a bit on the small side but not too sure if that was just our room. Great place for kids also of all ages. There is a pub next door to the hotel which is also owned by the hotel which caters for all ages and the food there is excellent. All in all my family and myself really had a good time.


Imelda scored 3 / 5 on 06/10/2010

Hotel was very good. Feel they have the monopoly on food, as it is the only place to eat in Mullaghmore Having said that, portions were generous& tasty. The staff were excellent, cheerful & helpful. Rooms are a bit on the small side & I would have liked somewhwere in the bathroom to put my toileteries other than the floor. I would definitely go back & found the whole stay a great value.

Adrian scored 3 / 5 on 27/09/2010

rooms on the small side but could not find a fault , very clean plenty of storeage as with the en suite. bar food 2-3 euros more than what one would pay elsewhere but excellent in quality and quanity. never being to a hotel where drink prices are so low e.g. guinness 3.70 ale 3.60 and larger 4.00 and if kids are with you only 2.00 per soft drink , shorths are from 3.70 to 4.00 euros , big glass wine 4.85 breakfast like the bar food excellent and a wide varity . leisure center is a bonus and free of charge to residents , overall we will return to pier head

Arrived at the hotel at 2.00pm,Got key for room ,went to room and it had not been cleaned from previous occupants.Went to reception to be told I would have to wait half an hour to get it made up.Stayed Sat & Sun night.Sunday our room wasn't made up until 3.45 pm.Entertainment in bar was brillent with the people getting ready for the Donkey Derby on Sunday.Bar staff very nice.Windows in the hotel need a good clean,The view from the resturant especially.Fantastic views but disappointing windows.Food menu limited in Resturant,better menu in bar.A few candles on the table in the evenings in the resturant wouldn't go a miss.A lot of staff not being managed on the Sunday,it was bussy but young staff talking to each other oblivious to outside tables not being cleared leaving empty glasses not been attended too. Dressing rooms in pool not big enough to cater for more than three people at a time.Sauna was broken and steam room was basic. Beautiful part of Ireland to visit.Hotel is good but needs to fine tune basic needs of the clients.Just general cop on is needed.

The hotel is set in a beautiful location and the views from our room was spectacular. Food also was very good in the bar and at breakfast. If I had to complain about anything it would be the same as previous review the noise from other bedroom doors they banged very loudly otherwise we loved our stay and hopefully will return again soon.

Brian scored 4 / 5 on 14/08/2010

Had a wonderful visit. Especially enjoyed the breakfast. If I had to find fault somewhere it would be the slamming doors in the hallway and adjacent room(s) late at night. If the springs could be adjusted to close them more gently it would be appreciated :)


Mallie scored 3 / 5 on 05/08/2010

Nice location and a nice room. A little basic though, no tea/coffee facilities in the room and no extra pillows. Unfortunately our room was just above the bar and was very noisy as there was music for the bank holiday weekend. Breakfast was ok, a little dried out. We left our car on the street outside the hotel and it was damaged during the night. The receptionist was very helpful to us in this matter. It was good value for money, but can be noisy at the weekends and be careful where you park your car.


Deckie scored 4 / 5 on 29/06/2010

Lovely hotel, the food was really nice and the staff were really helpful. The view from the rear of this hotel was something else. I would highly recommend this hotel to families and couples


Gerald scored 3 / 5 on 29/06/2010

The accommadition was comfortable, the location excellent and the leisure centre was very relaxing. The breakfast menu was restricted to a grill every morning. The resident dinner menu left a lot to be desired. There were very few choices of food, for a 2 course meal. I would suggest that a 2/3 nights BB plus 1 dinner pps would be more popular. Guest would have more choice from other menus. Being near the sea, fish dishes were few , which was disappointing.
