  • Sarah, I was wondering if you have any deals for 2 adults & 2 older teenagers. We are happy to share a room to keep costs down.

    Many thanks,

    • Hi Louise, if you edit the child ages on the links or select four adults, you should be able to get the exact prices. Most the rooms that hold 5 should take 4 adults, like the Inn at Dromoland or Claregalway Hotel – both very good value.
