My mother recently celebrated her 93rd birthday at Minella. She and my family were treated like royalty. The food and service amazing. Special thanks to Katie for presenting my mum with a laminated card she made herself. Box of chocolates given to mum by Liz, the owner, much appreciated. Overall a wonderful experience. Thank you.
Visited Hotel Minella late July for a short break. We arrived in the rain, warmly greeted and offered coffee delivered to our room. Great location for a walking holiday, the blueway is directly across the river, also lots of other destinations nearby. We found the hotel staff to be very helpful in every way, and were happy to see that Covid regulations were being observed
We stayed here in the August bank holiday. Everything was 5 stars, very well organised and all the staff were very welcoming. Our room was very spacious and inviting- love that we had netflix and youtube. I requested a cot and a fridge- we did a room change and within minutes of check in.... they were brought to us. I really like that they have hand santisers in the room for you- that is a lovely little touch in these strange times. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Loved the grounds and the playground. The pool was another bonus. Everyone was social distancing and they were plenty of signs around the hotel. The way the hotel was run, you would never think they were restrictions.... and to be honest that is all you want when you are away. We will be returning, its my partners favorite hotel
We stayed here in August for a week - knew nothing about it beforehand but was attracted by the location and the fact they had lodges on the grounds of the hotel. We were a party of four and found the two bed lodge perfect for our needs - one bedroom was a double and the second a twin. The living room is upstairs along with a small balcony(only fits two) which we were able to use as the weather was perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed as we did eat in twice - got delivery from local takeaways. We did also eat a number of times in the hotel and again we struck it lucky as we were able to eat outdoors - on the evening we arrived they had a live band and a bar-b-q which was a welcome treat after months of lockdown. We were very well looked after by all the staff who were all very pleasant and welcoming. The food was delicious - our first taste of restaurant food since March! There is a fabulous leisure centre which was in such good condition I did ask the owner was it recently built - it wasn't! We did have to book times for swims and the gym but none of this was a problem and all covid regulations were taken very seriously both here and throughout the hotel. We did get to talk to both John and Elizabeth - the owners and thanked them for a wonderful stay - on three occasions we went back to our lodge to discover baked goodies for us - it's the little touches that make the difference alongside a staff that couldn't do enough for you. A fabulous hotel in a gorgeous setting
Thank you for a wonderful night for my 80th birthday. Our meal was fantastic and the staff could not have been more attentive. It was great to spend the evening with friends and family in such a relaxed atmosphere. Please pass on our thanks to all involved
We all hope to return soon, John
A great location, natural beauty all around. Away from husttle and bustle which I prefer. Refreshed my mind, body and soul. Food was fabulous and people just fantastic. Would certainly come back one day.
I stayed here for a friend's wedding. It's a lovely place, lovely grounds and great ambiance. The staff were polite, courteous and efficient. The room was spacious and spotless. I arrived very very late (in the middle of the night). It was not a problem.
Just Perfect Just back home from a wonderful weekend in Hotel Minella with our hillwalking club. There were so many positives about our stay including the quality of the rooms, the standard of the dinners and the facilities in the leisure centre. Best of all were the friendliness of the staff, especially Liz, the coffee and cakes when we arrived back from the mountains and the excellent breakfasts. I have rarely seen so many attentive staff at a buffet breakfast ensuring that everything was kept topped up and that there were no bottlenecks. The quality of all the food was particularly good and a very nice touch was the identification of all the local Tipperary suppliers involved. Before leaving I picked up a usefull guide produced by the Tipperary Food Producers Network and hopefully will be able to source some of their products in Dublin. Liam Glen Walk Hikers
Huge thanks on behalf of my MSD/Merck global colleagues for looking after us all so well! We had a fantastic Minella experience and for those who were visiting Ireland for the first time- it was a true Irish warm welcome – from reception to the restaurant to the bar staff. Thank you all!!
