I really enjoyed the afternoon tea. I had the vegetarian option and everything was just delicious. I will definitely return again to experience what else the hotel has to offer.

I feel been charged 10 euro for a glass of Prosecco a bit of a joke considering it was 7.50 for a glass on the cocktail menu. The food was nice but not plentiful, i would not recommend it. Also the whiskey is from Midleton...not Middleton!

Dear Michelle My Name is Pierce Lowney. I am the General manager here at the River Club. Firstly thank you for taking the time for sending you feedback to us. I am surprised to see you were over charged for prosecco. I would be happy to refund the difference that you were overcharged and i am still investigating how this happened. We are currently in the process of changing our menus also and we will certainly be correcting our spelling mistakes! I am glad to see you enjoyed your food and I look forward to welcoming you back. Kind Regards Pierce Lowney

Everything was perfect, as afternoon tea should be. Above accomodating and superb staff and service. There was nothing about our experience that I could fault. Excellent atmosphere and environment, will hopefully be back there soon.

The atmosphere was really nice and comfortable but the food was very disappointing and expensive. I have no problem paying for good food. The selection in the menu was small but the most the disappointing was the food itself. Mairead

We had a lovely experience for afternoon tea. The staff were exceptional and went above and beyond for us. The food tasted delicious. Our only complaint was the general environment, as the cocktail bar is in the lobby of the hotel.

I can't thank the hotel enough for the outstanding service we received after hosting a baby shower for my sister with 25 people last weekend. The staff were super responsive from making the original booking down to the quality of food, drink and service we received on the day. I would certainly repeat the experience and will be recommending to friends & family for any future events.
