Overnight stays in Carlow and the Dublin area are in 3-star hotels.
The 3-star Celtic Ross is a family owned hotel, picturesquely set right on the West Cork coastline on the Wild Atlantic Way, with the historic Cathedral Town of Rosscarbery on its doorstep. A superb location, unspoilt beaches, locally sourced food and excellent service, all combine to create a memorable stay. The hotel has 66 rooms, some of which have sea views or lagoon views boasting amazing sun sets over the Bay. The Kingfisher Bar Bistro, is the ideal place to relax. Alternatively enjoy a dip in the indoor swimming pool with sauna and steam room.
We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not
generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests
at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
