The iconic Hardiman Hotel has designated an entire floor specifically for over 65s as the country reopens, and people begin to plot their staycations at home this year.
As soon as guest arrive, they can avail of the Valet Parking Service with complimentary Tea, Coffee and Homemade Scones to welcome guests in, then it’s onto the Designated Bedroom Floor which is on the second floor of the hotel so guests do not have to use the lift service and can take the stairs should they so wish.
Eating at the Hardiman for these guests is in an over 65’s only dining area, and if you fancy dining in your room there is no tray charge for room service.
Heading out, there’s a direct exit from the Hardiman into Ceannt Station, or to a waiting pick up through the hotel’s back door which opens onto the bus and train station so guests can literally walk in off the platform into the waiting lap of luxury.
