Strolling distance from town but far enough away to be quiet, Meadowlands is an unexpectedly romantic four-star hotel with stunning vintage-meets-designer public areas. Rooms have autumnal hues and service is spot-on. Its beamed-ceilinged bar (mains €13 to €27.50), serving top-notch seafood (the owners have their own fishing fleet), is at least as popular with locals as it is with visitors.

Food is served in the intimate 2-floor bar and informal restaurant, with seafood dishes being a speciality. Rooms are air conditioned and come with free internet access and plenty of facilities.
