We spent 2 nights here during our whirlwind tour of Ireland. Liked the central location, nice room and great dining. Parking lot was a bit of hassle (and we were there in the off season!) and a bit hard to find for newbies (we got lost a LOT!! Thank goodness for our GPS). Yes, we would certainly go back.

I haven't been to The Old Ground since I was a teenager and had great memories of the hotel so I was happy to be attending a wedding there this weekend. It never disappoints. The hotel itself is lovely, the staff were very helpful and polite and the food was amazing! I would give it 10/10 for the meal we... More

We attended a wedding here this weekend and thought the hotel was beautiful in an excellent location. The meal was one of the nicest wedding meals we have ever experienced. Being 'dairy free' I often encounter problems with less than imaginary alternative menus even with good notice. This hotel caters exceptionally well for dietary requirements, with well thought out, interesting... More

This is a lovely old world hotel in the middle of downtown Ennis; shops within walking distance. Food was excellent, pub on site, clean, large rooms, lovely courtyard in front. It is a classy restaurant with white linens, lovely menu. Staff is attentive. The coffee was barrister prepared! Banquet/meeting rooms. Lovely paintings with historical relevance. I highly recommend!

great hotel from the rooms to the service and location. This hotel was our second stop on a 8 day trip through western Ireland and could not have been more perfect. A traditional Irish pub is attached to hotel and they have great music nightly. Enos is a very charming town and fun to explore on foot.

We recently started our tour of Ireland in Ennis. We arrived from the US at 6 a.m. They were able to put us in a room immediately! We were so grateful after an overnight flight. The room they gave us was fantastic! It was on the top floor and we had skylights. King size bed and the bathroom was large... More

Just spent the weekend in this beautiful grand old hotel for the Irish Barbershop convention. It's so central yet so quiet. We had a fabulous suite on the fifth floor with two king sized beds! We had dinner on Friday night in the restaurant at the front of the hotel and it was divine. But breakfast was amazing. I don't... More

We only stayed one night fortunately as my wife found a ring she desperately wanted in one of the tempting shops in Ennis and if we stayed two she may have swayed me to go into further debt!The hotel has that old world charm that we love and one of the main reasons we love Ireland and travel...why stay in...

We are currently staying here. We came in on a red eye flight from the U.S. and ended up arriving at the hotel around 7:00 A.M. We expected to store our bags at the hotel and be exhausted by the time check-in time finally came around at 3:00 PM. That wasn't the case at all. They mentioned that while they... More
