Great location and a lovely old hotel. We dropped in late night and were given a nice deal for a suite. Service was professional and friendly. Comfortable. Breakfast was very nice. If in Ennis for any reason this works place will work well for you.

The Old Ground is a beautiful old hotel with excellent service but some of the standard rooms have windows that barely open making the room much too warm even with a fan. The staff explained that the windows have "restrictors" as a safety feature but they are so restricted that it's very difficult to get any fresh air at all.... More

We began our trip with a stay at the Old Ground in Ennis and it was everything the other reviewers said. The room was comfortable, clean and the staff was great. Breakfast was terrific and dinner in the Poet's Corner was as well. Our friends ate in the regular dining room the night before and also said it was a... More

We arrived a day before our tour and could not have been more pleased with the lovely hotel! The charm and comfort of the lobby, the beautiful courtyard and setting, the wonderful room, the delicious food and the very accommodating staff made the beginning of our Irish tour absolutely perfect!

The place is just so nice, history all around, friendly staff and amazing food. I really enjoyed my time there. The town is small but very cute. The rooms are well equipped, comfortable, relatively quiet.

We stayed here on the first two days of our Ireland tour and we loved it. The room was lovely and quiet, the staff excellent and the food also. What we loved the best was "The Poets Corner", their authentic Irish pub with great food, Guiness and night time music. We also enjoyed meeting a lot of locals there also.... More
