On Tuesday 4th July, my husband and I popped into the bar of the Old Ground Hotel in Ennis, for a drink and to listen to the couple of lads who were playing banjos. I joined a table with a lovely older couple, who were guests at the hotel and had been sitting at the table for over an hour.... More

Had scampi & chips and it was delicious & best I've eaten...had it on my last visit when it was equally good so saw... More

It's been a few years since I had a stay over here and I'm glad to say that it has improved on great, from the room quality to the service and the food. I ate in the bar and had a fillet steak, cooked exactly as requested every ounce eaten with enjoyment, there is a relaxing lounge area set aside... More

Just checked in and found no one had really paid attention to our reservation. We are traveling w children and requested adjacent rooms and one w twins, the other a double or larger. Our rooms were close but not adjacent and they were all set up as multiple twins. They offered to push the beds together and no other solution... More

This hotel is located in downtown Ennis and everything is within easy walking distance. We were traveling with a large group and expected a delay at check-in, however the check-in process was very well organized and nobody had to wait more than 3 or 4 minutes to check in. The rooms were large, clean and quiet. The beds were comfortable.... More

Very happy with everything about the hotel. Room was very large and comfortable, staff were friendly and attentive. Breakfast is fabulous with a choice of buffet items and cooked to order hot items (full breakfast, eggs Benedict, etc). We enjoyed the trad music session in the attached bar (Poet's Corner). We'll definitely be back next time we're visiting the Clare... More

Traditional town hotel with a certain charm - well received at reception on arrival and all staff friendly and helpful. Room was a good size but required refurbishment to bring up to standard for the price charged. Staff worked hard and provided a good service at breakfast.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The room had a king size bed and a sunken tub/shower. The breakfast options were very nice and had other things besides the Traditional Irish Breakfast. The continental part had fresh fruit and nuts. The crescents were very tasty. An added bonus was convenient on-site... More

This is a very comfortable hotel and very clean. The staff are very good and helpful. Food is fabulous. My only problem here is parking, which is an issue. When there is an event it does need some one to be working on the grounds helping out with the parking. As a guest it was quite stressful locating a space.
