From the moment we set foot in this hotel last August, we knew this would be the perfect hotel for our wedding reception and it certainly was all this and MORE! The staff were extremely helpful and obliging in dealing with us in the months leading up to our wedding day, December 22nd, 2014. Throughout our stay at the hotel,... More

We stayed at the Old Ground hotel for one week in Ireland. The staff was very nice, helpful with directions or anything we needed. The food at breakfast was good except for the "pudding", which was something I just wasn't use to and not what pudding is in the states. The bar area of the hotel was always crowded with... More

The lobby/sitting area was wonderful with a roaring fire and cozy couches.The room was spacious with a renovated bathroom, however, the bed and living space... More

Had a beautiful meal in The Old Ground Hotel, Ennis yesterday with a group of friends and it was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend it for its bar food and also for a special occasion. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Its also very good value.

a great setting lovely staff .Room slightly let down by the bathroom but more than made up for by everything else. Handy for all the attractions of Co Clare, about which the staff were well clued up. The food in the Town Hall restaurant was sublime, though we had to eat in our room one night due to a waitress... More

My partner & I often call in to the Old Ground to eat after a Sunday out. We did this yesterday {4th}& I was shocked at the plate of food offered to my partner. It was the mixed grill & it was simply overcooked, it had obviously been cooked for hours & kept warm under lights, not good. My partner... More

Dear Guest, Our team were hugely disappointed to read your comments. We take great pride in providing freshly cooked meals and there is certainly no policy to pre cook a mixed grill. We are sorry that this menu item was overcooked and resolve to ensure this will never happen again. I am also sorry that we did not pick up... More

We enjoyed a lovely evening meal in the dining room of the old ground recently -dec 12th- and found the food, the service, the authentic dining room feel all great. What a warm welcome and no rush, no hustle- just charming, welcoming and such good food. It's a long time since I enjoyed such a comfortable evening with great food... More
