This a lovely, grand hotel, in a central location. The atmosphere is buzzing and friendly, and it seems to be quite popular with the locals. The breakfast is good, but not great. The restaurant is great and the food awesome, the bar is buzzing and always full with hotel guests and locals. The problem was, my room key never worked,... More

My husband and I stayed at The Old Ground Hotel recently. Both of us arrived with a bad tummy bug (no fault of the hotel). We were confined to our room which kindly was an upgrade as the bath in our original room was not hot. The room was lovely and spacious which was a blessing as we were so... More

Lovely hotel, perfect for a few days away. Service excellent and the food was as always amazing. Only grumble were the car parking facilities and the lack of space for hotel guests......need to stop the car park been used by local shoppers.

We had a very enjoyable short break here and felt very spoiled and pampered. It is very well located for all Ennis has to offer. Feeling lucky with our parking space as parking is sometimes difficult to find here we took the train to Galway and Limerick on consecutive days and enjoyed both cities. We had a fabulous meal in...

We availed of the winter sale package for our weekend break. We had a lovely deluxe room on bed and breakfast basis. First thing I said was that reviews on TripAdvisor were not exaggerating about the parking. We arrived at 4pm on the Friday and had to wait for a space. Luckily a man was leaving. It does seem to...

This is my favourite hotel in Ennis, amazing bedrooms, huge wet room, great service from the staff. Pub is brilliant with a great choice on the menu. Just down the road another a great pub, all offering brilliant entertainment and in typical Irish style. Highly recommend staying here, worth every cent, you won't be disappointed.

My room was enormous and comfortable, the staff were more than accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, in fact, it is the location that you want when you are in Ennis. Good pub downstairs with food, but for an excellent meal, try the restaurant next door that they own as well.
