Lovely hotel situated with a lot of Old World Charm. Room was comfortable and the sitting area downstairs was beautifully done. Very nice dining area and since our final day we only had breakfast there. Very friendly and efficient staff and wonderful service. We ended the night in the hotel bar where we enjoyed some traditional Irish music. Lovely place... More

We had a pleasant enough stay in a large room on fifth floor. Even with a high temp only in upper 60s F, the room was warm. We could not sleep under the covers and there was no circulation even with windows open. The hotel is nice otherwise, but there were morning construction-like noises and traffic. Hallways are noisy and... More

What a find! The Old Ground Hotel is an elegant Grande Dame with old world charm and sophistication overlaid with superb service. In addition to its own fabulous pub and restaurant, the central location lends itself to easy exploration of local fare and shops, even a small mall under roof just around the corner. Our room was comfortably cozy (... More

This hotel has managed to keep the same very high standards that we experienced when we visited some time ago. The week we visited was particularly busy but despite all the customer pressure, the staff were very professional and could not have been more welcoming and friendly.

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

What a lovely hotel in a lovely city. I've been to Ireland three times now and this is my first trip to Ennis. It is a great place to start your Irish travels as it is not too far from Shannon airport. The Old Ground Hotel is comfortable and fun. Lot's going on in their pub with great food, libations... More

We arrived at the Old Ground to stay two nights and found ourselves in an enormous suite on the top floor. What a delight! Most importantly were the reception staff members and the bartenders in the attached pub. All of these staff member we so extremely helpful .... even when we had colds and needed a pharmacy!

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
