We stayed here at The Old Ground as our home while we visited the local attractions which of course included the Cliffs of Moher. Immediately upon our arrival we were greeted by a staff member and had our bags removed from our car and were provided a warm place to relax aside the lobby fire (the day we checked in... More

Ennis is a lovely town and this is a good place to stay, very central, busy with great food. Our room wasn't very well organised in the beginning but household rectified it quickly. Breakfast & dinner were great & staff very friendly. Car park is a bit of a nightmare - didn't see anyone checking & some cars were parked... More

Wonderful Friday night stay for six of us for a get together. From the helpful reservation staff, right through to all the staff we encountered we certainly were not disappointed. The hotel was very busy on the night but this did not detract in any way from our stay. Check in was efficient and the staff at the front desk... More

Three tired ladies booked in for our annual apres Christmas break and we're delighted with our venue. We received a warm welcome from reception and immediately felt at home. We each had our own room which were fab, nicely furnished comfortable and spacious. Lounge area was so relaxing with lovely fires we totally relaxed and unwound here. Dining room staff... More

Thank you so much - we specialise in these after Christmas Breaks by providing wonderful food, and a warm, safe refuge from the tiresome weather. Yet, you are only a few steps away from the wonderful boutiques of Ennis where exquisite fashions are widely available. I assume you mean that Pascal is a lovable "rogue" and I will be delighted...

The hotel and staff are great. It is in an ideal location for local shops, Pubs etc. The adjoining bar is always full which is testament to the beer and food as well as the ever helpful staff. The night porters are always helpful and will serve you until the sun comes up if needed. The only problem I encountered... More

My family has been staying at the Old Ground since the Sixties. The place is legendary! Parking is always a bit problematic and Ennis traffic has increased quite a lot but it is well worth the navigating to reach this treasure. I found the front desk service better than on my last two visits. Both The Poets' Corner and the... More

We spent 4 nights in a de luxe room this month, eating in the pub and restaurant. Lovely staff, good food and excellent value, and it was easy to spend a relaxing rainy day in situ with an occasional wander round the interesting town and Clare Museum between showers. Like most hotels the duvet is far too heavy, even with... More

Our short stay was truly memorable. On arrival, we were up graded to a Junior Suite and a de-luxe room by David at reception, who had to change our room requirements due to an extra guest and need for access to the elevator for my mother. Both spacious rooms had the ultimate wow factor. Beds, furnishings, ensuites, colour schemes, and... More
