Beautiful spot in a great location. The staff was fantastic!! We dined at The Poet's Corner and the food was fabulous! Highly recommended place to stay and eat!! We would come back. A bit sad our stay was so short.

I had a very comfortable and pleasant stay during a recent business trip. The Old Ground is a very clean and relaxed hotel in a good location and the food was top notch! I would definitely recommend staying here if visiting Co. Clare. The staff were very helpful and friendly too which made this trip all in all a good... More

My husband and I stayed in the hotel recently and it was wonderful. We were greeted by enthusiasm, our room was lovely, the bar had a great atmosphere and the food was amazing. However, one evening we had dinner in the restaurant, the Brendan O'Regan room, and were made feel quite uncomfortable. We were greeted at the door by a... More

I am a local of Ennis town and would have always enjoyed lunch in the bar of this hotel however last Saturday I experienced the worst costumer service. Myself and 5 friends met in the bar for lunch however it was very busy on the day and there wasn't room in the bar for us all to sit together. We... More

I spent a couple of nights at the wonderful Old Ground Hotel this past weekend. We had dinner in the Pub adjacent to the hotel, Poets Corner. What a wonderful pub. Lively crowd with hidden sitting for those who want privacy. We had such a great dinner, we returned the next night to eat there again. The mushroom app was... More

I arrived late and was pleased when they had toiletries I had forgotten to bring. Snack in bar up to 10pm. Quiet night at the back of the hotel. Large comfortable room. Good breakfast selection in a bright pleasant room. Recommended.

Nice hotel with friendly staff. Good location and we had a very spacious well appointed room. Breakfast was nice and in a pretty room. The bar area was quite dark but staff were friendly. Nice cafe attached to the hotel which served lovely food. Plenty of nite life bars and restaurants just outside the hotel and close to the shops.

This is a really lovely hotel which is well located in Ennis. The bar staff are excellent and the welcome from reception and the grounds foyer and hotel are great. However small things and a lack of attention to detail in certain areas let the hotel down. We were staying in a junior suite room 516 - this was a... More

The Old Ground is a lovely hotel in the heart (it actually may BE the heart) of Ennis. The rooms are reliable but not luxurious, but it's nonetheless a good 'stay'. The setting is charming, across the street room one of 2 Ennis cathedrals. The hotel has convenient parking (you don't need a car in Ennis), a lovely breakfast room... More
