As some reviewers have said it needs updating. The enterance area is lovely with lovely couches and chairs to sit on a the lovely fire. The receptionist was very welcoming on check in I asked her if our room was quiet she said yes it was but it was right beside the lift very noisy if you are light sleeper... More

Considering the service we got I think they were very ambitious with the price they charged. We were told check in was at 2pm and we arrived at 2:30pm. As they had a wedding they were quite busy and asked us to come back in 20 minutes. We went into the bar and it was packed, you could not move.... More

Was attending an event in the town so the location made sense. I would not normally stay there as I assumed it was a bit tired and worn. The best decison we made was to pay the extra €20 for a deluxe suite. Big room, big bathroom and nice view at the front of the hotel. It is old and... More

Great location. Right in the centre with a nice restaurant attached and a lively bar on site! The hotel is old and shabby. The rooms are worn and tired. Bathrooms are pokey, dark and old fashioned with cracked tiles, dripping taps and patched up plaster work. Windows do not keep out street noise and the pillows are desperate leading to... More

We stayed for one night only recently at this hotel. Our room was excellent, very large, very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Though the service was slow & staff were not paying attention to residents needs, they were very busy setting up the restaurant for lunch. We had a light lunch in the bar before we left which was extremely disappointing.... More

Myself and partner stayed in the Old Ground Hotel last Easter weekend. Our room was OK. It was a bit on the small side but adequate. After the first night we noticed a leak into our bathroom from an overhead bathroom. When we mentioned it at reception, we were immediately moved to a suite which was fabulous. The staff moved...

Took my mother for a night and we both loved it. Close ro everything. Super friendly and efficient service. Trouble free all round and breakfast is lovely. Added bonus is that mom was able to smoke in the room.

Recently stopped over in Ennis and had dinner with a group in the Bar of this hotel. Excellent food and very friendly service. Will definitely be back.
