I've never stayed here before so cannot comment on the rooms but on the few times I've ate in bar I've always left very full after a tasty lunch if in area I would definitely say to go here I've always been happy.

I didn't stay in the hotel; however, I used it for lunch on two occasions. They have a carvery that appears not to be extensive; three food choices. I saw various staff members serve the food or rather throw it on to plates. Smile, it does help! My second visit was Friday 10th April; before heading for the train home.... More

We arrived to the hotel after making the reservation online. The hotel is well located right oposite from the Train Station which is the best of all. The room was super old with dust and breaks everywhere, and spider nets. Noisy and dark, with very old sheets and appliances. Worst was when in the morning the hot water was down... More

Very convenient for city attractions and communications. Food is good, both breakfast and lunch. Staff are helpful and friendly. My room was clean and comfortable. I won't hesitate to recommend the Railway Hotel to anyone!

Used this as a brief watering hole while waiting for our bus to Galway, very handy location being right next to the bus & train station! Very fast buffet style food which was perfectly fine but don't expect a gourmet experience. Staff efficient and friendly. It's kind of one of those you get what it says on the tin places,... More

A good location opposite the station and an easy walk into central Limerick. If you are looking for anything other than a cheap, friendly hotel don't come here. It is tired and old fashioned but clean with a decent breakfast and a late bar. This is the second time I've stayed here as it serves the purpose for visiting Thomond... More

We stayed here and was a little disappointed with the condition of the hotel. Carpet and furnishing were a bit worn. The rooms were of average size, and the room was clean. The price was good - the cheapest place we stayed in Ireland. It was a good location, and we were able to walk around town. Having a bar... More

Michele C, Owner at Railway Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Brian, It is very unfair of you to put up a review when you did not even stay with us. Your problem was you wanted a refund of €3.69 that was a non refundable deposit and you didn't get it. You booked a 'standard single room' on line for €30.00 and paid a deposit to the service provider, which... More

I enjoyed my stay here overnight, it was no frills and the rate/price was very good for this frugal, budget traveller. It is across the stree from the railway/bus station and there is a restaurant downstairs. I found it to be clean, simple and a quick walking distance to city centre. It has an old world, 1930s Irish charm and... More
