We LOVED this hotel. Booked it as a cheap extra night away after booking a more expensive hotel for the following night. And how sorry were we that we didnt stay here both nights! Big old hotel. Clean rooms. Cosy beds. Very big bar with lots of corners to sit in privately. Breakfast the next morning was amazing. Very tasty.... More

If you fly into Shannon early this is a really good place to go for a hearty breakfast before you hit the road north. Good food, good service. Only five minutes from the airport and just off the main road north.

We stayed at this property on our last leg of our Ireland vacation which took us all over the country. Upon check in our room was not quite ready. We went to the pub and after about 15 minutes were told that the room was ready. The clerk at the front desk, Nick was extremely helpful and friendly. He gave... More

Nice hotel, nothing special, room was fine, a bit old fashioned, bed was awfully creaky and noisy, and woke up with a sore neck and aching lower back, I don't have a bad back, so having an aching back from one night in a bed , to me is a sign the bed needs upgrading! Pillows were bad too, flat... More

I have family that live in Shannon, we have stayed in the oak wood a number of times over the years and have never had any problems. It is a beautiful hotel, the staff are very friendly, the food is lovely, the entire hotel is clean.. couldnt ask for anything more!

We stayed here for the night as we had an early morning flight from Shannon the next morning. It is 5 mins to the airport and is priced quite reasonably. The rooms are a decent size and are clean. Yes, they are tired and need a refurbishment but if your expectations are a good price, handy location and a clean... More

Stayed overnight prior to our return from a week in Ireland. The hotel has so much potential. Has a rather English period facade with spacious and comfortable rooms. The rooms though need a wee bit of TLC. The bathroom seemed like it belonged in a nursing home with fixtures and fittings commonly found in such yet bathroom mirror too low... More

Very tired décor, there was only one very overworked staff at the front desk at 10pm. However, the room (while worn) was clean, as was the bathroom. The pub was really hopping, so they could be a plus for those not ready to sleep for the night. It is very large, so quite a walk to our room, including 4-5... More

As previous contributors have noted, this hotel is in dire need of a makeover. It is tired and worn out however, the rooms are clean and functional. For a single night stay prior to a departure from Shannon Airport it works, but I would not stay here any longer. There must be better hotels around Limerick. There is little to... More

Dirty dingy tired looking hotel. Walls and floors are paper thin. Could hear all the things going on in the room above us. Rude staff no extra towels to be had. Housekeeping had gone home. Electrical and plumbing as well as decor need a desperate update. Awful place. Not even a one star. Avoid this place if possible.
