Lovely setting, Lovely food Great staff. Room was fine except Sink stopper would not come out. The other down side was the musty smell from the carpets on the corridors. But overall this was a very pleasant stay and what really stood out was the Staff Bistro and restaurant waitresses were just the best and their attention to appearance was... More

Recently stayed at "The Inn" on a budget weekend break. The hotel is easily accessed from the motorway but beyond that there is really nothing much to recommend it. The hotel is owned by the same group who own Dromoland Castle but that is where the link ends. The facilities and general standard is basic and functional. The management seem... More

we had trouble finding the place, but once we did, we had a wonderful stay. the room was comfortable, but I would not rate it a 5 star hotel, the food was good in the restaurant and the food prices were okay

Brilliant since the upgrade! Comfortable lounge area, friendly staff, toilet areas are clean, powder rooms are more like dressing rooms compared to the cramped loos of old. Ive been here for a wedding, family dinners, meeting with friends, a couples dinner..... all lovely.

My partner and I booked a one night stay for Saturday 30/01/16. We had booked it through pigsback.com and requested a double room for this date. The hotel accepted the booking and when we arrived to the hotel we were given a twin room. we did not mind this as it was quite a last minute booking and noticed there... More

Thank you Annemarie2204 for your review following on from your stay last week, although I am disappointed that you did not have an enjoyable visit. My sincere apologies for your lack of sleep, you should have been allocated on a wing away from the wedding party. Our porters do floor walks during the night, but as you mention it is... More

I have attended a number of weddings over the past years in this hotel and they were always ones to remember. However a trip I experienced with my partner before Christmas far surpassed anything that we would have experienced in the past. The moment we walked in the check in for our two night break, we just felt at home.... More

In the process of being refurbished I think as the entrance lobby, the frontage and the corridors are still living back in the late 80's but don't be put off. Stayed in a newly renovated room which was exceptional for the price of €75 on a Saturday including breakfast. Very clean, immaculate bathroom and linen. Clean curtains and bed throws.... More

This Inn is a part of the Dromoland Castle family. It's touted as being only ten minutes from the Shannon Airport and great for touring the region. But I took a taxi and it was too remote without a car. The taxi was 50 Euro round trip for a short ride. It's been refurbished and concierge was very helpful. It... More
