“Good choice for the match”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

My wife and I stayed at The Kilmurry Lodge Hotel recently as we were attending a Munster rugby match at Thomond Park . Our room was very comfortable if a bit on the small side compared to more modern hotels . It was also at a perfect temperature , unlike some others which can be too warm . We had toasted sandwiches and drinks in the hotel bar , quality and service were both very good . There is a bus service ( 5 Euro return ) from the hotel to Thomond Park which is excellent value . I would advise using this service earlier rather than later , as traffic builds up in city centre closer to match time , and it then takes a long time ( ~ 40 mins ) to get over there . Overall , we found this hotel to be excellent value if you are staying over for a match !

My wife and daughter and I stayed here for two nights recently and we were extremely happy with the wonderful stay we had at Kilmurry Lodge.

The staff were excellent. Everyone from reception, the bar and the breakfast room was very helpful and friendly. The room was very nice with a comfortable double and single bed and the en-suite bathroom was good with a great shower. The wi-fi was a welcome benefit for my daughter.

We had food in the bar one evening and the quality and service was excellent although it was a Saturday and quite busy. It was one of the best bar meals that I have had anywhere.

We really enjoyed the character of the hotel with plently of little quiet areas with couches and chairs where you could sit and relax. It was certainly more pleasant than some of the sterile 'new' hotels which can be rather soulless.

We were in Limerick to visit my daughter who is at UL so we were looking for a hotel that we could come to with confidence time and time again. The location was good just off the Dublin Road and with plenty of shops etc nearby.

The price was also good

I would certainly recommend this excellent hotel and look forward to returning again in a few months time.

We were desperately searching for an evening meal before everywhere closed. We could find no parking in Limerick city centre, which was unfamiliar to us. Eventually we headed out the Dublin road and found Kilmurry Lodge Hotel at a roundabout, where we just got in ten minutes before the 9.30 pm last order at the restaurant. "You need not have worried", said the kind lady who served us, "We would never let you go to bed hungry, they would have fixed up something for you from the Bar". Our order was delivered without delay and was very reasonably priced. Our only complaint would be that in the dark and the rain, it was not so easy to find the entrance from the busy roundabout, but once inside the warmth of the welcome made us forget the stress of getting there.

My parents just returned from their Ireland Trip and raved about the Kilmurry Lodge Hotel. They are older (in their 70's) and said the hotel staff was so kind and accomodated all of their needs. They enjoyed the menu and the clean state of the property. I am leaving in three weeks to go to Ireland and I have also booked a room at the Kilmurry Lodge. I hope to have the same fantastic time that they did!

I stayed here recently. The hotel has a brilliant and convenient location. Its very easy to get to, situated on the main Dublin Road. There is ample free parking.

The staff are very helpful and friendly. The check in process was very easy and quick.

The room itself was comfortable and clean, but the ensuite was extremely disappointing. The sink was tiny and there was just enough space to fit my two hands under the tap. The pressure coming from the tap made the water splash all over the place, wetting the toilet roll on its holder, soaking the floor and the mirror. The walk in shower was disappointing. It has a cattle grid style floor where the water drained through the latts. (Not very hygienic) Also the odd hair lying in the corners of the tray was very off putting.

The door to the room is very hollow and you can hear anybody whispering outside the door. There was no iron in the room.

When you are paying €81 for the room you expect to be able to sleep and have a clean bathroom.

However the room did have free WiFi and it was very reliable and had a strong connection. The room also had a thermostat allowing you to adjust the temperature in the room. This was very good. The bed was very comfortable and clean.

The food service in the bar can be quite slow. People who ordered their food after us were getting their food before us. The food is lovely though.

There was a great atmosphere in the bar.

Overall I thought this hotel was ok, price of the room needs to be reconsidered given the ensuite facilities. Overall, I probably would stay here again and hopefully the ensuite conditions were just a once off.

Dear hgst,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at the Kilmurry Lodge Hotel. Firstly to explain the issue with the en-suite; the room in which you were allocated was a disabled room. We have several disabled rooms in the hotel, each of which has the cattle grid draining system as mentioned in your review. The small sink is a spec required for disabled rooms. You would have been allocated this room only if all other rooms had been occupied prior to your booking. However this doesn't excuse the unhygienic state of the shower and I do apologize for this. I have brought this to house-keeping's attention and asked that a deep cleaning be carried out to all disabled en-suites.
Please be assured that your review has been discussed with in detail by management. We were very pleased to note that there were many aspects to your stay that you did enjoy, but certainly areas we can improve on when a situation like this occurs in the future. I would consider this type of occurrence to be a rare one and I do hope we can make amends on your next visit to Limerick. If you would like to email me on jack@kilmurrylodge.com when making your next booking I will insure a higher level of accommodation is provided,
Warm Regards,
Jack

Spent one night, and it is a good budget hotel. Location is close to UL. Internet connection is good and free, as is parking. Rooms are spacious and clean. Buffet breakfast good. Nice friendly bar staff. Don't think there is a lift for those with a need for that, but many rooms on bottom floor.
A warmer alternative to other chain budget hotels.

Dear snoodiemctockish,
Thank you for taking the time to write a warm review of your stay at the Kilmurry Lodge Hotel. It was pleasing to read that you found the hotel to be of good value for money. You are correct in saying we don’t have an elevator/lift service, however guests will only ever have to encounter one flight of stairs (either up one flight or down one flight) to reach their rooms. In addition to this, all disabled rooms are at ground floor level and ‘porter or luggage’ service is available upon request. Thank you once again for your review and we look forward to welcoming back to the Kilmurry Lodge on your next visit to Limerick,
Warm Regards,
Jack

I recently ran an event in the Kilmurry Lodge Hotel and was more than pleased with the high level of service that I recieved, from the planning stages, right through to the event itself. There is plenty of parking around the hotel. The staff were very friendly, helpful and more than accommodating, going above and beyond meeting any any of our needs.The staff in the Kilmurry Lodge really cared for us when we were using their facilities. The food in the restaurant/bar was delicious and served without delay, even with such a large group. The bedrooms were spotless and very very comfortable. The ballroom was easily accessible for the group and very spacious. There was a nice warm, friendly, homely feeling to the Kilmurry Lodge Hotel. Its location was just perfect and was easy to find. I look forward to visiting the Kilmurry Lodge Hotel in the near future and i'm 100% confident that the group that travelled with us in August will only grow in the years to come. The hotel and event were, and are still spoken about today.

Dear Gary O,
Thank you for taking the time to post such a wonderful review on tripadvisor. We were delighted with how the line dancing weekend went last August and I know from speaking with my colleague Des, that he is very much looking forward to the next event here in the hotel. I have passed on your compliments to the various department heads and all members of staff. We look forward to your next visit and to seeing the event go from strength to strength.
