“Hen Party Package”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

I booked the hen party package for my sister and we were delighted with our choice. My contact in the hotel was so helpful with all the arrangements prior to the weekend. We stayed over the October bank holiday weekend and even though the hotel was extremely busy we were really well looked after. The package itself is very good value. We had a lovely meal. The staff were very attentive and went out of their way to help if I asked for anything. Would recommend it as an option for anyone looking into a hen party venue.

I stayed in three different hotels while in Ireland. The wifi in the room was fine for surfing the web, but I was unable to facetime for more than a few seconds. Other people in our group had the same problem. I left my adapter at the last hotel and was able to buy one for 4 euros in the vending machine.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you were unable to use facetime while staying at our hotel. We do have excellent free wifi at our hotel and I know that many guests use Skype and don’t seem to have any difficulties. I will pass on your comments to our IT company as I am not familiar with facetime. I look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the near future. Kind regards, Ivan Tuohy General Manager

This hotel is the tallest hotel in Ireland. However there are only two elevators. We stayed on the 13th floor. Rooms are nice albeit a bit small. Again, as with most hotels on our Globus tour, my wife and I got twin beds. Great television, air conditioned' in-room safe' fridge, comfy beds, shower over bath however there was some mould in the shower.

We ate at a pub nearby, only a few hundred metres away. It was a nice meal and very good service. They have a lot of bands playing at the pub regularly but that is not our scene. It was quite popular with the locals for eats.

I recommend the Clarion. The views are not much but the hotel is quite nice except for elevator issue.

Stayed here for one night in mid September got a good last minute deal when we booked with the hotel directly.
Found the rooms quite bland with a rather uncomfortable bed. Also the breakfast we found was only ok bar food on the other hand was very nice.
With a little bit of a improvement this hotel has great potential.

A good hotel with excellent staff and service. Nothing was too much trouble for the polite, friendly and cheerful staff.

Important to me was that the wifi and broadband were the best I've come across in a hotel, quick and reliable.

The room was fine, the bathroom and shower good and with great views over the Shannon and the city. If only the single bed had been more comfortable and the duvet had actually reached over the sides of it,

Breakfasts and the food generally were good, hot and substantial

Nice hotel on a par with a Holiday Inn 4 Star. Has a basic feel to it walking throughout the corridors, like a halls of residence. The room had great views over Limerick and the River Shannon. Room well appointed and basic. The bed was disappointing but comfortable enough for sleeping, but did not exude luxurious sleep feeling. The breakfast was excellent, well done not greasy and plenty of choice and service was great. Generally a good business hotel. And good value was fair.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with River view

First, the bad. This is not a 4 star hotel. Our room looked tired and dated, like some old armchair quietly trashed after its occupier moves on. There were numerous dents and cracks in the walls. The exhaust fan in the bathroom sounded like a jet engine choked by a seagull. The iron did not work. And for those of us who like to take a little wine and cheese before retiring, the bar fridge was there in its decaying glory but oddly disconnected.

Reception told us that in order to start the tatty thing up we would have to provide either medical or personal reasons?

Now the good. To be perched, quite literally, 13 floors above the Shannon River, was truly spectacular. We could see the flowing water, the bridges with their pretty lights and the city beyond. The staff at reception were friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the rare opportunity to soak in the bath (something I can never find the time to do at home) and we both slept like little lambs. We also found a fabulous cafe nearby, Petit Paris, that served a top class full breakfast.

All up, this is a good hotel that somehow seems to be way behind in its maintenance schedule...

Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear that you thought that your bedroom looked tried and dated. We do have 158 bedrooms and with this we have 2 full time staff in maintenance. We do our upmost to ensure an excellent standard across all areas within the hotel. The mini bar fridge is turned off in all our rooms as it is very rarely used. I will ensure that my front office team are fully aware as to the reasons and what the simple straight forward procedure is that is required to turn it back on. Thank you for your positive comments on our friendly staff and the great views from the hotel. I look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the near future.
