Excellent accomodations, beautiful setting, helpful staff. The setting in the shadow of the church steeple is incredibly picturesque. Nice meals in dining room for breakfast, Poets Corner for dinner and music. Five stars.

if you like quality, great service, excellent food - this is the place! The staff are very service oriented and welcoming. The dining room is formal, but never stuffy and the menu surely will appeal to anyone in your traveling party. The food is excellent. The Poet's Pub offers pub fare and traditional music.

From the minute you step up to the registration desk, you understand why this hotel earns the reviews that it does. A short walk from the bus station, the hotel is set back from the road with gardens in the front and a view of the church across the street. The registration desk was staffed during our visit at all... More

Dear Pamela from Waterford, thank you very much, we are delighted that you enjoyed your visit. Our hotel restaurant where you had the superb food is known as the Brendan O'Regan Room - generally our guests don't think to give it a separate review and it is not high in the ratings because they give the high rating to the...

We had a wonderful experience at Old Ground Hotel. We arrived later after our flight and the receptionist was efficient in checking us in. The receptionist inquired of we were hungry and we hadn't had dinner yet. Their restaurant had closed, but she arranged for a sandwich for us once we got to our room. We really appreciated the thoughtful... More

We had an enjoyable stay at the Old Grounde in Ennis. The rooms were spacious and clean. There were several public spaces to read or visit over tea or wine. There were many tourists and a few locals. The dinner was lovely and the service highly attentive. The Poets Corner pub was lively and the knowledgeable bartender helped us make... More

Only stayed one night since we were flying out of Shannon the next morning (20 minutes away). The rooms are so large and beautiful - 4 poster bed, great seating area, bathrobes. It was the perfect end to a beautiful stay in Ireland. Ennis is a nice place though much was closed since it was Sunday.

Maybe it was our jet lag or maybe it was the comfy beds but this was the best night of rest we had. The room had many nice features but one that we did not see anywhere else multiple types of plugs including American and British. Hotel is also easy walk from train station and town restaurants and attractions.

The hotel staff was very friendly right from the start, I could tell it was more upscale. To our surprise we had been upgraded from a double to the honeymoon suite. That being the case I'm not sure how relevant the rest of the review will be there than to say the common areas were clean, the food was good,... More
