Our room for a two night stay was large, but was on the main road. There was no double glazing to reduce the noise and the bed was very soft and lumpy, leading to a very poor sleeping experience. There also was very poor lighting for reading. The staff was friendly and helpful, though they could not fix the room's... More

I made a dinner reservation at the O'Regan restaurant in the Old Ground Hotel some three weeks in advance for a special family occasion. I called in person three days prior to confirm numbers and request a circular table. The restaurant manager showed me the table and took note of the table number alongside the reservation. When we arrived on... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Old Ground on our recent trip to Ireland. What a fabulous experience we had. We arrived hours early before check in time but the staff at the front desk couldn't have been more friendly and hospitable. We were told our room would be ready in approximately 30 minutes and in fact it was... More

Full disclosure, my mother is from Ennis, was married across the street and had her reception here in 1981. I love Ennis and have always loved this ivy covered hotel. I had to spend a few nights here over the years due to guests at the house and was always impressed. Wonderful staff, nice old school rooms right in the... More

The room was nice size and the staff was very helpful. Traveling with my sister and arrived a day early to avoid jet lag. This was a bank holiday weekend and... More

Spent our first night of Rick Steves' tour here. Overall a good experience. Our corner room on the front of the hotel was noisy and the bathroom very small. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was a little slow as the dining room was rather small and there was constantly a line waiting to be seated.

This is a modern hotel that manages to look and feel cozy and vintage. Very comfortable room, with a great bathroom. My window looked out on the cathedral across the street so I was worried that it would be noisy with traffic. But it was actually quiet.

The Old Ground is a bit pricey, but the rooms are wonderfully outfitted and it's located in the heart of the city. We booked the junior suite, it provided room to spread out and everything was spotless. The only problem we experienced was with the reservation staff, who assumed we were part of a tour because we were Americans traveling... More
