Booked this hotel for a long weekend in Limerick, had a very enjoyable stay, the breakfast was delicious, all the staff were very obliging, we walked into town each night. The residents bar is really nicely decorated and their cosmos are pretty good!

I discovered the Absolute hotel two years ago and always come back to it. The rooms are exceptionally spacious. I usually stay with my two sisters so you can imagine the bags, cosmetics etc but we had lots of room. The staff are so helpful and pleasant . The food is top class and the evening three course meal was... More

I had a hand massage at spa, therapist was lovely but the treatment was average. For less than half hour treatment I found it expensive. We had dinner at hotel on the... More

First off ,Sorry. As always I hate not meeting peoples expectations and your experience as a 3 star hotel not 4 star is disappointing. I will pass the spa comments on but I would welcome any specific feedback on the dining experience. We are a casual dining eaterie so the pace is quick but you should not feel rushed to... More

A little hard to find in the dark. We dove over the river several times. We could see the hotel, just a little trouble getting to it. Definitely worth the trouble. Wonderful staff, free parking & the most modern rooms we stayed in in Ireland. We arrived after a long day of driving to our nicely appointed room & modern... More

Stayed at the Absolute a few weeks ago. It was supposed to be a romantic getaway for me and my husband, but we ended up taking our 1 year old and mother-in-law with us. The hotel was fully booked, but when I called the day before, they somehow managed to get us a room large enough to fit us all... More

Our weekend at the Absolute Hotel was excellent value for money. There is a lovely modern vibe to the hotel and the rooms and has a boutique style. The staff could not do enough for you and catered to your every need. Our room was so spacious and luxurious and housekeeping standards were impeccable. We will be revisiting soon hopefully... More

My parents are just back from The Absolute . We gave them a present of a weekend stay for Xmas. They were more than happy with the stay. The hotel is near the city center and a short walk as they are in their 60s. The rooms and food were beautiful and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We,... More

Just north of downtown alongside a river. Excellent check-in process. Free WIFI, free garage parking. HUGE rooms. Loved the chic design. Huge beds. Nice bar and restaurant with great bartender - Rick! Easy to walk to anything. Everyone was so friendly. Would recommend and will definitely be back.
