My cousin and I stayed here for two nights. Michelle who checked us in could not have been nicer. The room was fabulous and our requests for a quiet room with a view were taken seriously and we were accommodated accordingly. I would agree with the reviewer who complained about the pillow. I found the pillows too hard and forgot... More

The rooms were very nice. I was impressed. The beds were average, but pillows were flat/lifeless. The room at the price I paid was an excellence value. I wish this hotel, that is trying to be a premium property, was not running the exchange rate scam. I was asked if I want my credit card charged in Euros or Dollars.... More

Thanks for the positive feedback points during your stay. To address the scam allegation, it is important to clear up that there is none. Guests are offered to pay their bill in local or home currency. There is no forcing or leading of guests to go one-way or another. There is a clear choice. Guests should be told the home... More

I just stayed in the absolute this weekend after it being highly recommended. I have to admit I was disappointed. This hotel is clean but basic. I got a deluxe room & it was standard. Too far out from the city to be worth it. The spa facilities are not great and massage was not good. Really don't like the... More

Thanks for the feedback but I’m disappointed how we let you down in a number of areas. I’ll take on board the feedback regarding location and rooms. Sometimes we’re just not what people expect and that’s always a disappointment for us to let people down as they arrive. I’ll give the specific feedback to the spa and we’ll practice our... More

In the heart of Limerick, a brand new gorgeous hotel. Rooms were very nicely appointed. Attractive bar and restaurant with a good breakfast menu. Walking distance to castles and food! Staff was very helpful with suggestions, and directions to local attractions. Free secure parking and wifi greatly appreciated.

Great place to stay in Limerick, beautiful interior and the parking is a nice addition. Walking distance to dining and attractions! We had a wet floor in the room we checked into and they relocated us within moments to a new room.

Although it was a very brief stay I can't speak highly enough of the Absolute Hotel in Limerick. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was lovely (free upgrade offered and gladly taken) and for the price I couldn't have asked for more. Breakfast in the morning was also very good with a wide range of fresh options available.... More

We picked up a special January offer of 60 euro for a room. Probably the best value for 60 euro that I have ever seen. Rooms were top class (one for parents and another for our three children). New hotel, nice design. Maybe introduce some craft beers into the bar. Food was good.

We stayed here on New Year's Eve and were very happy with our choice of hotel. The hotel is in a great location. We were going to the NYE Concert in Limerick and the hotel was only a 5 minute walk away from the venue. The room we had was very comfortable. I liked the frosted glass bathroom door. It... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. From outside firstly you don't realise how big it is . Going up to 5/6 floors. We checked in for one night and were having dinner too . I must say the front desk crew are refreshing . They were efficient - friendly - very warm to deal with and didn't come across... More

Have just returned from a fabulous stay in the Absolute. The hotel itself is amazing - stylish, spotless and comfortable, with friendly welcoming staff who genuinely want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The hotel was perfect for us - a few girls in limerick for a rugby match and a spot of shopping (of course!). Would 100%... More
