We went to Ireland on a 7 day package. By far the most stylish and classy hotel we stayed at was the Absolute. Our room looked over the river, There is secure parking under the building. The staff are very helpful! The breakfst was excellent. The rooms were modern, clean and very stylish. I was impressed and I would stay... More

Hubby and I just returned from a glorious trip to the "Emerald Isle". We had the pleasure of staying in four wonderful hotels during our visit. #1 stop was "the Aspect Hotel Kilkenny". Very nice, modern feel. Room was NOT as quiet as promised...there was a "hen" party or something like that going on during the night. Bed was PERFECT!... More

Amazing experience, this is a real gem of a hotel, in the heart of the city without being on a busy street. I was lucky enough to get a room on 5th floor with a view of the city by night overlooking the river, spectacular. Breakfast was delicious, window seat, again overlooking the river, this time I had the company... More

We had a very large room with a view of the river. It was a modern hotel with nice furnishings. Both the breakfast buffet and the dinners were very good. We enjoyed the location and the nearness of the local pubs. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with the exception of one issue. We totally lost all power... More

This hotel was well maintained and well located. However, one of our 2 nights there were a disaster. For some reason the hotel decided to varnish there wooden floor at 3 am without any prior warning or notification. We awoke in the middle of the night to the strongest and most unbearable smell of varnish. It was so strong we... More

We had a wonderful stay here, and the exemplary service began long before our arrival after the third-party website we booked through went into liquidation. It was so refreshing to be able to speak to someone directly at the hotel rather than a call centre somewhere, and we were able to keep our reservation and make the arrangements directly. Everyone...

Weekend deal in this beautiful hotel with fab food and great staff. Location is practically city centre, walking distance from shops etc. Just a word of caution, be careful walking back to hotel from town, quiet area & doesn't feel very safe. Otherwise, recommended.

Superb, spacious, tastefully designed room and great value for what we paid. Lovely bathroom products in the room. Reception staff and breakfast staff really polite, nice and efficient. Great to have the carpark with direct access to the hotel (particularly when it's raining, which it does a lot in Limerick ;-)). Super location and views. Bar/ cafe area was lovely... More

This was a great hotel - very comfy beds and large TV with many channels. The room itself was very large and very clean. The hotel had free wifi and even a coin operated computer available if you needed - but it was rather slow. The ice machine was a nice added touch - you don't see many of those... More
