We booked this hotel for one night last minute and we were able to get two rooms right away. It is so close to the Shannon Airport (which is why we chose it based on reviews from Trip Advisor).

Ideal for stop over for a night or two if you are flying into /out of Shannon airport. Helpful staff and nice food in the bar. Parts of the hotel - common areas seem to have been refurbished fairly recently. The bedroom I stayed in was pretty dated, but clean.
