This hotel is near the Shannon airport which is why we chose it. It is an older property and the rooms need updating. There were water stains on the ceiling and the tub was in need of repair. The continental breakfast (offered early to accommodate early flights) was unremarkable--canned fruit, dry cereals, toast. It was overheated in the room. We...

Just back from 2 nights at this hotel. Hotel was spotless, very quiet and central to all the places we wanted to visit. Had bar food in the hotel and was reasonable, except we waited 45 minutes on our main course arriving and the bar wasn't even busy. Also the cleaners were very noisy early in the mornings. Room was...
