Very disappointed in this hotel. Not the standard I expected. On arrival no friendly check in. We were asked our names and then told we had to pay in advance. We booked dinner for that evening which was a disaster. Food was served overcooked and only luke warm. We sent it back but had to wait so long for replacement... More

We booked this hotel due to its proximity to Shannon Airport. Adequate best describes this property. It is adjacent to the Castle and Durty Nellys and that is about it. Rooms are worn, there is no service for luggage ,etc. and , with the exception of one local late last night the front desk staff is surly and not reflective... More

This was our second time to stay here and the only problem is that you have to walk so far to get to your room, you almost need a map. The room is adequate and comfortable, but it's a hike. The breakfast is like eating in a dormatory which I think is due to the reason the cater to Bus... More

This hotel once upon a time was probably very nice. That time is gone. The décor is old and dated and needs to be remodeled. It took them 20 minutes to find our reservation at the front desk. I gave them my confirmation number didn't seem to help. The price was extremely high for what you get. You know the... More

We stayed at this hotel for a friends' wedding and were there for two nights. It's in a lovely position and was a quiet hotel. Perfect for a wedding and the staff couldn't do enough for us all. The room was gorgeous, roomy and with all the facilities you would expect. It's obvious it's a big wedding venue as there... More

It does what it says on the tin. It's an adequate hotel for the premium price. It is clean and has large rooms. It has it's own car park. It's a hotel that is best experienced only if you are planning a visit to Bunratty Castle medieval banquet and Durty Nellys. If you not planning to do either then treat... More

Large modern hotel with a nice atmosphere and excellent rooms. Even though it is modern it still has good ambiance in the common areas and quaintly/traditionally appointments in the room. It's nice to have a really good shower and lots of electrical outlets (including a couple of North American 115V ones) to charge devices.

Stayed here for 1 night, as the last night of our tour in Ireland. Hotel.lobby was crowded when we came in because the hotel was also hosting a wedding reception . However, the staff was very efficient and got our luggage out of the way, and was quickly delivered to our room. The hotel is nicely situated and while staying... More
