This hotel is well located both in the town of Ennis and near the area's attractions. It's a short trip to the Cliffs of Moher and Bunratty Castle using Ennis as your home base. The hotel has a large parking lot on one side and a charming walkway leads you to Ennis's main street on the other side. The hotel's lobby and pub promised great guest rooms but they are small and ordinary. However, they are clean and comfortable and worked all right since we weren't in our rooms for much more than sleeping. This hotel is a renovated convent and the event room beautifully shows off the features of the former chapel.There's also a lovely library off the lobby. We only ate breakfast here which was served in the main restaurant.The staff was friendly and helpful. It was very good but not outstanding. An added bonus for me was to find out this used to be a Sisters of Mercy convent founded by Catherine McAuley. As a proud alum of Mother McAuley High School, I was amazed to find that, out of all the hotels in Ireland, I booked us into this one.
