Not my choice to stay here and would NOT recommend it. Front door remains open until 1-2am, despite the fact guests being given the key. It is located next to two takeaways and a number of pubs and comes with the scary prospect of revellers wandering into the building at any time of day or night. Noticed another review had a Man U jersey stolen, not surprised given that level of security.
It is a hodge podgy of dark, dreary furniture in the hallway and bedroom. The bedroom smelled both musty and greasy (no doubt from the attached takeaway), had no kettle or hairdryer which are standard in most places now. Bathroom floor had worn, dirty lino and the equivalent of a "tea light" in one of the lights. When I asked for the blown bulb to be replaced in the other light I was told it would be, but it wasn't (maybe best that I couldn't see the full extent of the grime).
Cost €33 for room, with breakfast an additional €7.50 and no parking available. Friends who were attending the same event got lovely B&B's for €40 with delicious breakfasts, secure parking, kettle, hairdryer and iron. Quite a scary place to be honest and I did my stomach a favour by having breakfast in one of the lovely cafes that abound in Ennis.
