“Great Hotel”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

I loved the Absolute Hotel Limerick, It was clean quirky and classy! The staff were very helpful and the rooms were lovely. Perhaps a bit more compact than other hotels of this calibre, but they were so nice. I loved the way the wardrobes were behind the bed and the lovely headboard. The blue lights behind the telly. It was a really comfortable double bed (pet hate when its two singles together) so that was a major plus! I also loved that they had vending machines on each floor with drinks, snacks, toiletries etc which you could charge to your room with your room card. We had a 71ml powers with coke and a box of pringles for €7.50 I was shocked with the good value as many places would charge a lot more for the convenience.

2 negative points.

1. The complementary Car Park is very small so we had to park in Barrington’s across the road which was €5 payable to the hotel for overnight parking.
2. The art in the Bar was weird there seemed to be two which looked like women been murdered under beds or in a bathroom. I found it very odd for a hotel bar.

Absolutely thrilled with this hotel, the hotel was very stylish and swanky, the rooms were a great size and high spec. The bar was lively, great atmosphere. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. I would happily stay here again and recommend it

What a great hotel in a country where all too often, hotels seem dated or plain. This property has a funky, fun and modern vibe to it. The rooms are incredibly spacious, the beds comfortable and the bathrooms filled with modern amenities and plenty of space to get ready. Free wifi and parking add to the appeal of this hotel. Definitely worth a visit if your travels take you to Limerick.

We stayed in Limerick for a long weekend and chose the Absolute Hotel as our base.
From the moment we arrived to the minute we left ALL of the staff were fantastic. The receptionists were up for a laugh but full of local information when required.
The room was very clean, spacious and very modern with all the mod cons.
Parking was available in the underground car park with approximately 35 spaces and an overspill outside if required.
The Absolute Bar and Grill (ABG) is worth a booking as the food was delicious and the service spot on at a very reasonable price.
We found the hotel location was within walking distance of St Johns Castle and other attractions and reasonably close to the city centre.
We walked each day to the city with a nice stop over at The Locke bar which is worth it for a nice Guinness and a bite to eat whilst watching the rugby or the entertainment.
All in all in our opinion the hotel was great location, excellent helpful staff, clean and modern.
Not forgetting that it also has a small gym to work off the over indulgences.
Very happy with our visit, we will return and definitely recommend The Absolute Hotel.

Great funky hotel. Very welcoming staff. Good breakfast, but maybe add some kippers to breakfast menu ! Close enough to walk to Limerick city centre. Very historic part of town. Will be back. Recommend it.

Hotel was amazing, absolutely amazing, really really was blown away with the Superior room, the space and double set of Tvs back to back really was great. The bed was definitely not hard as per previous reviews, the shower was fab! Room was cleaned to perfection also. Hotel was designed to perfection I loved every detail from the clocks showing times around the world behind reception to the tumblers in the bathroom to the paintings on the walls. Breakfast was gorgeous really loved it the only negative was the scrambelled egg was watery and the toast was only done on one side. Also the parking for the hotel was bad but it didnt affect how fabulous the hotel was or our stay, would definitely go back!

Checked in on Saturday and we were treated to an upgrade, room was perfect and had great view. Second time staying here and we were not disappointed . Facilities were brilliant and the gym was nice option to have before having big dinner. Staff were excellent and very friendly . Buffet breakfast is great and very tasty . Only advice is book dinner in hotel early it books up quick at weekend. Will stay here again.
