We had a team lunch in the hotel, the food was of good quality and huge portions.
Considering we were a large party the staff looked after 40 of us with no problem.
Highly recommend for groups or individuals

myself and my husband stayed in the absolute hotel on saturday, food was lovely. but the smell of the bins going from the car park up to the reception. i nearly got sick, it was absolutely disgusting. the room was perfect. i personally prefer a bath in the hotel to relax after touring for the day. but we only had a shower. but that was only a minor thing, the staff were lovely and we did enjoy our stay. but they definitely need to sort out there bin issues.

Thanks for the overall positive feedback regarding the room, food and team. I have no idea where the smell came from as the bins are kept in another part of the building. I have no doubts there was a smell but I cannot identify it at this stage now. Unfortunately I’ll have to put it down to an isolated incident unless I can identify the source of the smell.
I truly hope you will still come back to us at some stage

Newer hotel that is spacious and very nice.
Rooms are very fancy and modern. Washrooms were very large and neat. Mood lighting in the room is a nice romantic touch.
Hotel is well apointed and quiet for the most part.
Staff at the front were very helpful in providing info.

Ice machines were not working, but the manager personally got us ice and apologized for the problem. Parking is limited, but the staff continued to check for stalls and let us know one was open. Our room was above the conference centre, so we heard the music from the wedding below, but we tuned it out quickly.

Very nice place with an unbeatable price, we would gladly return here again

Room Tip: Don't pick a room directly above the conference centre on a weekend, the music can be loud for s...

Stayed here for one night while in Limerick to see the band Chic. Had early flight so arrived at hotel at 10.30am and was just going to drop bag off and go but they checked to see if a room was available which it was, stayed in 505 top floor and great room with loads of space 2 tvs lovely shower. Went back to reception who supplied me with a map and loads of info were to go and what to see, only 5 minutes from bars and shops. did not eat in restaurant as so many other choices nearby. good hotel, nice people, perfect location. Did not use spa so don't know, disappointed they did not have a swimming pool.

Stayed here for two nights on our tour of Ireland. Quite a difference from other traditionally styled older hotels. Excellent room accommodations. Both breakfast and dinner food very good. Beds were comfortable. Didn't have much time to explore right around hotel but made trips to Galway and Cliffs of Moher.

My husband and I stayed here one night before a flight out of Shannon. The front desk was accomodating and gave us a map of the city. The room was very comfortable and clean. We did not get a chance to use the restaurant unfortunately. Free garage parking!
