The Tullamore Court Hotel is far from the usual Irish tourist track. It's in the very middle of the country, midway between Dublin and Galway, between Cork City and Belfast. Thus it's ideal for business meetings, at which it excels. But the Tullamore Court offers much more too for it's guests: play golf, explore the ruins of nearby Clonmacnoise Abbey or the famous Bog of Allen, visit family, or for Irish families on a short break with the kids, a chance to relax while still having plenty to keep the kids busy. It's located in Tullamore but on the edge of the busy town center, less than a10 minute walk from the enclosed shopping mall, other shops and some good Tullamore restaurants.
Rooms are very spacious and very clean. Bathrooms actually have room to turn around in, unlike many European bathrooms. Satellite TV on flat screens is another nice feature after a day of golf, touring or visiting. Free Wi-Fi in all rooms helps to keep up with the latest at home and in the world, although reception on the top floor can fade in and out. The Court is a friendly place in the great tradition of rural Ireland. Staff will go out of their way to please. The main restaurant serves a delightful full Irish breakfast, both buffet and cooked to order. The restaurant seems to be open only sporadically in the evenings. A sign with opening hours would be helpful. It's almost not important, however, since the bar/pub area is very spacious and serves excellent food from sandwiches to full meals. There are plenty of tables and lots of room to spread out, both inside and in the very nice enclosed outdoor garden. The bar is well stocked with all your Irish favorites, including Tullamore Dew whiskey which began it's storied history here in town.
For the exercise-minded there are workout areas and equipment, for the business people, there is a business center. For all there is a very nice indoor pool with accompanying hot tub, jacuzzi etc.Staff are more than happy to arrange for golf at nearby courses as well.
Tullamore is about 60 miles from Dublin, less than an hour by train, so it's far enough to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city. But it's close enough to spend the day in Dublin and then come back for a relaxing evening in the pool, the pub or both.
The other important fact not to be omitted is price. This is a legitimate 4 Star hotel with 2-3 Star Hotel prices. If you're in the area, you'll not do better than the Tullamore Court.
