Hello TripAdvisor Member,

You really received a wonderful gift!
I am very happy that everything on your two night break was of your liking. It is delightful to hear your praise of one of our many locally sourced dishes such as the Burren rack of lamb.
To be able to unwind after such an enjoyable meal in our River Spa proved to be an extra bonus for you on your Valentine's getaway and seeing happy customers is the main element of the service we provide at the Falls Hotel & Spa.
Hope another visit to the Falls will be on the cards soon!

Kind Regards,

As far as I am concerned a hotel is a place to lay your head at the end of an interesting day, as long as it's tidy, clean and peaceful, that'll do for me.
The Falls Hotel exceeded my expectations. We were staying for the purpose of allowing me to explore the local area. The hotel was easy to find and visible from various high points in Ennistymon, not surprisingly really, it's huge.
The check in was easy and quick, no bother whatsoever. The room was more than sufficent and the onsite activities were more than enough for anyone who didnt want to brave the elements.
This place is situated in a beautiful part of Ireland, a quaint village not too far from Lahinch, with a beautiful waterfall visible from the front of the hotel and the bar area.
We were offered afternoon tea upon arrival in the bar area which was great.
The swimming facilities were perfect for exercising or relaxing.
There are other leisure facilities but we didnt get chance to try them.
For a 2 euro deposit you get a towel. The changing rooms have lockers but they do not lock so avoid taking valuables with you.
The staff were polite and helpful at all times.
The Thai restaurant located within the hotel is stunning... the food was beautiful and reasonably priced. We had a platter to start and then individual dishes. We couldnt finish what we had and Im a monster when it comes to food.
The bar served amazing beer battered fish and chips along with salad... excellent.
We spent one evening in the games room, played around 15 games of pool and had just as many pints.
Breakfast is served in the cascades area down stairs. Its a self serve buffet with full Irish on offer or for those who look after their hearts a small bit more, there is a selection of fresh fruits, cereals and pastries. Or, just try it all......
Great location, great food... perfect break away

Room Tip: We stayed in room 506 over looking river

Hello TripAdvisor Member,

You have painted a beautiful picture of our hotel and for that we are very grateful.
Our scenic surroundings and the incredible views from our hotel rooms have definitely added to your appetite for our small little town in county Clare.
From the cuisine available at the Thai River restaurant to breakfast in the Cascades your respect for our food on offer is truly appreciated.
It's very rewarding for the Falls to see that we catered for all your needs whether you wanted to relax with a few pints playing pool or enjoying one of our many treatments on offer at the River Spa.
You described your trip as a "perfect break away" so I hope you decide to have many more breaks of perfection with us at the Falls in the not so distant future.

Kind Regards,

Dermot Hogan

The public areas of this hotel, lobby, bar, restaurant and pool were lovely. Unfortunately our room was very old fashioned and dated and I thought the price was a little high as a result. Other than that the food was lovely and staff were very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms that have been renovated.

Hello TripAdvisor Member,

Firstly I would like to thank you for taking the time to write this review of your stay at the Falls Hotel & Spa. We greatly appreciate equally your positive comments and your minor constructive criticism.
I am thrilled that you admired the public areas of our hotel and how you found our food and staff to be of such a high standard.
In terms of our accommodation I am disappointed that the design of the room did not meet your taste but we are constantly updating and modernizing all our accommodation on offer so I hope this is not a deterrent to prevent a return visit to us here in Ennistymon.

Kind Regards,

I got this hotel as a weekend deal through the hotels Facebook page.

I did not expect to much as i had not paid too much for a weekend away for 2 B&B and a bottle of wine on arrival. I was wrong.

We arrived on Friday evening and were given a huge room with a double, single and with a Cot as i had rang to request this.(the hotel charge nothing extra for this). The room had everything we needed, was spotless and had loads of room for the buggy and everything else that a four month old baby requires.

We had full use of the leisure center and had the option to book and pay for spa treatments. The main pool is big and had a large kid's pool off of it. The pool also had an inbuilt Jacuzzi section. There was also an Jacuzzi in the corner if you didnt think the pool one was hot enough.
A unique feature that i had not seen before was an external Jacuzzi and also a Sauna where one wall was a window and overlooked the river below.

The Breakfast was great. The usual cereals, Fry up and breads. Tea / Coffee/ Juices.

The only flaw anf is only a minor flaw is that the breakfast runs from 8-10 Mon -Sat and 08.00 - 10.30 on Sunday which for a hotel this size leads to congestion in the restaurant in the morning time.

There is plenty to do locally and Lahinch beach is only a few kilometers out the road.

Overall we had a great weekend and would return to the hotel again
