I recently bought a weekend spa break for Falls Hotel and to be honest, for the price I wasn't expecting that much - but I was very pleasantly surprised.
The Hotel is an old manor that has been extended and it's setting is beautiful, perched on a hill overlooking the river's waterfalls and countryside (great for walks around, but also 2 mins to the town centre). It's only 2km from Lahince and is great for exploring the Cliffs of Moher, Doolin and surrounded areas (everything is within 15/20 mins by car).
The hotel rooms probably could do with some modernisation but weren't THAT dated. They were clean and had everything you need in them. The lobby area was lovely, as was the restaurant. The bar has a very weird layout though and the live music was a bit cringe. We strolled down to the main street instead and found some cool little old man pubs with proper trad sessions, a fire and very welcoming staff (Cullinan's Bare on the main street). Food in the restaurant was nice. The pub was standard pub food - not great, but not too bad either.
Couldn't ask for more here - the pool area was beautiful (that of a proper spa as opposed to a leisure centre/gym swimming pool feeling) and it had a gorgeous outdoor hot tub over looking the waterfall and river.
All in all - definitely worth the money (€100 for a double room, for 2 guest, 2 nights B&B). A great spa and perfect base for exploring Clare.
My boyfriend and I are are late 20's/early 30's and my parent are early 60's - we all loved it.

Relax and unwind in the renowned Dylan Thomas Bar. The Grounds of the Hotel extend to 50 acres of gardens, woodland and glen. Its river walks and woodland pathways offer a haven of peace and tranquility, yet it is only 30 minutes away from the booming county town of Ennis and 50 minutes away from Shannon International Airport. ... more less
