Just returned from The Falls Hotel & Spa and it far exceeded our expectations.

It's location, just 5 minutes wall from Ennistymon cannot be beaten, with Lahinch, The Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, Lisdoonvarna all within 15 minutes drive max. We spent one afternoon on a drive around the various towns, stopping for a stroll in each, and would highly recommend the area, it is the middle of November, there are very few tourists about, some sites are closed but the scenery is lovely and it is nice to visit without the crowds of the Summer months.

The hotel is very comfortable, gorgeous views, spacious rooms, excellent leisure facilities with outdoor tub, the water temperature was spot on throughout which is seldom the case in other leisure centres we visited.

We ate in both the bar and thai restaurant during our stay, and would definitely recommend the Thai for value and service. Karl was efficient,helpful and so friendly, a real asset to the hotel.

Bernie on reception was also very accommodating and professional with queries we had on departure.

We were not fortunate enough to have views of the cascades from our rooms but were very happy with our visit and would have no problem in recommending it to anyone visiting this beautiful area. We will definitely return in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed in 417, quiet & near reception & leisure facilities

Dear Trip Advisor Member,
Thanks for taking the time to post such a positive review. We are delighted we exceeded all expectations and that you had such a great stay with us here in Ennistymon. I really have to agree with you that despite you visiting here in the Winter the beauty of North Clare is still present and ready to be explored. Sometimes people forget that the wildness and colour of Winter can be even more beautiful than the Summer and since we're open 365 days a year we can always act as the perfect base for exploration.
Your high praise for our staff in particular Karl and Bernie is greatly appreciated and your kind words will be passed on to them directly.
I hope you return to see us again soon!

Kind regards,
Dermot Hogan

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon. We was just pure chance that we came across it but we were so glad that we did. It was such a good hotel with spectacular views of the waterfall which was situated in front of it. The staff were so friendly and the rooms were lovely. We ate dinner in the bar rather than the restaurant and the food was just as good if not better. The lady on reception was so helpful in helping us find a supplier in the area. Really pleasent stay and would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Eat in the bar rather than the restaurant!

Dear Trip Advisor Member,
I hope you both had a wonderful honeymoon and I'm delighted you found us and made our hotel a part of our memorable trip around Ireland.
I hope you got many beautiful photos down beside the Cascades as many couples have done before you.
When the standards of staff, accommodation and food all tick the right boxes you know immediately you have left a lasting impression on our guests.
We would love to see you stay with us again. Maybe return for your first anniversary!

I was really surprised by this hotel, first of all by the very convenient location just off the main street in Ennistymon and then the hotel's spectacular views of the river gushing over the cascades. Reception staff were warm and welcoming. Bedroom was very spacious and we had lovely river views. We had lunch in the bar and it was delicious. The pool and spa were very very good. We ate in the bar again that night and food again was great and not overpriced. Bar staff very friendly. Had a great sleep, no noise on corridors. Beautiful breakfast, loved the freshly cut selection of fruits and fresh grapefruit, not tinned. We're definitely planning a return visit as it was very relaxing hotel and town.

Dear Trip Advisor Member,
Its all about location, location, location! With our close proximity to the local town of Ennistymon and our scenic waterfall setting you were immediately impressed with your arrival at the Falls Hotel & Spa.
Our reception and bar staff certainly had a positive impression on you and we are delighted to see they were all so friendly and welcoming.
As you point out we are all about the quality of our food rather than overpricing what we serve.
A trip away like this is all about the quality of sleep so to see you were so happy with your bedroom is a major plus.
Thanks for the lovely review!

Kind regards,

I won a two night break in the falls through their facebook page!. I booked myself and a friend in for the Bank holiday weeknd and there was no problem with that even though I am sure it was a busy time for them.
We were welcomed to the hotel by reception and treated opurselves to a nice pint and a toasted sandwich, that we ate in comfort beside the lovely warm fire in the lounge area. This area has big sofas and armchairs with a large tv- perfect for just chilling out after the drive from dublin.
Our room was clean and spacious and when we requested shower caps, they were delivered within seconds.
The thai restaurant in the falls is gorgeous, the food was amazing and good value and our lovely waiter Mark really looked after us, giving us advice about where to go in the village for drinks later. On sunday we visited the cliffs of Moher which is only a short drive away adn when we returned to the hotel we watched flocks of birds flying around th elovely grounds! The hotel has a fabulous riverside location with great views of the falls and gorgeous friendly donkeys to pet as you stroll around.
I could not fault the hotel on anything. The leisure area is lovely and I only wish we had enough money to treat ourselves to a treatment in the spa as by the sounds of other reviews, the treatmenst are amazing!
The village has many lovely pubs with some entertaining characters and lots of live music!
I will definitely retun to this hotel again and have recommended it to lots of family and friends, some of whom already knew of this little gem! Fabulous.

Dear Trip Advisor Member,
A big congratulations to you for winning our competition on facebook and I'm delighted you enjoyed your prize so much.
I appreciate the fact you respect our policy of making our prize available on a Bank Holiday weekend but from our perspective it's only fair that the prize winner can use their prize whenever they wish and we try our very best to keep our fairly frequent winners happy!!
You have been blown away by our riverside location like many guest before you and it's certainly one of our greatest attractions.
The standard of your room, the Thai restaurant and our Aqua & fitness club have all received words of praise and all the hotel staff will love to hear that.
Hope to see you back with us again in Ennistymon.

Kind regards,

I was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived at this beautiful hotel on the banks of the river Inagh. It is located on the doorstep of wonderful sights including the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren National Park and Lahinch beach and golf course. The perfect setting for a wedding.

Originally an O'Brien Castle then converted to a Georgian style manor house in the 1800's. It was opened as a commercial property in 1936 and is now owned and managed by the McCarthy family.

The staff were friendly and courteous, the food was excellent and the spa experience was a piece of heaven; thanks to Cathriona.

The bar food was absolutely scrumptious. The breakfast variety was fantastic and everything was hot and tasty. A nice touch was being greeted by Michael McCarthy entering the restaurant in the morning and evening. Nothing like the personal touch.

Thanks to everyone at the hotel that made out stay enjoyable. We will be back.

Room Tip: Try and get a view of the falls; it's fantastic.
