“Exceeded my expectations, highly recommend.”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

We had our wedding at the abbey court in late August and I cannot fault anything about the service, food, presentation and venue. The attention to detail was exceptional, everything I wanted and more was executed perfectly and with a smile. The staff here are all so friendly and helpful especially Imelda, Ray and Eileen, they put me at ease every step of the way and the day ran faultlessly. The hotel were very accommodating to people's needs even at short notice(a few late check outs!) and really went out of their way to make sure we were happy. the food was delicious and from feedback we have got from our guests everyone else was happy with it too, the rooms were clean and comfortable(the bridal suite is amazing!). I didn't get to use the pool but I heard it was lovely.
There is just a lovely atmosphere in the hotel, its warm and cosy and the gardens are beautiful-every time I've visited over the last few months I've always felt welcome and relaxed. I will definetly stay here again, or visit for dinner(pork rolls and chocolate lava cake) and will not hesitate in recommending it to friends. If I could change one thing I'd have a residents bar in the bar but I don't think this would have improved anything about our day- it was perfect. Thank you Abbey Court:)

Stayed in one of the 8 bedroom lodges with extended members of my family. They where brilliant - plenty of rooms which where excellent in size and despite the house being full nobody was in on top of each other. Almost all of the bedrooms are ensuite, well laid out and presented really well. Not shortage of towels, bedding, cutlery etc. Back gardent was good in size and fully decked. The hotel itself was of a very good standard. Prices were reasonable and the service excellent. Kids Club though good was more geared for the younger ones and certainly not for 8 year old upwards. Great value though with a swim time and meal thrown in - the couple of hours peace is well worth it!! The Swimming pool is a good size with plenty of add on facilities including a well stocked gym. The only disappointment was the evening entertainment - need to have a good look at this sorry to day.

I would recommend this hotel especially for the staff and service levels they give.

This hotel also offers self-catering lodges. We stayed at one of those, a 3 bedrooms one, not at the hotel. However, the hotel facilities can also be used by the lodges clients so, we were able to use the spa and the restaurant. We are a family with children so we were only allowed to enter the spa facilities at "children hours" and then it was too crowded to enjoy a peaceful moment :-(
The lodges were spacious and clean but I would say they were missing some additional kitchen equipment: more glasses, more cutlery, some dishwasher soap, etc.
The hotel location is great and the service was always correct, as expected. The only meal we had at the restaurant was the breakfast of the first day and the variety of the food offered is high and its quality, very high.

We stayed here on Saturday night as we were attending a wedding nearby. If we had had more time upon our arrival we would have complained about the room. When we walked in we were dismayed to see a very tiny double bed that was barely large enough for two averagely sized adults, and the room was pervaded by a stale smell of old human sweat. The sheets were perfectly clean but obviously either the mattress or the bedspread needed to be changed. Fortunately we were adequately sedated by wine when we went to bed, but we left as soon as possible the following morning. I still shudder when I think about it.

Stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed it. This is definitely a family friendly hotel which caters for young kids. There is a games room with pool, table football etc which is a very good addition. The food in the restaurant is very good, would highly recommend the ribs.
The hotel is only 5 minutes walk from Nenagh mainstreet so its in a really handy location.
Overall we were delighted we stayed and would definitely go back.

We've bought a deal for 2 nights BB with evening meal as our relaxing short break. We've liked the hotel from the minute we arrive, as it looks very nice either outside and inside. We were surprised that it is only 3* hotel as the standard was much higher at first sight. Room was specious, very clean, with huge bed and duvet, very comfortable. The bathroom needs a some refreshment (maybe change separated taps for mixing one and nice glass facet instead of plastic curtain, which for sure would look more elegant). Room is fitted out with all facilities that you can expect. One thing that we've always missed in hotels is bathrobes and slippers, but we are aware that 3* is not obliged to provide them for guest. By the way, it would be nice to offer them on request (even for small charge), especially for guest who like to go to the swimming pool or spa. It would be more comfortable than change to normal clothes after swimming or taking treatments.
On the first day we went to bar for lunch and small dinner snacks. The food was tasty and nice seasoned, portions were huge (some of them too huge), atmosphere in the bar was nice, especially with live music. Next day we went for dinner in the restaurant. Service was good and food was nice. Only thing that might be changed is different menu for the bar and restaurant - to give guests more choices and different experience each evening. We was also surprised that there was no beef or lamb steak in menu, as the bar is called Steak House, and that is one of the most attractive dishes in many restaurants - would be happy to order one, even for additional charge to the deal menu.
In general we have had really nice and relaxing stay, staff was very friendly, especially Tara in the bar and restaurant and girls in reception. Hotel has a nice decor, big swimming pool and jacuzzi, well maintained nice looking garden, big parking, and very good location, near to town center and main attractions. For sure we will recommend it to our friends.
