Myself and my Mum stayed here last week Wednesday to Saturday. I've been in Ennis many times but never stayed there and this was my first visit to the hotel. The food was gorgeous, the rooms very lovely and extremely clean and well stocked with necessities, but the biggest hat tip goes to the staff who were all without exception...

We had a great lodging experience in an ideal city centre setting at The Old Ground. The room was clean and bright with a queen bed and one twin bed. The bath/shower was modern. Bathroom floor is heated. Room windows open for fresh air. Front desk staff easily helped us with local travel questions. There is free parking at the...

We stayed in the Brendan O'Regan suite. It was very comfortable and nice and quiet at night. So close to the town centre, can walk everywhere from it. Staff were so helpful and friendly. Had full Irish breakfast, was delicious. Had veg soup and a chicken dish on one evening but didn't think they were great. Would definitely stay there...

We stayed here April 11, 2017. Nice Hotel centrally located! Luckily they have a free private car park for guests. Yes, there is a small elevator, not all hotels in Ireland do! You can walk to all the shops, restaurants and nightlife which is great. The room was clean and spacious. The television was small, looked like a 19 inch...

Stayed here one night after our trip to Dingle Peninsula and then on our way to Cliffs of Mohrer. Arrived for an early dinner on Easter and the restaurant was jumping but we sat at the bar and the bartender was very friendly despite being very busy with a big Easter crowd and a big hurling match. They soon found...

I stayed 1 night here and arrived a bit early for check in right from Shannon Airport. The reception was able to get me right into a room which was so welcome after a long night of travel from the US. The room was large and comfortable, with lovely bedding. This is such a charming place to stay, with comfortable...

We loved the Old Ground and will return again and again - we felt like we were family! Our room was beautiful - warm and inviting.
