Stayed here May bank holiday weekend. Fabulous hotel. Room decorated to the highest standard. Staff were all really friendly. Location right in the middle of the town. Plenty of parking. The only thing I faulted was that the hotel bar was so busy, it was hard to get a seat. However this is a good complaint as they are obviously...

Our first two nights in Ireland. We stayed here on a recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed. We had an extra large suite thanks to our travel agent letting them know we were celebrating an anniversary. From check in to check out service was remarkable. Our favorite part was The Poets Corner pub, through a door off the...

Stayed here whilst visiting Ireland for work. Friendly staff at reception, good clean modern room with free wifi and large bathroom. Free wifi in room too. If I had to find a fault the bar/restaurant was far to busy as it is also a public house. There was no room service on offer either to my knowledge. Would recommend it...

I used the hotel for a family event. The venue was clean and welcoming and the staff were excellent both during the booking process and on the day of the event. They were friendly and professional and could not have been more helpful.

My daughter and I stayed here one night. We were greeted by a friendly reception lady who signed us up for a late dinner in the restaurant. We ate lunch in the Poet's Corner when we got there which has the dark wood and cozy nooks throughout. We had a warm Brie with currant jelly sandwich, and it was served...

I must say I wasn't overly impressed with Ennis. Compared to the rest of ireland it's very dirty, litter everywhere and many store fronts are closed. But, we were only here to get our plane in the morning. The hotel room was one of the cleanest and up to date we had in all of ireland this trip. The staff,...
