Only stayed 1 night at the Ormonde. Very nice entrance but the room was average and not 4star. Although clean, room was dated. Night table had old cigarette burn and certainly gives a bad impression. Bar staff was terrible, not sure they knew what they were doing...maybe regular bartender didn't show. Four of us waited 15 minutes to get served,...

The location makes this an excellent place to stay and explore the city. Parking is just across the road. it has an excellent leisure centre on the premises as well. The staff, as in nearly all Irish hotels, were great.And the bar food was good and of value. The only downside was the noise from the band at wedding on...

Stayed there over a weekend. Staff were very friendly and the hotel couldn't possibly be in a better location. Food in the hotel was excellent and in general the hotel was very clean. Rooms are reasonably priced. Would strongly recommend this place.

Stayed here for a nice break away and at 180 a night was expecting a much higher standard of hotel. The paint was flaking away from the side of the bath, there was fake tan marks in the doors and walls also. The floor beside and under the beds were filthy as were the skirting boards. We had dinner in...
