Visited the Oakwood hotel for a graduation lunch/dinner. We received excellent service throughout the day, staff were brilliant - very helpful and the food was delicious! Really made the whole day very enjoyable.

Visiting Shannon a couple of weeks back I went to the Oakwood for the Sunday roast. I was served by Katie, who was so welcoming, prompt, professional and attentive. Got the beef with the lot and it was the best roast I've had in Ireland. Top class. Great food and really friendly staff. Fully recommend for anyone stopping through Shannon.

Stayed here for one night while on business in Shannon. Overall marking out of Ten I would give a 8. The pricing on the Bar Food Menu is steep for what you get but good quality. Breakfast wasn't great with undercooked bacon and toast that barely saw the toaster. Overall nice Hotel with mostly friendly staff but room for improvement!!

This hotel is so convenient to the airport, which is why I originally chose it. Previous reviews stated that the renovation, which was ongoing, was resulting in a good experience. What did encourage me to reserve a room and stay was the fact that managers at Oakwood replied to the reviewers' comments. That made a very good impression on me,... More

Got off the plane in Shannon and took a breath of fresh fresh air for the first time in a while. Was so pleased with this hotel. The pub was great our 26 year old as well as ourselves. The food and music was a lot of fun with people of all ages.

Nice sized room; asked for quiet location - back of building; no noise at all. Old and renovated section. Our room was definitely not renovated. Hotel decorated like old medieval castle. Restaurant food was ok - salmon good; chicken on dry side.
