Staff was very helpful. Spacious, clean rooms. Close to airport but no shuttle. A couple restaurants within walking distance attached to a mall. Bunratty castle was only a few minutes drive. The building is very nice but old so you can hear the heavy doors slamming throughout the night. Overall would definitely reccomend for price.

We stayed one night after driving up the west coast, and decided to stay here before going up to the Cliffs of Moher the next morning. The hotel is conveniently located off the highway, and a couple minute drive into the Shannon city centre. Next to the hotel is a gas station, McDonald's, aviation museum and pizza place. The hotel...

Stayed there overnight before a morning flight out of Shannon. Very clean hotel with spacious rooms and a friendly helpful staff. Very good buffet Irish breakfast with plenty of choices. There is even fresh brewed coffee which is hard to find in Ireland. No instant coffee or coffee out of a Kuerig machine. Only a couple of minutes drive to...

We LOVED this hotel. Booked it as a cheap extra night away after booking a more expensive hotel for the following night. And how sorry were we that we didnt stay here both nights! Big old hotel. Clean rooms. Cosy beds. Very big bar with lots of corners to sit in privately. Breakfast the next morning was amazing. Very tasty....

If you fly into Shannon early this is a really good place to go for a hearty breakfast before you hit the road north. Good food, good service. Only five minutes from the airport and just off the main road north.

We stayed at this property on our last leg of our Ireland vacation which took us all over the country. Upon check in our room was not quite ready. We went to the pub and after about 15 minutes were told that the room was ready. The clerk at the front desk, Nick was extremely helpful and friendly. He gave...

Nice hotel, nothing special, room was fine, a bit old fashioned, bed was awfully creaky and noisy, and woke up with a sore neck and aching lower back, I don't have a bad back, so having an aching back from one night in a bed , to me is a sign the bed needs upgrading! Pillows were bad too, flat...

We stayed here for the night as we had an early morning flight from Shannon the next morning. It is 5 mins to the airport and is priced quite reasonably. The rooms are a decent size and are clean. Yes, they are tired and need a refurbishment but if your expectations are a good price, handy location and a clean...
