We stayed in the Oak Wood Arms for two nights. The location is great very near to the town and the airport. It's a perfect get away for a family and couples. The decor of the hotel is beautiful and the view from the room was breathtaking. The hotel is within a perfect distance from many tourist destinations. The food in the bar and the restaurant is amazingly delicious and worth paying for. For those who are looking for a silent and serene place away from the busy chores of life you are at the right hotel. We had a great time there and will definitely come back and recommend it to family and friends.

We stayed at the Oak Wood Arms Hotel in Shannon, Ireland for two nights. It's a rustic place, but the rooms are spacious and ameneties are great! Free WiFi, comfortable beds, great (and free!) breakfast were among the things we loved the most. This hotel is within driving distance of the Cliffs of Moher and Ring of Kerry and is close to the Shannon Airport. One of the best hotels we stayed in during our 3-week trip to Europe!!

We stayed at the Oak Wood Arms for two nights. Having originally booked a suite and finding upon checkin that we basically had a standard room, we were upgraded to the Bridal Suite. The four poster bed was great and the sitting room pleasant with a couch & armchairs and area where we could sit and have roomservice - breakfast was good. The ensuite bathroom was superb with a double shower and very large bath with ample space for two! Very romantic. The bar was very pleasant with a roaring fire and a pleasant, warm smoking area. The staff were very pleasant and helpful from the receptionist to the bar staff to the restaurant staff. Nothing was a problem and the hotel was great value for money. We will definitely be staying again.

If you have to catch a flight out of Shannon the next day. Beautiful oak wood rafters, furniture, everything. A beautiful steam and sauna. Dinner and free breakfast were excellent. Highly recommend this place.

After arriving in Shannon on the late flight from London, we only needed a temporary stopover hotel - which was a shame as this was the best hotel we stayed in for our entire trip! Staff were very friendly, rooms and public spaces were immaculate and the location with respect to the airport was fantastic, not right on top of it so planes are noisy but only a short drive away (very well served with taxis only costing approx 10 euros - and the taxi drivers themselves often provide useful info and friendly chats).

Our only complaint was with the breakfasts and this was retrospective - we were somewhat spoiled with breakfasts in other locations which made the Oak Wood Arms decidedly ordinary by comparison... but certainly not bad at all.

Overall, this was a very good hotel and a nice way to start our holiday and I can defintiely recommend it as either a good base to explore Ireland from Shannon or, as we used it, a temporary stopover location before moving on elsewhere.
