We’re typically B&B types but we needed a place to spend the night before our early morning flight back to the US and were glad we picked the Oakwood Arms Hotel. It is only a 5 minute drive to Shannon airport and the details throughout the sprawling hotel made for a great stay.
As you would expect, there is oak paneling and timbers everywhere and, in a break from the usual boring hotel décor, aeronautical memorabilia lining the halls and in the pub/restaurant. Our oversized room had a king bed, two windows, sofa and chair, a writing desk, and a large armoire for clothes.
The restaurant is very convenient and about the only thing in around other than a McDonalds (Shannon ‘town’ consists of a rather depressing indoor mall across the street). Even though it was off season and we were the only ones up that early, the staff opened the dining room at 5:30 for a pre-flight continental breakfast.
Highly recommended for one night - or more!

Sad to say but it seems that the Oakwood rooms have not been upgraded. We stayed there three times in December and each time there were problems. First time we got in late and not many cars in parking lot and yet we literally were housed in the very last room which took us 10 min to walk to plus we got lost as the directions we were given told us to turn the wrong way. Next time we had a closer room only there was no heat. Next time there was no hot water. Each time we are only there for less than 7 hours as we are flying out the next morning so we didn't complain as we really didn't have time to do so.

We stayed at the Oak wood arms hotel in January 2011, Our initial reaction was the quirky decor which we loved it gave a real Irish feel, All the staff were lovely especially the waitress in the restaurant who did everything to make our stay one to remember including all three evenings that we ate in the restaurant seating us infront of the huge burning log fire. The restaurant has an adjoining door to the bar area which was great to take our drinks through after dinner especially when my boyfriends football team was playing! The only downfall was the bed, it was quite small and very hard and lumpy, as well as most of the pillows but this was not a huge issue as we had such a great time, talking to the Irish locals in the bar and been given the best service we've ever experienced. We will definitely be returning. So thank you for making our trip to Ireland one to remember.

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.
