As it was a Monday night in January I expected the hotel to be very quiet, instead the bar was busy and the bistro almost full. The whole staff were helpful and very efficient. My...

This hotel has it all. It is charming and comfortable with the most courteous staff I have ever had the pleasure to come across. The bar food is excellent and the restaurant menu equally delicious. I would recommend this hotel wholeheartedly and will definitely return.

A warm hotel. Nice and cozy with a great pub attached, The Poets Corner. Known to have musicians that come in and play, we were very excited. There was a reserved table for the musicians and everything. Unfortunately, there were no players this particular night. We were only in Ennis for a short stay. It was lovely but limited by...

On arrival we received a very warm welcome. The fire was lit in the lobby and the atmosphere was festive as befitted the time of year. We enjoyed an excellent evening meal and good cooked breakfast the following morning. The bedroom itself was large and exceeded expectations.

This is a lovely traditional old style hotel with lots of charm and character. We stayed on New Year's Day and there was a great festive atmosphere. The hotel was very busy and the staff were so attentive and helpful. Theo at reception was just great and has a great sense of humour.
