On arrival we were greeted warmly by Marie at Reception and from there everything about our stay was wonderful. Dinner was exceptional and breakfast was the best we had for choice and excellent attention by all waiting staff.

The Old Ground Holel was a wonderful choice in Ennis. The location is ideal being in town and an easy walk to everything: the Friary, Clare Museum, cathedral, St. COlumbia church and O'Connell St. ( The main street). An old hotel, the rooms are comfortable, not fancy. The public areas are warm and inviting. The restaurants are excellent. The staff...

We checked in later at 6:30 pm and were surprised to have a lovely room. The hotel is nicely situated across from a church and has a lovely outdoor area in the front...
