It has been over a year since I stayed but it still stands out as one of the most positive hotel experiences I have ever had. This is despite the fact that there was allegedly an issue with our booking.Straight away a manager was in, had upgraded, apologised for the issue and provided us with a fab room. When I...

We chose the Absolute Hotel in Limerick because of its proximity to Shannon Airport, from which we were flying back to the US. This is a sleek, modern facility with an upscale feel that belies the reasonable cost. We were so pleased that we chose to have our dinner there, as well. The breakfast buffet was also great, with a...

We stayed in this hotel for one night and absolutely loved it, would definitely recommend it. We decided to book a suite as it was very reasonable and we booked a 3 course meal at time of booking. The suite was amazing with our own balcony over looking the river. The food was fab, staff were all very nice, we...

I needed a hotel in central Limerick for a two night business stay and selected the Absolute after reading its reviews on this site. I was not disappointed. I travel a lot for work and rarely find a hotel that I cannot find some fault with, but the Absolute was excellent. Great room, polite, pleasant and helpful staff, excellent food...

We wanted to stay in center city Limerick at a 4-star+ hotel and chose the Absolute because of location, price and free parking availability. They have a garage next to the hotel. It was a great choice. We traveled as a family (all adults) staying two nights in 3 separate rooms. Prices were so good that we (parents) upgraded to...

I found this hotel to be really central in limerick, walking distance to most restaurants and centers. I really liked the underground parking although quite small with limited space I got a space both days I stayed there. The rooms were fantastic.Very modern, clean and with all necessary facilities. The breakfast and dinner area was neat and clean and modern....

Spacious modern rooms with amenities. Style is modern but not "cookie jar" style that is so typical in chain hotels. Very good food served as part of our tour. Close to historical sights and downtown shopping. Not much of a view from the hotel.

We had a two night stay at this lovely, modern hotel in the very center of Limmerick! Great location for seeing sights within walking distance and terrific eating establishments and pubs nearby. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Breakfast was included with our stays and was fabulous - they were eager to provide whatever you desired and with a smile...

This hotel was a great find for us. Limerick is a beautiful city that seems to be rebuilding. The exterior of the building fits well with the city. The interior is like stepping into another world. It's modern; but very welcoming. The staff; like all of the Irish we met; were super friendly and helpful. The rooms were very nice...

We had a wonderful stay at the Absolute, and it started when we arrived hours before the usual check-in time. Rachel at the front desk was so helpful. She sorted out a room for us right away, and we were able to get on to being tourists. The room was bright, clean and well appointed. We loved the lotion provided...
