There's a fine line between hanging onto historical charm and needing upgrade and the Oak Wood Arms is about to cross that line. Though the hotel is situated near the Shannon airport, it shouldn't rely on that as a reason not to update their rooms. Our room, all the way at the end of the hall, had a musty smell...

This is a return trip due to the satisfying trip during our last stay in Ireland. I will definitely book rooms here again during our next trip to Ireland. Love the comfortable seating areas along with the pub and the restaurant on site. The food was delicious, presented nicely at a very reasonable price. The staff and friendly and very...

The hotel has the old world charm. It is located close to Shannon airport and the Aviation Museum. There is a shopping area within a walking distance. The rooms are well laid out and maintained. The corridors have interesting aviation memorabilia and fancy chairs. The hotel has a good breakfast spread. It offers an enjoyable stay.

We checked in very late and got a disinterested welcome from reception. Despite the fact the i had booked both rooms, she assigned one in one wing and the other a five minute walk and two staircases away (the place is a true maze and it's mysteries are compounded by low lighting and dark furniture and fabrics). Front lobby and...

Arrived exhausted from airport....walked into lobby and assaulted with horrible, smokey smell. Sullen unfriendly receptionist. Asked for rooms together...in different counties. Difficult to find rooms...in some cases upstairs, no elevator, no offer to help. Room did not seem fresh. Nothing special about breakfast.....sticky floor. Bed for a night, convenient location...that's about it.

Needed to stay overnight in Shannon waiting for friends to arrive on early morning flight. The choices are pretty limited on where to stay. Oak Wood Arms is probably a VG by Shannon standards, but .... Provided you have minimal expectations your stay will be fine. Room was clean and it all worked. Wasn't game to try the restaurant. Had...
