I stayed for only one evening on the tail end of a 10 day trip to Ireland. We chose the hotel mainly for its proximity to Shannon airport. The hotel was very large, with beautiful reception and common areas. The ladies at the reception desk, true to Irish hospitality, were warm and kind and friendly and helpful. This was a...

This hotel has good and bad points. Before we arrived at the hotel we asked about laundry 3x and could not get a straight answer. Upon arrival we find out it is 5 euros per shirt. I asked if there was any kind of laundry place around and was told, "no, everyone has a washing machine and all the laundrettes...

Staff worked with our small group, adjusting rooms as needed because of some online booking confusions. The room I shared with a friend was comfortable, clean, and quiet. Good dinner places within walking distance.

While we only stayed a night, it was a really nice place! It was spacious (we had 3 of us in the room), super clean and modern/updated. The front desk was very friendly too :-) We came, of course, for the Bunratty Folk Park and Castle. And this hotel is a hop, skip and a jump from it. Excellent location....

Nice hotel but not worth the money rooms very basic and old , definitely in need of modernization. Staff very friendly and huge beds make for a great nights sleep. Good location if you have your own transport if not you will definitely have difficulty.

I stayed on level 4 and the room was large in size with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was also large and everything worked fine. Wifi worked well in the room. The only...
