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.

We stayed here on New Year's Eve for one night and enjoyed our stay. The rooms and hotel were very clean and staff seemed very helpful. The hotel is old fashioned and hard to get parking at times but the breakfast is beautiful.

The rooms are nice and the beds are very comfortable, although tea and coffee facilities would have been nice. Parking is an issue but the hotel has an arrangement with the school next door so only a slight inconvenience. The staff are very knowledgeable and really helpful and attentive.We were asked three times in the bar if we needed service....

Thank you for such a detailed comprehensive review which we will share with our team and take your suggestions on board. As your overall review was so positive, I am a little surprised at such a low rating for location, service and cleanliness and wonder is it possible that this was an error. Best regards Mary
