From the Check in with Adam to the Dinner in the Restaurant with Barbara, we had a wonderful time the experience of which we will remember fondly. We received 5 Star treatment from a courteous and efficient staff. If you are...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night. The room was big and clean. The staff was nice and welcoming. We checked in late and were upgraded without asking. We had a pint and an Irish coffee at the bar. We really liked the sitting areas in the lobby. I would stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at this charming old hotel. Room was lovely and relatively spacious for an older property. Lobby was inviting for reading, and staff was enormously helpful. On premises, excellent pub and restaurant. Highly recommended.

This is a gem of an hotel right in the middle of Ennis town. The rooms are immaculate and the staff friendly, efficient and helpful; above all, they are efficient. One thing I like is that electricity converters are supplied. There are three places to eat: the hotel's main restaurant, which is first class; (the only problem is that it...

Dear Tim from Dublin, we sincerely appreciate your very positive review which I have shared with our great team. Many of our rooms are also wired for the voltage required by our many American guests which means they can plug in their appliances without requiring a converter. Of course, we also have wifi throughout the building, if you want to...

I have stayed here twice before and it just gets better and better. I adored it the first time i went, and this time we were unexpectedly upgraded to a STUNNING room. Reception staff are top class, food in the bar is delish and staff in the bar feel like friends after a brief conversation. So homey and luxurious tough...

The room was lovely and the staff couldn't have been more helpful from receptionist to the guys doing the room service. It was a wonderfully relaxing stay. Will definitely stay here again but will stay for longer this time.

The service in this hotel borders on exceptional. This hotel is located in downtown Ennis on a one way street. I had originally parked my car just above the hotel. To make things easier for me, the hotel staff watched the one way street so that I could back-up on the way street and enter their parking lot without driving...

We were staying in town looking for a place to eat when we came across this hotel. We were going to eat in the bar, but it was too full so we walked towards the restaurant part where we were greeted very warmly by a staff member who introduced himself as Keelan.
