We stayed at the Old Ground twice (two seperate nights) on our recent holiday/ visit to family members in Clare and Kerry. The hotel has a very traditional feel- nice 'period' decor/ furnishings and good old fashioned service. Both rooms we stayed in were a very good size- although one had a larger bathroom than the other. Breakfast was very...

We arrived to a lovely welcome, our room was large & comfortable with a very luxurious bed. Had a great nights sleep. Breakfast was served in a gorgeous old style room very tastefully decorated. The menu had a delicious selection and was served to our table, a rare treat & so much better than the usual hot buffet. We ate...

This is an absolutely charming hotel I couldn't pay them enough compliments. The room was perfect, supremely comfortable bed. The food at breakfast was only ok but the staff and the service more than compensated. The dining room is lovely and the circular table at the window would suit a group of 6 comfortably. Ennis is a very nice small...

I stayed at the Old Ground on Saturday just gone with a large group of girls. The hotel is really well decorated and our room the very same. I often find that a hotel room is a hotel room, however this had a little more individuality. The previous review hit the nail on the head, it really is good old...

Excellent charming old style "proper" hotel, Superb staff and plenty of them too. Lovely large room , nice residents seating area. elegant dining room. Excellent town centre location. The lack of sufficient car parking is the only downside.

Very friendly staff but room a bit small and badly arranged. Also incredibly hot! Breakfast was really good and I note that all the 'full Irish breakfasts' we have had have been 'grease free!' Bacon here is wonderful and so are the sausages. This hotel has its own bar attached call 'Poets Corner' which is also accessible from the street....
