I bought a groupon voucher for this hotel for an overnight with 4 course dinner, breakfast and late checkout for two. We had tickets for Neil Delamere in Glóir theatre in Ennis so made a night of it.

You can't beat the location of this cozy, old-fashioned hotel. It's a quiet property on the edge of the center of town. Restaurants, shops, and pubs abound, all within a five- to ten-minute walk. I liked the wood-paneled look of the hotel. It felt homey. The people at the front desk go out of their way to help and security... More

This converted church is well situated in downtown Ennis. Walking distance to everything. Rooms have basic amenities, clean, and twin beds. If you've got a car, then this is the best hotel in the city with a parking lot. Get a GPS though, it's difficult to find! Check-in was slow as was check-out. Security is really tight in the evenings.... More

We had a very warm welcome and good advice for food and music locally as well as driving directions to obscure sites, they could not do enough for you. Breakfast delicious, Preachers Pub rocking when the games are on, rooms clean and fully equiped. Tranquil nights sleep and sad to say good bye to such friendly staff.

I had a by disappointing over priced lunch here on Saturday. Bar lunch with two tiny pieces of indigestible chicken in a wrap overfilled with melted cheese. We were in a group of 11and feedback from others was very average. Service was great, location is great, but the kitchen simply have to do better
