Copying my review from the restaurant as it applies to both.... I booked a package for my fiancees birthday. From the moment we checked in we were made to feel relaxed. All of the staff from reception to bar to restaurant are friendly and helpful. Reception upgraded us to a Superior room which was large and would have had a...

Benefits from secure underground parking, so it's worth planning to arrive early enough to get a space. Lift from carpark to all floors, which is good. Impressive lobby, with very welcoming reception staff. In fact, all staff are friendly & helpful. Special mention for the professional problem-solving & sympathetic approach of the Deputy General Manager, Stephen (sorry, didn't register his...

I booked this hotel as a birthday surprise for my wife, and from the moment we parked the car on site Friday afternoon, right up to a late checkout on Sunday, we thoroughly enjoyed all the hotel had to offer. We were greeted by Mark Butler, who had organised some birthday treats in the room for my wife. He was...

Thanks for the super comments. We really make the effort to be different from a chain hotel and look after the guests but still deliver the consistency. Its all about the team and the culture and has the guest at the centre of it all...........although nice food and free carparking helps!! Regards Donnacha Hurley General Manager

After traveling around Ireland for several days, walking into the Absolute was like an Oasis. Lovely room, lobby, restaurant...can't say enough! Great parking facilities too. Each and every staff person was commendable. Best of all, the Nespresso in my room just topped it off.

Accomadation here is maintained at a high standard and the staff make it a very special hotel experience. Breakfast is still fantastic with the variety on the menu all cooked well The evening meals are all cooked well and ample portions. Only slight niggle more American style menu than Irish would like more variety with vegetables.

We visited Limerick for Great Limerick Run 2017 event. Hotel staff and Manager fullfilled our expectations for earlier breakfast. Event started 09:00 am (full 42km) and half (21km) so we were on time at start line :) Many thanks for that. Friendly service, clean room, good breakfast. Close city Centrum. Lots of happenings during River Festival..

The hotel was great! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The location was quiet and there were things to walk to nearby. The area had more to be desired.
