I really enjoy staying in this hotel. I'm just back from my 3rd visit there and will definitely be back again. We were a group of 8 girls away for the day and night. On check-in our rooms were available early and we then relaxed in the hotel bar with a glass of wine and nibbles. Our rooms were spotless,...

Stayed here for one night while in Limerick for business. The staff at reception were very friendly and welcoming, and I was able to store my suitcase at the front desk after I checked out but was still in town for a few hours. I was in a standard double room, which was incredibly big and spacious! The bathroom was...

We stayed in this hotel for three nights last month. Our room was very spacious and modern over looking the river. A great TV for watching the late world cup games when our kids were asleep! The bathroom was nice with a great shower and a good supply of towels etc. We enjoyed a lovely meal in the restaurant and...

I only generally take the time to write a review when I'm very impressed by a place. I booked this hotel last minute as a treat for my boyfriend and myself. We just had the one night and I really wish we had a few days staying here. We are from Clare so not too far to travel and often...

This hotel was a bit difficult to find, even with GPS since it doesn't stand out very well, and there is a one way road that surrounds the hotel. Go into the parking garage as soon as you see it, for ease of accessing the hotel and not doing another lap around the property. You access the hotel from the...

There is no thermal area which is norm in any spa I've been in & where...

From the outside it looks like and average city hotel, but what a fabulous, modern, friendly hotel it is. Lighting in the bar and reception is amazing. The price for a nights stay is reasonable. Atmosphere at the Bar in the eve and breakfast was swift in the morning. Quiet Hotel. Very upscale

At first glance it looks like your average city hotel, but one you step inside its a whole different place. So modern and efficient. Lighting was amazing. Room was like a honeymoon vibe. Staff were so pleasant and helpful. Food was just Amazing that we even took those silly selfies with it. Location was great for what we had planned....

During our three-day trip to Ireland, we stayed at three different hotels I found on the internet - by far the nicest place was the Absolute Hotel in Limerick. What a fabulous, modern, friendly, upscale hotel. The prices are very reasonable, I would say, for such a nice place. We were luckily upgraded to a suite, which was possibly one...

Fantastic hotel! Very clean, great staff, great restaurant, great location. This is a must stay at location if staying in Limerick City. Very close to the "must-sees" of Limerick City. The Absolute Hotel is within walking distance of O'Connell Street, St. John's Castle, St. Mary's Cathedral.
