We stayed at the Oakwood Hotel prior to a flight at Shannon Airport. Other than a shopping mall, there really wasn't too much in the area within walking distance. However, the hotel was just lovely. Our room was perfect in every way. The property itself was quite deceiving. It looked small from the outside but was anything but once you...

My husband and I had our flight home to the USA cancelled. The airline put us up at this hotel. Despite the fact that this was an unexpected visit by a great many people, the staff is to be credited for their excellence! The food was wonderful, the rooms very nice, and the staff went out of their way to...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on our hotel. As you noticed we are located in the Shannon town, a perfect location if you want to take a walk to the local shopping center, but more importantly we are just a few minutes drive from Shannon Airport. We are the ideal location to stay in if...

This is a lovely hotel and the food is great only complaint is the music choices being played in the bar/restaurant just a suggestion it would be worth a thought if something different was played.......

I stayed in this hotel earlier this month. If you stay here, ask for a room that has been renovated. My room was quite large and spacious. Breakfast was ok, but nothing terrific. My family also had a private party (sit down dinner for about 25 people) on the night I stayed. The function room was lovely, the food was...

Good points: very nice looking bar, restaurant and function rooms. Bad points: poor hygiene standards and upkeep of the hotel. Our first room was just off reception and the noise levels were ridiculous. There was also a very obvious stained hand print on the ceiling in the bathroom (looked like blood) and the paint was peeling off the wall in...

This hotel is in a great location about five minutes from Shannon airport and 10 minutes from Bunratty Castle. There is a mall right across the street. The hotel is older but much of it has been updated without losing the old Irish charm. Wifi worked well and electric sockets were easily accessable to charge phones, laptops, etc. The best...

We were happy with our choice of this hotel. It's an older property but nicely maintained and appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. Good location to explore the area. We only had breakfast there and it was excellent. Good value on nice hotel.

My grandson and I stayed at the Oakwood Hotel in Shannon the night prior to our departure from Ireland.
