"Perfect hotel"
Lovely room, clean and comfy. Restaurant is wonderful, staff is friendly. Very short walk to center of town. Parking a little tight but any New Yorker could figure it out.

"Fantastic hotel in a good location."
*Pluses- This hotel exceeded all our expectations. It's modern and beautifully decorated and the rooms are absolutely huge (even by American standards). The desk featured US, UK, and European outlets. Of note, this was the only hotel on our trip that provided wash cloths in the rooms. Each floor has a crushed ice dispenser. We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and both were top notch. Try the fish chowder! There is free parking garage under the hotel. *Negatives- The vending machines on a couple of the floors were out of order.

"One of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at"
Beautiful hotel. Friendly staff. Rivaled most genuine 4 star hotels I've stayed in. I was really impressed and felt very welcome. Close to attractions in Limerick as well as a strip of really great restaurants. I was all over Ireland and England on our vacation. This was our best hotel easily.

"Overnight stay in Limerick"
Hotel is in a convenient location, literally a stone's throw away from the cathedral and King John's Castle. Beautiful interiors and well furnished rooms. Hotel is well maintained and the staff were all friendly. A no brainer to recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Limerick. I would expect to have paid much more for a hotel of this stature.

"Good if you want to just relax"
Location is convenient to downtown Limerick, there's just not much to see in downtown Limerick. Nice bar, restaurant, lobby, helpful staff, OK parking but the bed was pretty hard and the maid service started noisily cleaning nearby rooms at 8am so that was a bit tough.

"New hotel, feel of luxury for a good price"
The hotel is modern and fresh with great views of the river and an easy walk into the city centre. The front desk staff were helpful and efficient. The room cleanliness, openness, large modern shower and Juliette balcony were highlights. Restaurant was a poor experience. Told bfast starts 9AM (not true). The two staff members stood at the desk rather than keep items replenished. When asked for eggs and beans neither arrived without a second request. Took 20-25 minutes. The melon had turned and there wasn't much other fresh fruit. Canned with sugary sauce is not 'fresh' fruit. The eggs were really runny which I found unappetizing. Ended up eating two clementines for 10 euro. The key downside to our stay. I would also recommend that the hotel upgrade the parking experience. We found the hotel with a sat/nav (GPS) and were able to park on the street in front while checking in. But it's a one way road and the car park is now behind you. Two suggestions. 1) create a few spaces along the driveway to the car park for check-in 2) add signage along the streets guiding guests back. Several streets that appeared they would go through but narrowed and ended with blockades and only way out is to back-up. That was fairly challenging for two city drivers. I would stay here again but would not dine here even for breakfast.

"Hotel Absolute in July, Limerick, Ireland."
We do not travel much but this was the most modern room in our Ireland trip. Big lobby, room has air conditioning (first in our Ireland trip), plenty of receptacles for recharging appliances; comfortable bed; roomy bathroom; problem with the glass bathroom entry door was taken care of by the staff very quickly. Very friendly staff from the front desk to housekeeping to the bar/restaurant staff. The meals we had were good. We did not try breakfast but the 10 AM scones, tea, lattes, and mid-afternoon lunches (until 5 PM I think) were good. Location is close to the castle, the Locke Bar (friendly staff and good food), 10 minute walk to TI, Hunt Museum. Not in modern central area of Limerick, but all was accessable. We walked everywhere. Negative is the access: it was tricky to find the front door the first time on foot.

"Total Comfort"
Excellent accommodations--clean, immaculate room with bedroom & living room, plus A/C. All the amenities of a four-star hotel: restaurant on site, concierge, parking garage, etc. We were only there one night, but couldn't have been more satisfied. We arrived 3 hours ahead of check-in, but were given a room immediately without even having to ask.

We were really pleased with our stay at the Absolute and it exceeded our expectations. The reception staff were really friendly and helpful and gave us a great recommendation for dinner. The room was huge and spotless and the bed was extremely comfortable. The location was a short walk from the main shopping area so and right on the river. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

"A Quiet and Stylish Hotel"
I loved this hotel. My room was immaculate, quiet and thoughtfully crafted. Had a lovely view of the River and Toiletries were great. The only flaw is the limited parking in the hotel garage. However they do have a reasonable price for guests negotiated at the garage right across the road.

"business and pleasure"
Conveniently located - near grocery store, nice restaurants, easy walk to bus stops for CityLink and Bus Eireann. VERY quiet hotel. Missed refrigerator in room :-( even with the suite which we had. Nice little patio overlooking canal for evenings and morning coffee with the suite rooms. Extremely helpful front desk. Accommodating wait staff though on the only two occasions we ate there, a little slow on getting a check to us. The room cleaner for our floor seems overworked (understaffed). She was clearly frazzled and working hard and fast but had a hard time getting to our room before 4:00 (5 days). Sunday brunch 12.50 Euro each was a great deal including coffee/tea. Nice spread - something for all.

"Good location"
Absolute Hotel is a good location for walking to all sights and restaurants. Stay on the most traveled roads; neighborhood is a bit questionable. We walked to Sir John’s Castle and then over bridge to The Curragower Seafood Bar for an excellent Seafood Pie and Seafood Chowder in this cozy pub; also lovely view of Shannon River (weather permitting). Hotel has limited free underground parking; we arrived early (4PM) and were able to use the parking ! Hotel is only 30 minutes from the Shannon Airport. The shower water pressure was the best we experienced during our 2 week driving tour (mostly B&Bs). Nice way to end our Ireland visit before heading to the Shannon Airport.

Our hotel room was absolutely amazing! The furnishings were ultra modern and every inch of it was gorgeous. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom finishings were beautiful, and we had a balcony overlooking the river. It is within walking distance of restaurants and shopping and the staff of the hotel was great about making reccomendations. There is also free parking in a controlled access garage. The one downside was that we were not big fans of the surrounding neighborhood, but if you are going to be staying in Limerick this is definitely the hotel I would choose.

Great experience. Only sorry we only had 1 night. This hotel has thought of everything. Beautiful decor, comfortable spacious rooms. Great bathroom, best shower we had during our entire trip. We arrived after a long day of driving and enjoyed delicious food at the bar. All members of the staff, from the front desk to the bartender and wait staff were attentive and welcoming. This is the place to stay. A little hard to get to in the dark. We drove over the river several times, but it was worth the confusion.

"Absolute comfort"
This was by far the most comfortable hotel we encountered in over a week in Ireland. It's a very modern up to date property with a very helpful staff. We cannot speak for the dining at this stay since we instead asked the concierge for a dining recommendation instead and he really came through. I can say however that it was the best nights sleep either of us had had in a long time. Slept like a rock throughout the night and was ready to begin the next day's adventure. I would highly recommend this hotel as a stop on your travels.

"Nice hotel, with a few SNAFUs"
We stayed here for one night after spending the day in Limerick. The hotel is very nice, perhaps the nicest I've stayed in in Europe. We did have a few issues with the room, though: the sheets were stained, and the shower drain was clogged. The sheets were replaced promptly, and they then gave us a new room due to the shower. So the service was great, but it was disappointing to need it.

"One day in Limerick"
For out trip, spending one day in Limerick, the Absolute Hotel was in a great location, within walking distance of everything we wanted to see (King John's Castle, St. Mary's Cathedral, downtown Limerick, the river walk). The free parking under the hotel was limited and tight (as is most parking in Ireland), but there was space for us, and it's protected by a security gate and door. The internet in the room was decent, and easy to use. The restaurant had wonderful food (as do most slow-food restaurants in Ireland), and the rooms were very modern and comfortable, although the bed was somewhat harder than I prefer. My only complaints were that, and the fact that the shower leaked out into the bathroom, but I can't complain overall! They didn't have a pool or hot tub, but for the price, I couldn't ask for more. Oh, and the staff was very friendly, and pointed us to some places on a map for our short stay. P.S. I highly recommend the Hunt Museum Cafe for lunch!! (a few blocks away, in the Hunt Museum)

The room was very large but the chairs, table and beds were old and need of replacing. The carpet was dirty. The bathroom was very nice, there was a shower separate from the bath. Had double sinks.

"Nice Hotel Between Old and Older Limerick"
The Absolute Hotel was a great place to stay within walking distance of downtown Limerick and King John's Castle. Over all it was comfortable, although I would prefer a softer bed, quiet and clean. They even had one US outlet available on the outlet strip on the desk. All the staff I had contact with were helpful and pleasant. Since they are a VIP hotel they automatically upgraded my room without asking. Free parking garage was great so I didn't have worry about the car and figuring out where to park, or paying an additional $20-$30 a night to park. If I ever come back to Limerick, I would stay here again!
