Wonderful hotel in Ennis
Wonderful spot. So beautiful and comfortable. Also right in the middle of everything. The staff was pleasant, helpful, and very accommodating. Our children and grandchildren who arrived the day of departure were welcomed for a fabulous breakfast in the dining room. This was very relaxing for them after a 6 hour flight. Would love to go back and stay longer.

A real Irish village and a great hotel
Very old hotel. Lots of history. Elevator was very small and when you get in the halls of the hotel there is a lot of twist and turns and stairs going from one level to the next. There is a lot of charm to this hotel and the location is fantastic! Breakfast was the same every morning. There is a pub attached that had wonderful food and there is also a fine dining restaurant attached. Ennis is a small Irish town. Known for the old Abby that is a must see. We hired a driver recommended by the hotel to take us to the Cliffs of Moher. His name was David and he gave us a six hour tour! It was wonderful! The only negitive was the beds. I had paid for a queen bed and we had twins. Hubby wasn't too happy but what are ya going to do! Thats Europe for ya!

The hotel has a fireplace from a local castle! The breakfast is very very good. We had fresh fish at breakfast! They serve a full breakfast buffet plus breakfast hot from a menu. Great value in the off season!

Beautiful historic hotel
The hotel is beautiful, and the service was top notch. They were very friendly and helpful, and even left a fruit basket for us to celebrate our honeymoon. Our only issue was that the heat was on full blast, and could not be controlled from the room. The front desk was also not able to control the heat, but did come and open the windows all the way up and provided a fan for us. Again, the service was incredible and we did enjoy our stay, but it was a bit warm!
