I stayed 1 night here and arrived a bit early for check in right from Shannon Airport. The reception was able to get me right into a room which was so welcome after a long night of travel from the US. The room was large and comfortable, with lovely bedding. This is such a charming place to stay, with comfortable...

We loved the Old Ground and will return again and again - we felt like we were family! Our room was beautiful - warm and inviting. Amy and the young fella at the front desk were the smiling faces we loved to see each morning. Actually at the Old Ground, there are many smiling faces and happy staff. We were...

What a wonderful hotel. The front desk staff was beyond helpful trying to get us on a Tour to see the Cliffs of Moher when our Tour got cancelled and there was a bus strike. The food in the Poet Bar was amazing. Very quaint lobby where you could sit and have Tea or a Drink.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night. The room was big and clean. The staff was nice and welcoming. We checked in late and were upgraded without asking. We had a pint and an Irish coffee at the bar. We really liked the sitting areas in the lobby. I would stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at this charming old hotel. Room was lovely and relatively spacious for an older property. Lobby was inviting for reading, and staff was enormously helpful. On premises, excellent pub and restaurant. Highly recommended.

This is a gem of an hotel right in the middle of Ennis town. The rooms are immaculate and the staff friendly, efficient and helpful; above all, they are efficient. One thing I like is that electricity converters are supplied. There are three places to eat: the hotel's main restaurant, which is first class; (the only problem is that it...

Dear Tim from Dublin, we sincerely appreciate your very positive review which I have shared with our great team. Many of our rooms are also wired for the voltage required by our many American guests which means they can plug in their appliances without requiring a converter. Of course, we also have wifi throughout the building, if you want to...
