My family and I recently went on a coach tour of Ireland and this hotel was our first destination. It is a beautiful country-type hotel with all the amenities you could think of. The food was fantastic. Attached to the hotel is a great pub with Irish music entertainment and the pub food comes from the hotel kitchen where the...

Charming building, in the town centre. Friendly, professional staff. Fabulous rooms, spotlessly clean. Excellent restaurant. Great bar, with the best pint of Guinness I've ever tasted. The Old Ground is one of the best hotels in Ireland.

The Old Ground has a veritable host of reasons to be proud of itself and it is entirely evident throughout. The hotel from reception to rooms, to each of it's two restaurants and pub is a 10 in my opinion. I wasn't able to adjust the heat one day, housekeeping was there before I got to the room after asking...

Location: highly convenient. Parking: ample; we came in late during many nights when the dining room was packed for one function or another and always managed to find a space, though sometimes a shoehorn was a necessity. Room: comfortable; very nice bathroom. Breakfast: the best we had in Irish hotels, and many outside this country. Internet: can be a problem...

For the first leg of our Irish journey, we picked the Old Ground Hotel as our lodging, in Ennis Ireland. While even our GPS was challenged to find the parking lot for the hotel, once we arrived, we knew we made a great choice. The grounds outside reception were lovely, and so very green in the light misty rain. There...

This is a quiet hidden gem in the charming town of Enis. The staff is attentive and the food is very good. A great stop on your travels through Ireland. Find your way to a pub for a Guiness and Irish music.
