Great service, good location- few minutes walk from city center, baby friendly, all areas accessible with baby-buggy, lovely views, good food. Liked that didn't have to look for breakfast times or what time is the checkout- that info was given on the card. Will be happy to stay again.

We chose an upgrade at booking and were allocated a large room with had a nice view over the river. It was pleasantly furnished however the cleaning could have been better as there were lots of little stains which should have been removed. The bathroom was different as it had a glass front and opened directly towards the bed. Not...

Thanks for the overall positive note but some of the comments are tough to take. However they are representative of the experience so we’ll address and drive on. Obviously the accommodation team missed some spots or there may have been some staining on the carpet. We are in the middle of replacing 10 room and will continue every month addressing...

We stayed here 2 nights on our recent 10 day trip to Ireland. It was our favorite hotel! The rooms were great and it was the only hotel that had an American outlet. My wife had an adapter, but was very happy to see this. The night manager, Manny Singh was very kind and helped us so much! Thank you...

We stayed here recently for one night during a trip to Southern Ireland. The location is excellent for the town centre and for the Castle.The staff were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good and the room was very comfortable and clean. We would have no hesitation in booking this hotel again if we return to Limerick.

Myself and my partner held our wedding reception here last night ,we had over 200 guests,a buffet,a live band and dj set booked. Staff were nice and friendly,but there was no manager as such who met with us to organise the night.This was to lead to several more problems. There was one foreign staff member around the floor,who had to...

There are more central locations for a hotel in Limerick, but I find it hard to imagine that there is a better hotel. My wife and I were here for 2 nights and enjoyed everything about this hotel. The location is too far to walk with luggage from the train station, but the hotel is right on a bend in...

Stayed here as part of Groupon trip to Ireland and this was the best hotel out of all 3. Very nice hotel in central Limerick! Clean and friendly service. Would recommend upgrade to corner suite on top floor with terrace, extra large room, etc. Great view!

A wonderful hotel on the banks of the river on the outskirts of the city. Just minutes walk to the shopping district and multitude of restaurants. Just ask Kelly when she is on the desk for wonderful suggestions for excellent restaurants. Skip the driving and walk to King John's Castle and the Hunt Museum. Loved the location.

This past July I travelled with my husband and my in-laws to Ireland for a week. We started in Limerick and worked our way back across to Dublin. We stayed in everything from bed and breakfasts to castles and there was something about this hotel that really stood out to me. The location was great, within walking distance of shopping...
