“Hotel by the river...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

I have stayed here maybe 5-7 times over the past 2 years altogether maybe 50 nights.
The ++ of this hotel are:
- Location, nicely put next to the river, with a nice view and just a short walk to the city center
- People working there are very nice and helpful
- One of very few hotels in Limerick that is part of the chain (for those that collect points)
The -- of this hotel are:
- Very bad breakfast. I travel a lot and this is one of the worst (selection and quality) I have seen
- The TVs in the room are CRT, so those big ones that people used to have 10 years ago. Again, all hotels I have stayed have LCDs except this one
- Hotel rooms are very average
- Parking is in the next parking house which does not belong to the hotel (although they have a deal with them), which is just not as comfortable as if it would be part of complex (had some difficulties with parking cards)
- Whatever is next to the hotel (some huge piles of iron) just does not look nice, but hotel rooms are position opposite way...

I would stay here again, but it is mostly because of lack of better choices (based on what I heard) rather than loving this hotel. However, having said that, it is a good average hotel...

Thank you for your review. I am happy to read that you are a regular visitor to our hotel and that you find our location and our staff to be very good. I am disappointed to read your comments on breakfast. This is one area that we do receive a lot of positives on, I feel that we have a huge selection of hot & cold options on our buffet and we even have an A la Carte menu with items such as Eggs Benedict, Omelette of your choice, smoked salmon & Scrambled Eggs. I would really appreciate if you could email me at ituohy@clarionhotellimerick.com prior to your next visit to us so that I can ensure that if there is something particular that we are not doing, I can arrange for you. Our tv’s are currently been replaced by new flat screens LCD’s and this should take place by the end of June12. I look forward to welcoming you back. Kind regards, Ivan Tuohy General Manager

I am part of a 3 man crew on an American Gulfstream Jet. We come to Limerick (approx) 6 times per yr. We used to stay at a less expensive 'chain brand hotel' on Henry Street. But the last 3 times, we stayed at Clarion. When i am not working as a flight attendant, I work at a 4 diamond AAA hotel at home in Providence, RI. So, It's safe to say my standards are quite high. Each time we have stayed here, the staff was fantastic. We love the bartender. He always remembers us by name. We always get a 'welcome back Karen, Gary and Greg! And check in is quick and friendly. You can't beat the views from this place either. Whether it is an evening cocktail or a morning coffee, the deck on the Clarion in Limerick is second to none. The rooms are quite roomy and spotless. If possible, try for a water view on a higher level. My last visit was on floor 11. They are also quite flexible with our frequent request for a late check out. The food in the restaurant is always very good. And the service is outstanding. It is a quick 5 minute walk to downtown. I have been meaning to write a good review for this hotel for over a year now. We are returning to Ireland on April 22nd... and YOU BET WE WILL BE STAYING HERE. Do not hesitate to choose this hotel while in Limerick.

We stay at the Clarion Hotel, Limerick a few weeks ago, it was a lovely relaxing stay. We stayed in the hotel a few years ago and where in a room on the 11th floor which was amazing, the room we stayed in this time was really nice but nothing in comparing to the 11th floor. Bar staff were very helpful as were the restaurant personal.
The only down side is to have to pay for parking which is 8.50 per day and wi-fi isnt very good

Room Tip: 11th floor not 3rd floor

Thank you for your review. Delighted to hear that you had a wonderful stay with us. We are currently in the process of installing 100MB free wifi throughout the hotel. Over the past year, the demand on our system has proven to be outdated due to the high volume of wifi enable units in the marketplace. We recognize the fact that some our guests are now currently using up to 3 wifi units in their hotel bedroom. Our new wifi will be in place by the end of April 12. Looking forward to welcoming you back.
