Just back from a 3 night family break at the Strand Hotel in Limerick.
I've stayed there a number of times since it opened 5 years ago and im delighted to say, it gets better and better every time.
We arrived on one of the hotels busiest weekends with Riverfest and the great Limerick run taking place close to the hotel. The hotels receptionist Liath, had kindly rang me a couple of days beforehand to advise me of the road closures around the hotel and also emailed me a map. Underground parking is available and its only 6 euro a night.
Liath checked us in on the day and was friendly and effecient. Our room wasnt ready, but she immediately got housekeeping on to it, and we took the opportunity to go into the bar, to get something to eat. Bar was very busy, but service was quick and i was soon enjoying a lovely steak sandwich.
By the time we had finished lunch, our room was ready and we got a lovely room on the third floor (310) looking out towards King Johns Castle. Rooms are very well sound proofed, and you cant hear any traffic.
Breakfasts are buffet style with a great selection of everything. Staff are very friendly and accomodating.
Dinner on monday evening in the restaurant was outstanding. Food and service very very good!. One tip, try the famous chicken ceasar salad for yourself!
The leisure facilities are top quality, and the staff seem to keep themselves busy by cleaning it all the time. Very impressed. Our three year old, Vivenne loved it, and is already asking when can we go back!!
All in all a great place to stay. When you have a clean modern hotel with great friendly staff, what more can you ask for?.
We'll definitely be back when our new arrival comes! Thumbs up to Sean Lally and all his staff!
