Thank you for visiting and for sharing such a positive review. We continue to choose furnishings and decorative touches that our guests really enjoy - a sleep on those pillow top beds is sheer heaven and we have received many compliments on the comfy new couches. I hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you soon again.

The staff is superior at the Old Ground. they are quick, efficient and attentive. The public spaces in the lobby are so relaxing but the hotel has always been full when I've stayed there so I've never gotten to take advantage of the lobby area. Rooms are clean and comfortable. One example of attentiveness was that one of our guests...

Staying at the Old Ground Hotel is like taking a step back in time. So elegant and beautifully decorated. Beds were very comfortable, breakfast delish, staff helpful, perfect for walking to downtown restaurants and easy access to main roads for traveling to other destinations. We would stay here again if we get the opportunity to travel to Ireland again!

After a rain soaked journey, the sat nav wound us through the cobbled streets of Ennis to our destination. Having checked in the picturesque hotel, we were greeted by the sight of a doorway between the fire escape & the corridor - small room? We did not expect the glorious accommodation that lay ahead. The town was a sunny delight...
