Great rooms, gre­at food and friendly service in a really stunning hotel situated on a bend on the Abbey River in Limerick City.­ Here in the Medieval Quarter of Limerick we are only minutes walk away from King Johns Castle and the Hunt Museum, not to mention the amazing Milk Market with its artisan producers. The Absolute Hotel Limerick is the perfect base from which to get the best out of the city­ be it business or pleasure.

I was quite tired and frustrated when I got to the hotel but when I saw my room I knew my trip is going to be good. The room was modern, cosy, and beautiful. A surprise was waiting for me at breakfast next morning. I ate the best bacon I’ve ever had, and black budding was almost

hi there - so in order to guarantee that the credit card can take any additional charges we need to pre authorise. if we do not and you spend additionally in the hotel there is no guarantee the card will accept the payment. No problem to pay cash on departure but you will have to present your card for pre authorisation on arrival to guarantee funds availability. Then when you pay in cash the bank with release the unused pre authorisation. regards DH

Hi There We will always try to facilitate early check in but at the moment we are pretty much full most nights so we are very dependant upon what time guests leave and how quick we can turn the rooms around. Regarding the day trips there are lots of options so the best thing is to email sandra at the desk ( i cant include emails on this) she will be able to help guide you dependant on what you are interested in. I'll send this to her so she'll be expecting. DH
