My goodness, the outside of the building is a total transformation. The now exposed stonework is fantastic. Please don't plaster it again. Excited also about the new life and absolute potential. My goodness, does mountshannon need it. Bring it on lovely people's of the pipers. An already loyal customer of your inn down the road towards Killaloe

Got a room here for one of our party as our holiday home beds were so uncomfortable. Although the beds in the hotel were better, the room had a pronounced damp smell and so the person still had a bad nights sleep! Other rooms may be better - it may be that this twin room was relatively infrequently used and...

have been in here quite a bit and I have to say the food has always been excellent. The staff are friendly and very welcoming and the hotel itself has a peaceful and quiet atmosphere. The menu caters for snacks,dinners and dessert. I can recommend the chocolate and orange cheesecake when its on the menu.

Great old building, on the main road, so was easy to find. Parking around the back, which was great. The room had old furniture, but it was fine, because it was in keeping with the rest of the building and ambiance. The bed was comfortable, and clean. We went into the bar, which got really busy as the night wore...

Stopped at this pub and restaurant for lunch during a tour of east clare. The pub and restaurant was spotlessly clean and we'll kept. The staff were very curtious and nice. The food was very nice also, reasonably enough priced as well.

Stopped in here and had dinner while watching the rugby world cup with the local patrons. It was really fun. It is a nice little pub that is exactly what you imagine when thinking local Irish pub. The meals were great. I had roast beef and it was one of the best meals I have had in Ireland. Hearty home...

I didn't stay in the Mountshannon Hotel. We were staying in the Lakeshore Holiday homes nearby. We dropped in for lunch one day. Toasties and chips with salad were just what was needed! We also had a couple of drinks there. Nice atmosphere in the bar. Friendly staff and good Guinness. Trad session on Friday nights.

We went to mix with the tourists and locals at this hotel/bar. It was very active and the awesome loan bartender was kept hopping. She was friendly and efficient. It was a Saturday night, so lots of laughing and visiting going on, It was a fairly warm evening, so even the outside picnic tables were full. We didn't eat a...
