“excellent boutique hotel beside the rive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2011

I stayed for one night. The staff were very friendly and the room clean and comfortable. Breakfast was cooked fresh to my order in the morning. The Hotel is situation right beside a bridge over a picturesque river. Very good experience

While the setiing of the restuarant is lovely my problem was with the food and in particular the prices. Completly outrages prices for average food. For example a bowl of chowder is €10.50!!! This is crazy. You wouldn't expect to pay this in dublin city centre. There prices need to match the location, market and quality.

Room Tip: Food overpriced and only average

The hotel is well run and in a quiet location. Right on the banks of the Shannon. Good walks around the canals and river.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2008

Booked a boating holiday down the Shannon. Started in Carrick On Shannon, after the 2nd night really felt that sleeping on a boat was not for me. So after a great meal in Keenans, saw that they had a hotel. Well, left my son's and friends on the boat and headed back to Hotel, booked myself in for the night. What a great relief, the decor was top class, the bed was most comfortable (especially after the facilities on the boat) and the shower facilities great. Slept like a lamb!

So I have come to the conclusion that for me, boating is great the scenary fantastic, and the hotels along the Shannon are indeed top class. After a tiring day up and down locks, better to put your head on a 1st class pillow....on shore.
