“Coming Home”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

Walking into the old hotel my husband and I knew that this experience would be memorable. The staff welcomed us with smiles, a lovely comfortable room and an invitation for tea beside the lobby fireplace. Our room was spacious, quiet and deliciously tactile, from the linens and towels to the chairs and window seat. The good bedside lights made for perfect reading and a hot shower topped off a nicely appointed room. Breakfast was beautifully served, hot and delicious in the dining room, with linens and crystal. And then the pub awaited us just down the hall. The Poet's Corner has seating in nooks with library style wood and antiques, lunches are excellent and served quickly and pleasantly, and in the evening it is lively, bustling and music filled....some people even played the Irish spoons for us over a brimming Guinness....it just doesn't get better than this.

We stayed here for 2 night's and didnt want to leave! We had one evening meal with our package and what a meal! So tasty and a big portion. We ate in the bar on the 2nd night and we weren't disappointed. Breakfast on both mornings was lovely. The staff were the friendliest and most helpful we have come across. The room was huge and comfortable. The hotel is in a perfect location. Cant wait to go back again soon. Thanks old ground hotel for a super weekend :)

We flew into Shannon to begin our 18 day drive around Ireland. A quick drive to Ennis to the hotel. We were so happy that we picked this property from our research. It was clean organized, hot showers, large comfy bed in the center of everything. Close to the Burren, Cliffs of Moher and all over the western coast. We ate 3 out of 4 nights in the pub. The Poets Corner pub was grand the servers lovely and the food great tasting and looking good. Local music and people made the pub a great end to exploring. One night we began talking to a nice young couple from Cobh and listen to music and a story teller then conversed and enjoyed pints top 4 a.m. A better intro to my greats home could not of been hoped for.

We stayed at the Old Ground Hotel Ennis for a three night stay on the 11th November, to be honest I hadnt heard of the hotel before but when I had it booked anyone that I mentioned it to raved about the place and they were right. The hotel is perfectly located right in the middle of the town, we had a lovely room, bed so comfortable, modern bathroom and the hotel had noted that it was our wedding anniversary and had put a fruit basket with a lovely note on arrival. Breakfast was excellent each morning, great selection of cereals, fruit, youghurt, scones & pastries and you also have the cooked breakfast from the kitchen. We ate in the the poets corner one evening and had lunch there another day both were really nice, bar has a nice atmosphere and was very busy. We had one dinner included and we had this on our final night in the Townhall restaurant - it was outstanding. The one thing I have to mention was the staff, from the first moment we arrived we received a warm welcome from reception, staff in all areas, bar, restaurant & accommodation were all so warm friendly and helpful with any request, the Old Ground Hotel really have a wonderful team. I would recommend this hotel to anyone it is the perfect location for touring around Clare.

We had a beautiful room with its own conservatory! Very luxurious bedding and nice seating area as well. The only drawback was the single elevator which was monopolized by a tour group leaving as we were trying to get down to breakfast.
