This is an excellent hotel in the perfect location when visiting the South West of Ireland. It's centrally located in Ennis which is no more than 45 minutes from all the sites. The reception staff are warm & friendly. The rooms are large with comfortable beds, sitting room, ensuite shower with a proper power shower, tea/coffee making facilities, trouser press, iron and hair dryer in the room. The rooms are not air conditioned but a fan was provided promptly. Breakfast is continental or cooked or both and the full Irish is grilled with a choice of poached, scrambled or fried eggs. There's also a grilled plaice option which I found surprisingly light & tasty as a breakfast. There are two restaurant options in the hotel. The O'Brien Room would best be described as modern Irish and The Town Hall is more fusion food. We tried both and the food was excellent. There's also excellent Traditional Music sessions in the bar from Thursday to Sunday nights. All that coupled with the relaxing residents areas on the ground floor means you wouldn't need to leave the hotel at all. The bar/restaurant service was a little scatty but in the overall scheme of things, this was a very minor point.
