When we arrived at 1:30 in the afternoon, there was no one in the hotel, and no one answered the telephone the sign told us to use to get help. We went back an hour later and still the same story. We finally went to the tourist office and they found someone. At 3:15 a guy showed up and told us breezily that he had been out taking along break, which we should undertand was sensible, because he would be stuck there on the job for the rest of the day. It took about three icy stares from us and a couple of times saying that it was pretty inconvenient for us before it dawned on him that he should say he was sorry. The room was dingy, the bed sagged toward the middle and the pillows felt like they were stuffed with damp newspapers. In the middle of the night (around 4 or 5 am) there was a lot of noise from a group of people on the street--presumably at the pub--shouting and laughing. We did not take breakfast. Later we saw a number of decent-looking B&B's for the same price with breakfast. Ennis is a cute, pelasant town--a good choice to stay if you're flyng out of Shannon. Banner Lodge is not cute or pleasant.
