We stayed in this hotel for 1 night as the rugby world cup match was being held in Limerick that night. We arrived in the afternoon and there was plenty of parking in the underground car park, and were then checked in swiftly by a friendly receptionist. The room was spacious and clean, had a double and 2 single beds. There was also facilities for making a hot drink, and iron, TV and a large bathroom with both bath and shower.
We also used the swimming pool which had friendly staff. The water was nice and warm and had a third of the area for swimming only and the rest for general pool usage. The sauna and steam room were small, but people only used them for 5 minutes or so meaning that there wasn't long to wait before they became vacant. They were also at a nice temperature for working up a sweat after a nice swim.
The location is a good way out of the city centre, reception said about €12 in a taxi each way but cannot say as we were in the car. There is a couple of supermarkets very close if you need to bring in some provisions. The location is also opposite a gypsy camp which was ok as there wasn't any noise, plus it's not every day that you see a man walking his horse and a goat on the pavement in Ireland!!
After the match we had a couple of pints in the bar. Although we found the staff ok, we were surprised to hear one member of staff take offence when a big group of people tried to move 2 tables together so they could sit together and went over to tell them off as if it was his own personal kingdom, then the other barman was heard to curse (FFS) when asked by the other to make some sandwiches which the group had purchased, sorry for making you work!!
Next morning we had an excellent breakfast with a great choice of hot and cold food. It was a help yourself buffet with the hot food, and the scrambled egg was cooked to perfection. The orange juice was also nice. On returning to the room I had a nice bath, but wasn't able to drain the water as the plug dial wasn't working. I did try to use a spoon but it wouldn't work. I did apologise to reception so hopefully that problem will have been solved.
In summary, a comfortable stay, nice facilities, good breakfast and we have a few tales to tell!! Positives far outweighed the negatives and we would return.
