“Consistently Good”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

I've stayed here on business a few times now and it has always been consistent. The hotel lobby is bright and airy and the staff are friendly and efficent. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well laid out. I love the view of the majestic Shannon from the rooms, it never fails to hit me every time I walk in. I have mixed feelings about the bar. It's a typical hotel bar. Pints aren't great and it's not somewhere i'd want to hang around for too long. That said, the outside area overlooking the river is beautiful and peaceful and I could sit there all day with a beer and a good book on a warm Summers day. I've never eaten lunch or dinner there but the bar menu looked good with plenty to choose from. Breakfast is awful. Cheap ingredients, left out to shrivel and dry. Last time I actually skipped breakfast as i couldn't finish it the day before. Not because there was too much but because it was such poor quality. Aside from this though it's a lovely hotel and great value. The view from the rooms are the USP for me, especially at night when it's lit up. Would I stay here on business ? In a heart beat. Would I stay here for a few days on holiday ? Probably not. Breakfast would be a deal breaker. Overall a good hotel though and i've always enjoyed my stay.

Room Tip: It's one of the joys of this hotel. All rooms have a great view.

We had a one night stay here but I have to compliment this hotel on running such an excellent establishment. We received excellent service & attention. The meal was superb as was the breakfast even though we were late arrivals. Food was still fresh & plentiful. The rooms were spotless, comfortable & full of all the necessities. Cannot fault the professionalism of every single staff member we encountered & their friendliness & helpfulness. Our party was made most welcome & I cannot recommend this establishment highly enough. The prices we paid were also competitive so fantastic value for money. Definitely a gem of the city

Thank you for your 5 star review. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed your weekend break with us recently and in particular the views from the hotel. All of our rooms have panoramic views over the River Shannon and the views from the 14th floor are striking, all of our rooms also have their own in-room controlled air-conditioning unit, I’m glad this helped a little with the sunburn. I look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards, Laura McNamara, Front of House Manager

Love the room at the Clarion Hotel Limerick. The beds were comfy, there were extra pillows, the shower was great and the licorice scented body wash was a nice change. This hotel made me feel like I was on vacation instead of just spending the night.

Stayed two nights late June and were very happy with our stay.

Receptionist seemed like she was new to the job but was pleasant.

Booked a superior double and were given a triple bedded room, so we had a big room but a lot of space taken up by beds. But the room was clean and the view unreal. Only let down was that a small brown envelope and a magazine were left by the last guest on the counter top and housekeeping really over looked them. This wouldn't bother me at all but you would have to wonder what else was missed??

Food in the bar was good on two occasions, I couldn't say the same for the room service as it was lukewarm.

Bar staff were very friendly especially Aoife who is a credit to the hotel. We spent a lot of time there watching the World Cup and they were very attentive and welcoming. We would of liked some on site entertainment the Saturday evening but were told the dj who usually plays had cancelled last minute.

Leisure facilities were nice and quiet both times we used them which was lovely and exactly the atmosphere we wanted.

Very reasonably priced hotel in a good location and I would definitely recommend.

We booked this room for 1 night after a flight from the states to Shannon. Hotel room was ready early and they let us check in. Parking is right across the street in a parking garage. you pay 8.5 Euros for parking, with in and out privileges, just ask at the desk for a parking ticket. The rooms are very large as we were on the 9th floor in a triple. Great views of the river and while in the docks area of town, easy enough to walk to some shopping and along the river. Worth the money for the cleanliness of the room and comfort of the beds after a long trip! Perfect for a couple days exploring the region.

Room Tip: The higher floors have the best views

Enjoyed our room, and the staff at the bar were great. But the robotic women at the reception desk were rude and oblivious, particularly the heavily made up dark haired one on duty during the late afternoon. The hotel is located in a not very appealing part of town. Didn't find any Irish friendliness here!
