“Excellent hotel, would go back in a heartbeat”
Reviewed 6 April 2011

We checked in on friday afternoon, our room was not ready so we had a 45minute wait. During this time the manager spoke to us and apologised for the delay, and the receptionist was very polite and organised some afternoon tea free of charge to be bought to the lobby for us, lovely touch and made the wait worth it! We stayed in a suite room 216 and it was outstanding, by far the best quality room we have ever had the pleasure of staying in, the facilities and cleanliness and the glass balcony overlooking limerick city was superb. The service and staff are an absolute credit to the hotel, they were very helpful and curtious at all times. The hotel is a stones throw from the city and shopping is excellent, we ate in various restaurants but the best by far was Texas Steakhouse, but be warned book in advance it is worth it to avoid disappointment. Bar wise we would recommend Nancy Blakes and Smyths which is just across the road. our hotel room had a fridge so we bought some wine to have in the room, and there is also an ice machine on every floor by the lifts. Parking is great its on -2 in the lift and there is a charge of 5euro per night but it is secure and convenient. We ate in the hotel bar Saturday lunch time and the food was fab! We also had access to the pool facilities which were top class. We will definately be taking a trip back to this hotel, excellent all round :)

We pitched up in Limerick at 5.30 on St.Patrick's Day, the Tourist Information Centre was closed and we had nowhere to stay.
Turning around, we saw the Limerick Strand on the other side of the bridge so went over for a closer look.
On entering we thought it would be a very expensive hotel to stay in but went to reception to ask about vacancies/prices. The young lady on reception was super efficient and polite and to out astonishment a double room and breakfst set us back the princely sum of 90 euro!
The room was large, clean, comfortable and well appointed - the bathroom was lovely and the view over the Shannon beautiful!
Special mention for Warren the Food & Beverage manager who was extremely personable and helpful.
Lovely hotel, highly recommend

The Limerick Strand hotel is centrally located and a great home base for exploring many Ireland locations. This somewhat upscale hotel has a Scandinavian feel (room style and decor) with spacious rooms and most conveniences. Room rates during our stay were very reasonable. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is conveniently located on the River Shannon very close to the heart of the city.

The only issue we had was broken items in our room. Specifically, a light fixture, toilet, and no cold water in the bathtub. We asked to have them repaired but they were not. Having said this, we would stay there again.

Great Hotel, Great Staff, Great location but the food is BEYOND Extraordinarily expensive. do NOT arrive hungry or you'll enbd paying as much for a meal as you did for a room if not more i.e. room €30 a BURGER called some outlandish name but at the end of the day a burger is a burger €16.50.
You need to address this people of the hotel. Every other aspect would make me go back but that one woul dmake look elsewhere

We decided to go to Limerick at the last minute and so walked into the hotel without a booking. We got a double room for EUR70 which we thought was quite reasonable. The room was spacious, clean and well appointed.

It was in a good location if one cared to stroll around Limerick, just opposite the city and a pleasant walk across the bridge.

We ate in the restaurant where we received excellent food and service.

Good for quick visits to Limerick or business travellers.

Rooms spacious and comfortable but unfortunately extremely hot I had to sleep with windows open and even then it was uncomfortably hot. Could not control the temperature on the bath tap and the water was boiling and the shower was not much better the next morning. However apart from that everything was good with this hotel. Had room service to my room that evening and it was very nice and I was not waiting long at all. Breakfast the next morning was great with plenty of choice. The staff were extremely helpful. The location is perfect away from the hustle and bustle of the city but just a short walk across Sarsfields bridge to the shops, nightlife etc. All in all I would consider this a very nice hotel and would definitely stay here again.

Been staying two to three times a year I'n the strand for the past three years. At the start it was new modern clean with good service. The last couple of stays have seen poor duty management, lack lustre service, poor house keeping and general lack of care. I have "mislaid" valuable items on two stays with poor followup from duty management although deputy general manager did contact me on several occasions after I left.
Many times I left a glass or cup down on reception area to return 12 hours and it still be there. Unfortunate as is a beautiful building and location .
