We chose the Strand Hotel as we were looking for a spa hotel in a good enough location to travel around County Clare. The hotel is in fact conveniently located in the heart of Limerick, by the River Shannon, just a 5 mins' drive from the main road, and an hour from the Cliffs of Moher and the Rock of Cashel.
We had an extremely pleasant stay. The room was big, clean and bright and I loved the colour and overall interiors too. The bathroom was new and included both a bath and a shower.
There is a handy lift that connects the floors (the 2nd in our case) with the spa, pool and gym which are located on -2. The use of all the facilities is free for hotel guests and it is exactly what you need at the end of a day spent walking by the cliffs.
The buffet breakfast at the River Restaurant is very good and you can choose from all sorts of fruits, cereals, jams, honeys, breads, yogurts or you could go for a full Irish breakfast.
All staff, both at reception and the restaurant, were extremely friendly and helpful.
If you are planning on visiting the west/southern part of County Clare and the nearby Counties and you are looking for a great value for money, I highly recommend staying at the Strand.
