On arrival we were greeted by very friendly staff who made up feel so welcome. We were very surprised to be ugraded to a suite. The location of the hotel is excellent for touring around the city. Our suite had beautiful views of the ducks on the Abbey River from the balcony. The suite was spacious with 2 tv's, huge bathroom and very luxurious shower. On the first night we dined in the hotel, the quality of the food was excellent. The main selling point for this hotel is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. We will definitely return again.

Room Tip: We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite which exceeded our expectations.

Stayed for one night with my husband to relax.lovely clean modern hotel and staff were very welcoming and accommodating.Hotel was about fifteen minutes walk into city centre,which was fine because the weather was lovely.There was a very good value 4 course meal offer on in the evening for 25 euro each but because we weren't hungry enough we just got a main course which was gorgeous.Paid for movie package which was well worth it with up to date movies. Also got the ten euro room upgrade,rooms were big but cosy and luxurious. Only thing missing was a bath,shower only so specify that on booking if your a bath person!only negative I would say was we paid the ten euro each for breakfast and really wasn't worth it,buffet breakfast wasn't too appetising,if we go again we will probably have breakfast elseware for alot tastier and cheaper. Saying that I would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful, well-designed hotel with very comfortable rooms and a friendly and helpful staff. About 10-15 minutes from the city center, but just steps away from a fantastic pub. Incredibly reasonable price. All in all, a really great value.

The offer we availed of was the Sweet September deal and it seemed like it
was too good to be true, and it wasn't!! The hotel was just stunning, the
food was amazing and the rooms were so spacious and beautiful. We had a meal then in the restaurant as part of the deal and it was
magnificent and the staff were SO helpful and efficient. I've been praising
this hotel and the deal we got with everyone since our stay. I will most
definitely be back! :)

myself and my friends stayed on a package deal, a room with dinner and 100 euro spa deal for 200 euros so 100 hundred each, it was fantastic value, the staff were superb and all very competent at their job and very friendly,the rooms were lovely and the food in the restaurant was second to none, all delicious and really hot with great choice on the menu, not what we were expecting for so little money being paid, totally fab, the barman at the end of the night was very friendly even though under pressure, the only complaint and it is a little one was the restaurant was cold when we arrived but once we asked the air con was changed and it warmed up, the spa was lovely and a super treat for our weekend, we are all chefs and work in the industry but we could not fault the absolute with particular emphasis on the waiting staff and food, totally fab, thank you and well done !

We stayed at the Absolute for 4 nights and found it to be a great hotel at a very good price. The hotel is new so all the facilities are modern and nice. The only small gripe we have is that the bathroom door in the room, which opened directly onto the room, was made entirely of frosted glass. Why is this a bad thing? When someone gets up in the night to use the facilities, the entire room is lit up bright as day. The glass door just wasn't a well thought out decor choice.

The staff at the Absolute were among the best we've ever experienced at any hotel - they were always pleasant and eager to help with whatever we needed. One morning we were up earlier than breakfast hours (for a day tour) so the gentleman working reception (Patrick, I think) literally ran to the kitchen and brought us back a wrapped to-go package of various pastries!

Whenever we go back to Limerick, we'll definitely stay at the Absolute!

Room Tip: 5th floor rooms have the best view.

I stayed here out of curiosity more than anything as I had passed it a number of times and wondered what the inside was like.
I was really impressed from the moment I drove into the car park as the gate lifted, plenty of space and walk-into lobby - a joy!
The staff were genuinely pleasant and pleased to assist and the room was enormous and very trendily kitted out.
I had both dinner and breakfast and the food was great, again served by really lovely staff. I would definitey stay here again and have put it to the top of my places to stay in Limerick where I am about 6 times a year... As an aside, the rate was really competitive and included breakfast without even asking for it....

Room Tip: All the rooms are good here...
