My husband and I took our honeymoon in Ireland, and Absolute Hotel was the first place we stayed. The room was super clean, spacious, covered with modern decor, and the staff was so friendly! We also loved that it was within walking distance of all the places we wanted to see. The one and only complaint I have is that our shower drained so slow that you had to stop halfway through bathing to let it drain to prevent an overflow. That was a small problem, though, and we were very pleased with our stay here!

We recently stayed at Absolute Hotel when we arrived in Ireland for our holiday. Coming from the U.S., we arrived in Shannon very early in the morning. We drove to the hotel and the let us park our car so we could walk around Limerick. I felt as if I were entering a spa when we walked into the lovely modern room. After all of our travelling, and touring about Limerick, the relaxing room was a welcomed sight! Breakfast was great and the service was superb. I would definitely stay here again the next time I come to Ireland.

Absolute Hotel's shiny exterior covered over some rather average rooms. The hotel overlooked some very basic details about guest comforts. The beds were average at best. My room was right next to the road and the windows were poor resulting in a noisy room.

So first off sorry we let you down. We really try to live up to the great surroundings of the hotel but i can see on this occasion we failed.
I can see your points in your review but if you could give any feedback on the overlooked basic details and comforts then i'll take them on board and change what i can.
I'd also be grateful for any specific feedback on the beds as they are within lifespan and if we ever find an issue with one then we would replace immediately.
One side of the hotel does overlook the road (the other is much quieter and river side). We do have double glazing and if we find any window seal that is gone we address immediately. There is a latch slit that can be open on the window instead of fully opening that lets air in and i have to assume it was open leaving the noise in. If it was not the case I then the double glazing did not do a good enough job.
I am disappointed when we let people down but we try to address the issues raised and move on. i am happy to discuss anything further should you wish. i want to put things right
regards
Donnacha Hurley

I have to say we were looked after fantastically by the hotel.
They really did go above and beyond for us.
We were a large corporate booking of 100 guests and we were tended to at every beck and call.
Special shout out to Michelle at front desk, an absolute star.
Gorgeous rooms, great brekkie = very happy campers

We stayed here for one night at a very reasonable price. It is just a short walk into the city centre though we took a taxi as it was cold and rainy when we stayed. The room was beautiful and extremely comfortable with a nice view of the river. It was also very clean and modern. The only criticism we had was the frosted glass door of the bathroom. While it was in keeping with the style of the room we found it slightly uncomfortable that you could make out the silhouette of the person occupying the bathroom. The staff were fairly pleasant though the bartenders seemed more interested in chatting to each other than serving us. However, they do make some nice cocktails. The staff at breakfast were much more pleasant. Overall, it's a beautiful hotel though maybe the customer care could be tweaked a bit. I would stay here again, however.
