My colleagues and I stayed in this hotel for more than two months (midOctober-November-December 2013) while being in Shannon on a business trip.
The hotel is absolutely lovely with its antique interior and old-fashioned decorations! My room was located on the ground floor, rather big and very cosy :)
All the stuff were very friendly, helpful and nice, loved them! And what's more, I got a lovely present for Christmas - a box of chocolates and a greeting card signed by all guys working there! That was so sweet! And the Christmas dinner was amazing!
The food was very tasty, though I had only B&B, I often went to the hotel restaurant after work to have dinner there.
There's also a gym, a room with computers and printers, some meeting rooms in the hotel.
What was also very important, I never had any problems with the Internet there: good wi-fi connection in the room.
All the rooms have either an air conditioner or a radiator (which was very useful in winter).
The only disadvantages were two different taps for cold and hot water in the sink in the bathroom, and no fridge in the room, though there was a kettle.
There's a big shopping centre SkyCourt nearby, a Lidl supermarket, a petrol station, a bus stop, a McDonald's cafe, and a beauty salon Beaty Rooms... So everything one might need for living :)
In general, I would recommend staying in this hotel, you will surely enjoy it. A very charming and comfortable place!
