Stayed here a few times by myself and also with my children. Staff are very friendly and the Mcgettigans bar/restaurant downstairs is lovely. It's located within easy walking distance of all shops and pubs and has a lovely view over the river.

We booked 3 rooms for my friends birthday. The hotel is simply fantastic! The rooms were nice and exactly what we needed for our night out! Parking was 7.50€ but car was completely safe! The breakfast was the highlight.... Simply beautiful!

FIRST OFF : Ignore all the negative comments about this place!! I have stayed in ALOT of different hotels all over the world. (I haven't reviewed them all yet but be patient I am working on it lol.) The negative comments for this hotel are ridiculous. I don't think these people stayed in the same hotel because this is a great hotel. also, if you want to stay at the overly sanitized and overly priced ritz carlton then go ahead. If you want local flavor and charm, people who care and hard working people , then stay here. I digress. STAFF: We did an overnight flight and got into this hotel at approximately nine am? ish? which as we all know is WAAAAy too early to get into your room at any hotel. So I figured I would ask anyway. The front desk guy was so nice and he really tried but he couldn't find anything open. I was not terrifically happy but I know what the deal is. So I went outside got into my car and would you believe my rental car would not start!?!?!? So as I am sitting outside the building , completely exhausted, ringing up the rental car company , the front desk guy comes running outside and says "ma'am I found a room for you"!! and just like that we were able to check into our room almost five hours early !! How cool is that? My daughters and I were so grateful to be able to shower and rest while we waited for the rental car company to exchange our car. That was our first impression of this hotel. That front desk clerk should be rewarded. Every single front desk person and staff, including the cleaning staff that we encountered were categorically extremely kind to us. The late night front desk clerk helped us find food after hours and even let us use the phone. I just can't really say enough about the staff. What a fun group. Don't forget that they validate parking for you at the front desk so when you check in be sure to get the parking garage stamped before you leave. The parking garage is a separate issue, you pay 7.50 euro for overnight parking. You can go in and out but you pay each time. we basically spent the entire day out and only checked in late at night then left early each day. Not a big deal, but remember to get the ticket stamped inside before you leave and you can only pay on level one of the garage. LOCATION: What a great location !!! It is right near the water and is walking distance to probably a dozen or so really really great pubs. (I will review them separately) Also there is a dunnes store probably two blocks away!! It is a complete grocery store (sort of similar to america's target store) so if you forget anything or need anything you can just run to dunnes. The city itself is centrally located and/or approx an hours drive to TONS of super cool and important and magical destinations in Ireland including but not limited to: The Cliffs of Moher, Blarney Castle, Cork, Connemara Park, Coillte Forest.... you get the picture. OVERALL CONDITION OF THE HOTEL: I have never stayed in this particular hotel before so I can't tell you if it has improved or not. But i can tell you that maintaining older buildings , particularly ones of massive size, is not an easy task. You essentially finish one particular project or group of projects and something else needs to be fixed or finished. Not to mention ongoing events that have to be attended to and day to day hosting of guests. I can tell the effort is being made. While we were there , there was painting men in the hallways, there was really nice well kept crown moulding in our room and just little things that i can tell someone cares about how it looks. Yes there are typical aspects of wear and tear . Some things that you see in older hotels. But nothing significant and more importantly - nothing that will or should affect the overall stay. Please note that your power MIGHT go out in your room. It is only a fuse and you just ring the front desk and they fix it straight away. This is not a crisis and I'm sure a result of some older wiring but so what? The beds are clean and the hotel is clean and they are making the effort at upkeep. My only minor complaint: more towels, I did ask for them and did receive them, but I hate bothering the cleaning staff. I would prefer bar soap and bottles of shampoo as opposed to the group squirt bottles. Not a big deal, just a suggestion. Oh and SUPER important note to the manager: I would put those stick on treads in the bathtubs instead of offering a bath mat for the tub. The tub is dangerously slippery and the way its shaped you just wipe out .... ask me how i know this.... I am just concerned because if an elderly person slips like i did in the tub it would have been a broken hip for sure. They have treads you can stick directly onto the tub surface. Just a heads up on that. WIFI: I saw complaints about the wifi: we never encountered any wifi issues. So idk what they are talking about. I think I have covered about everything. I would definitely come back and stay at this particular hotel again . The world for "welcome" in ireland is "failte". I definitely felt that here. Much love. Collapse
Great cheep night away.

Stayed here for a short city break. We had an updated room with a river view. the room was so new it had the new carpet smell. Ate in the bar and the food was ok for bar food. Small observation is that people were travelling in the lifts with bags of food shopping. Think the upper floors are being used for housing. This is no problem as everyone deserves somewhere to sleep ! would definitely stay again in the same room. Collapse
Stayed here on business trip

I loved my 3 night stay here. Modern, clean, comfortable. Very pleasant and professional staff. Convenient location close to the city centre. If I ever am visiting Limerick again I will definitely be checking in here.
