It is very central,right in the centre of town. We dined in The Town Hall restaurant which is part of the hotel, there was also a choice of two...

The Old Ground has a veritable host of reasons to be proud of itself and it is entirely evident throughout. The hotel from reception to rooms, to each of it's two restaurants and pub is a 10 in my opinion. I wasn't able to adjust the heat one day, housekeeping was there before I got to the room after asking...

Location: highly convenient. Parking: ample; we came in late during many nights when the dining room was packed for one function or another and always managed to find a space, though sometimes a shoehorn was a necessity. Room: comfortable; very nice bathroom. Breakfast: the best we had in Irish hotels, and many outside this country. Internet: can be a problem...

For the first leg of our Irish journey, we picked the Old Ground Hotel as our lodging, in Ennis Ireland. While even our GPS was challenged to find the parking lot for the hotel, once we arrived, we knew we made a great choice. The grounds outside reception were lovely, and so very green in the light misty rain. There...

This is a quiet hidden gem in the charming town of Enis. The staff is attentive and the food is very good. A great stop on your travels through Ireland. Find your way to a pub for a Guiness and Irish music.

Stayed here May bank holiday weekend. Fabulous hotel. Room decorated to the highest standard. Staff were all really friendly. Location right in the middle of the town. Plenty of parking. The only thing I faulted was that the hotel bar was so busy, it was hard to get a seat. However this is a good complaint as they are obviously...

Our first two nights in Ireland. We stayed here on a recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed. We had an extra large suite thanks to our travel agent letting them know we were celebrating an anniversary. From check in to check out service was remarkable. Our favorite part was The Poets Corner pub, through a door off the...
