Feeling lucky with our parking space as parking is sometimes difficult to find here we took the train to Galway and Limerick on consecutive days and enjoyed both cities. We had a fabulous meal in...

This is my favourite hotel in Ennis, amazing bedrooms, huge wet room, great service from the staff. Pub is brilliant with a great choice on the menu. Just down the road another a great pub, all offering brilliant entertainment and in typical Irish style. Highly recommend staying here, worth every cent, you won't be disappointed.

My room was enormous and comfortable, the staff were more than accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, in fact, it is the location that you want when you are in Ennis. Good pub downstairs with food, but for an excellent meal, try the restaurant next door that they own as well.
