Good points: very nice looking bar, restaurant and function rooms. Bad points: poor hygiene standards and upkeep of the hotel. Our first room was just off reception and the noise levels were ridiculous. There was also a very obvious stained hand print on the ceiling in the bathroom (looked like blood) and the paint was peeling off the wall in...

This hotel is in a great location about five minutes from Shannon airport and 10 minutes from Bunratty Castle. There is a mall right across the street. The hotel is older but much of it has been updated without losing the old Irish charm. Wifi worked well and electric sockets were easily accessable to charge phones, laptops, etc. The best...

My grandson and I stayed at the Oakwood Hotel in Shannon the night prior to our departure from Ireland. I'm not sure what we were expecting, but we were certainly not expecting the five star service and facility that we encountered.

We stayed at this hotel for one night since we were flying out the next day out of Shannon. The location was great and very convenient. The hotel on the inside and outside is beautiful.

Would highly recommend this revamped restaurant. They used to have a carvery but now have a waiter/waitress service which is much nicer. The food is fabulous fresh tasty and good portions. Congrats to the pastry chef the lemon meringue was best I've ever had. Prices not bad but always room for improvement though but definitely thumbs up
