I cannot fault Michael and his wife- they were very welcoming and did all to help us enjoy our stay. The location of B&B is good, just 5 mins fdrive rom town centre and there's ample parking. It is an established B&B, at least 30 years old and it shows. The room, though spotless looked tired and dull. Probably due to poor isolation and glazing, i thought it also felt damp and musty but I guess you get what you pay for so. Overall it's a good budget option.

We arrived at the Clifton House at the end of a very long day -- we had suffered a flat tire on the way from Galway, and though the gas station attendents couldn't have been nicer while helping us fix it, we still didn't reach Limerick until nearly 9 p.m. Thankfully, the owners of the B&B were extremely understanding: initially, we called around 7 p.m. to say we were running late and we were told not to worry about it all. And then, when we finally did arrive, we were met with a smile a very kind word. It was just what we needed.

The Clifton House itself is rather large and featured a spacious dining area with big windows (also, the traditional Irish breakfast was tasty). Our room was also large: it actually had two beds (one double, one single), a big bathroom, a desk, etc. It was extremely cozy in feel, and we enjoyed that it felt like it had some history. In other words, it's not a new place, and it probably hasn't been renovated in a while, but it was hardly worn-down. It didn't feel old at all, just well-loved.

The Clifton House is about a 15-20 minute easy walk into Limerick's city center for all the pubs and restaurants, plus there's plenty of free parking onsite. And again, above all, we were just touched by how kind the owners were: they were happy to supply restaurant recommendations for dinner as well as delightful conversation at breakfast the next morning. We would happily stay here again.

Clifton House is conveniently located on the main road between Shannon Airport and Limerick with reasonably priced bus service nearby. It's a comfortable walk into the city center and in the other direction there are mini-markets, takeaways, and other shopping, too.

Very friendly and helpful hosts. Great breakfast. Nice comfortable room.

Just got back from a family visit to Limerick,Ireland where we stayed at our favorite B&B,Clifton House.
Proprietors Michael and Mary Powell accorded us the usual warm welcome that we've come to appreciate after several visits there.
Highly recommended.

We had an enjoyable night's stay at the Clifton House. The only reason I give it an "above average" rather than an "excellent" is because we stayed in a couple of very stellar B&Bs on our trip, and the Clifton was just barely not as great as some others. But it was clean, comfortable, and a good price. I'm not sure how convenient it is to downtown Limerick because we were too exhausted to venture farther away than the restaurant across the street. I would definitely stay here again.
