    Nice old building, well furnished in both public area and bedroom.

    Better attention to the supervising of maintenance work. Our room had taped up wires coming out of the wall at two radiators. In the bathroom there were more taped up wires clearly visible through the grill over the radiator. When you are paying for work to be done you should check that it is done correctly.

    Friendly staff Good breakfast.

    Asked for a non smoking room and the room clearly had been used as a smoking room from the smell and the ash tray in the room. The purpose of our trip was a wedding - there was not enough staff on in the bar to cater with the crowd. There was hige delays getting served bar food and staff "didn't have time to take for the food" had to pay as we were leaving. One couple in our party forgot to pay and were quite embarrased when a staff member ran out after them. Meal at the buffet was awful.

    The location was great for our day trips to The Cliffs and to the Burren. The room was very comfortable, and the food in the pub was excellent. I would visit again and would recommend the Old Ground Hotel to others.

    Parking was a bit challenging.

    The Poets Corner bar / restaurant is fantastic and is reason enough to stay at this hotel. I've stayed here for 1 week and now I intend to stay here for the next 7 weeks of my business trip.

    The front desk staff are only ok. The bar / restaurant staff are fantastic.

    We got an upgrade and suite was absolutely gorgeous. Will definitely use Booked.net again. Receptionist was most friendly and helpful. We had a lovely night.

    Last time we stayed in Old Ground our room was really awful, small,dark and someone had been smoking in the room. Still waiting (since last year) for reply from the Manager. I booked directly with hotel (should have used Booked.net !!)

    I was given a lovely room for my stay .it was big and a smokeing room which is rare now.

    The hotel has a lovely old style to it with relaxing couches, great irish music in the bar&good residents bar service which is so difficult to find nowadays.

    My booking confirmed that our room would have a double and a single bed which it did not. This I found was really annoying and I wasn't even advised of this on checking in. However I do have to say we did get a lovely room with a generous size bed but this was not what I had based my booking on.

    Lovely mansion house, beautifully furnished in old style, room was spacious, bed was absolutely great :) There was an espresso machine in the room! Downstairs bar had live music. Enough parking space. Excellent location in the heart of Ennis; what an awesome town! We had a great stay; just wish we could have stayed there longer.

    No breakfast included in room price and it was a bit expensive so decided to eat out. Other than that, nothing to complain :)
