Elegant and classy Sep 27, 2014
We had a reservation at the Old Ground Hotel in Ennis, and arrived just after dark. I was fortunate to get the last spot in a row of free parking spaces, directly across from the hotel. The ivy covered building looks charming and old fashioned from the front, but is very modern and updated inside. They have a fireplace and a nice sitting area with comfortable chairs, right in the main lobby. It was a bustle of activity when we checked in, and the pub on the main level was full and boisterous with traditional Irish music playing. Check in was quick and easy, and we went straight to our rooms to drop off our bags. The room was large and clean, with two large beds. Adjacent to the bed was a very large armoire, with plenty of hangers for our clothes, and a shelf big enough to fit my suitcase. The bathroom was larger than I expected as well, and very clean. They also have free WiFi, which is always good. Overall, this was the nicest room we had stayed in, to this point on the trip. We unpacked, and went downstairs to the pub to have a drink while waiting for dinner. The concierge had made us a reservation at the restaurant next door, but to be honest, I don't know if it was part of the hotel, or it's own separate entity.. but both the meal and service were excellent! Overall, we had a great experience here, and I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Ennis.

Lovely Sep 05, 2013
My first impression of this hotel is "WOW". It is like a big mansion / private resident with beautiful garden setting located right opposite the church. We were a little confused with the entrance though, at first we went into the bar, the the other side was the restaurant. We had to asked for direction to check in. Apparently it was on the other side of the bar with a huge gate. I think it must have been a private resident!

The reception area has a cozy waiting area. The reception staff told us we should park our car inside the hotel compound ( we parked by the church as we could not find the entrance of this hotel)

Our room was clean and in good size. finally, we had a real king size bed that was comfortable!

Bathroom was huge with a bathtub and stand up shower, again with the half glass door by the tub, I could not keep the floor dry after my shower.

The car park and WiFi was complementary.

Beautiful Hotel Oct 24, 2009
Having been to Ennis a few times I had always wanted to say in this hotel. I thought that it would be very expensive to stay here, by looking at all the plush furnishing that it has.To my surprise they offered a weekend break with dinner on one night for 99 euros per person. The room being very plush had a super king size bed, tv, stereo, trouser press, tea and coffee making facilities, what more can you ask for!

Brekfast was excellent,with the full irish being hot, not just warm. Our evening meal again was first class, silver service. They have a lovely bar in the hotel called Poets Corner, it has amazing irish coffee served here as well as creamy Guinness, with live Irish music at the weekends.

Ennis town is great, lots of pubs and bars to visit, all very good with excellent food and music. Lots of nice boutique style shops to browse in, as well as the Dunnes department shop. Love this place, and will go back again and again.
