Stayed for one night before flying home from Shannon airport. Check in was probably the quickest and smoothest we have ever experienced in a hotel. The room was well equipped and comfortable. We had a nice comfortable stay with a quite nights sleep.

Central but not great
OK hotel but not great value for money. Very central. No breakfast included in rate which was quite expensive. Hotel a little tired and in need of some care.
