TravelPod Member ReviewsAbsolute Hotel Limerick
This was a great hotel - very comfy beds and large TV with many channels. The hotel had free wifi and even a coin operated computer available if you needed - but it was rather slow. The ice machine was a nice added touch - you don't see many of those in Europe. I arrived here via taxi from the bus station at a cost of 7 euros. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to the city centre (Arthur's Quay shopping centre). You can also walk to the Castle too - really close. I did a tour to the Cliffs of Moher and Ring of Kerry. Both day trips left from the tourist centre across the street from Arthur's Quay.

Historical Traveler Reviews Absolute Hotel Limerick
Having stayed with a sister hotel in Galway early in the year, jumped at the chance to book an incredibly rate of only €89 B&B
What an absolute bargain, the property is every bit as fantastic as I hoped & imagined. Rooms are gorgeous and fab bathrooms. We checked in early with plans to take advantage of the city location, but found we just couldn't leave the hotel.
We decided to have a dinner booking was arranged for us and were seated with a view of the river and even the rain couldn't ruin it. Staff were fantastic, the waiters & waitresses are the type that are becoming rare in Ireland, attentive, helpful & personable.
Breakfast in the morning was buffet style but not as we'd known it. Large selection including hot selection so that every taste was satisfied.
Didn't get an opportunity to make use of the spa, but am looking for an excuse to return to do so.
What an amazing hotel!! We stayed here for one night at the begining of June and were more than delighted with our stay. Excellent location (5 min taxi ride to the nearest clubs and pubs!) , beautifull, modern hotel, lovely spacious rooms with top class decor and lovely view out to the river. Safe secre parking just opposite the hotel.
We were eager to stay a second night but unfortunately they were booked out - the girl at reception however was so nice and offered us a late check out of 3pm and no extra cost!
Cocktails in the bar are also fantastic although the bar itself is a bit small. Great craic and sing-song in the residents bar we we arrived back from the clubs!!
Just loved this hotel
This hotel is fabulous and would definitely recommend it. Stayed with two girlfriends end of June 07 for two nights. Staff very friendly and really helpful. Twin room was large, really comfy bed, plasma tv, has kettle and good hairdryer. Shower excellent. Five / ten minute walk to town. Taxi was about 35 euros from Shannon Airport. Easy to get around felt very safe. Sin Bin club was good - taxi back to hotel cost 7 euros.
The spa was fabulous - girls you have just got to go to the thermal suite to chill after day's shopping, touring or after night's drinking. Very relaxing. I also had a facial - sheer bliss! Well worth the money.
There are vending machines on each floor, so its easy to get bottled water, fizzy drinks, crisps and chocolate, takes coins or you can use your room key!! We also ate at this hotel - breakfast and one evening meal, which was excellent. We are definitely going back in a couple of months.
WOW Absolutely great
where to begin check in was good,
nice airy large lobby, bar bit small , food in restaurant great ( ate there twice)
especially the ceaser salad, and the spent most of our 3 days in the spa felt like new woman on the way out and looked about 10 years younger. we got one of the cosy rooms which was big and had plasma tv with pay per view movies (and pringles and little bottles of alcohol in vending machine at the end of our corridor so all goodness of spa may have been wasted but well worth it )
can't wait to go back
New and Nice
We were part of a CIE tour and were switched into this hotel. We were more than satisfied as we were upgraded into a suite. Large, clean and functional room. A fine choice.
As a female staying on my own during a business trip I found this hotel ideal.... Staff were extremely helpful at every stage & especially in the restaurant. The location was also great & price even better - the rooms were very high standard & i loved the
"rainforest" power shower.
This is a lovely new modern hotel. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the flatscreen and free internet access in every room is an added bonus.
The hotel is situated in Limerick city about 5 minutes walk from the city centre.
I would return to this hotel and would highly recommend it especially because it's of great value - 89E for the room.
The food provided in the restaurant was very good and tasty.
Best Hotel I've stayed in Years
The Absolute Hotel is beautifully designed, very eligant and tasteful. The staff are very professional but very nice, we only stayed the night but found ourselves waving to the lady who checked us in everytime we saw her.
The view was so pretty, the hotel is on the rivers bend with a wetland across from it, yet surrounded by the city on all other sides. Just a moment from Limericks tourist quarter as well as Limericks main CBD.
I live in the city and have stayed in 5 local hotels, this has been the nicest. Wide open rooms, beautiful location and a reasonable price (although they were still working on things when we went, so that may rise)
Stayed in this newly opened hotel for a one night getaway from it all....I have to say it was one of the most beautifully decorated hotels I have ever been in, every last detail in the room is fab...I got a great deal of 89 euros for the night for two people..and so wasnt expecting too much from the room, I couldnt have been more wrong - okay so the room wasnt huge but every detail from plasma screen tv to huge power shower was there....even the hairdryer provided was of salon standard!!! The lighting detail in the room is beautiful with blue tinted lights illuminating everything. The tv was a boys dream with free internet surfing, movies, and even a library of 900 albums that you can tune into. The hotel itself has a beautiful restaraunt overlooking the river, a spa and very friendly staff. I would reccomend this hotel for those wanting to get away for the weekend who want a quiet time, a nice dinner, a few glasses of wine and relaxation...I wouldnt really say that it is suitable for a mad girls or lads weekend away. One word of warning is the charge for room service...ordered breakfast to the room and was charged ten euro for the tray to be brought to the room!! But the gorgeous food made up for it!! Would definetly stay here again

We left Dublin and started our drive to Limerick. On our way we saw a sign for Barack Obama plaza. Of course we got off to check it out. This was where part of his family was from and he has visited there. So weird. They are certainly making money on the name.Our first stop was King John's Castle. This castle sits right on the water. It was very …
Early start 6am & Left for Limerick via motorway at 8 am. A bit damp this morning as we leave but cleared up to be a super day with just some passing showers. Through bog country we arrived at a little village of Moate for a break then onto Galway for our lunch break. A quick tour of Galway & Galway Bay & we were off to our days highlight of Cliffs of Mohar. Despite some passing showers a brilliant afternoon awaited us ...
... feels like 3 stars at least. The lift is old and a fire alarm goes off five times and the rooms are freezing, even with a heater-not the best stay.
After we have checked in, I drop my bags in my room and go and visit Dublina. It is a viking and medieval interactive museum. It has way of life set ups, real artefacts and bones and games to play- plus real actors who dress up in costume and talk to you. It is amazing! Best museum I have ever been to! 30 times better than ...
... We arrived back at Limerick at 6 pm, feeling weary, though extremely blessed to have enjoyed the wonderful scenery without any rain. Keep carrying that raincoat and umbrella and it is sure to keep the rain away! The laundry has dried, ironed and re packed! Rearranged the suitcase for the next few days and enjoying a relaxing in house night. Reflections of our two weeks - the weather has been amazing, the highlights for Fay were to ...
... myself a leather bracelet with a three leaf clover on it and a Thompson family crest pin.
After exploring the castle for a few hours, we went back to my brother and his girlfriend's place. Before dinner, it was all pretty relaxed. After dinner, it was board games and family time before bed.
That was the end of my second day.
