After checking into my new hotel - Absolute Hotel - in Limerick I figured it was a good time to book my day tours thru the front desk. Seemed simple enough....nope! The tour company I wanted to use told me to arrive in the morning at the pick up point and pay the driver/guide directly. Ok. Cool. Problem was.....they never showed up at THIS …

Dingle Penninsula

A travel blog entry by penns


We got up, ate breakfast and were out of the house by 10 am. We got in Sarah's car and took off. We drove a couple of hours and arrived at the town of Dingle. We shopped a little and then ate lunch. We left the town about 2:30 to drive the Dingle Peninsula loop. The peninsula is one of three that extend out of the west side of Ireland. We expected the 47 km drive to ...

Doughnuts and breaking the rules!

A travel blog entry by ucfgirl55


... I took a detour to see Bunratty castle ... Which you can't go inside unless you are going to the medieval banquet. And then another detour to see --------- castle (I forgot the name - and it's not in my guide book). Which was closed to visitors but I drove up anyway :) Once settled into my hotel, I walked a couple of blocks to copper and spice for some very tasty Indian food!! Driving in Ireland is like playing Mario ...

Moms and Stuff

A travel blog entry by melepua

... week, my mom didn’t hear me impatiently ringing the doorbell, as she cleaned away inside and I was stuck outside. I called her name through the windows and everything. As I stood there at the door miffed, a table of regulars at the bar invited me into their little circle. I spent the next 45 minutes joking and laughing, jesting, talking about Darby O’Gill and the Little People, and all sorts of fun. These two older gentlemen made me almost die of stitches on my side, ...

Limerick, Irish Ceilidh & Bunratty Castle

A travel blog entry by rozzij


... chicken. Our room is fine with plenty of room for the washing line. We are old hands at this washing - should have packed less clothes. We go out for dinner and a Irish Ceilidh at the barn at Bunratty Castle. We had a sing song and were encouraged to join in with printed sheets handed out. I knew the song and as no one could hear me I thoroughly enjoyed it. Next thing I know I'm chosen to come up on stage. I nearly died. I ...

    Great hotel

    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

    Absolute-ly FANTASTIC!!


    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.

    WOW Absolutely great


    oh WOW,

    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.

    Absolutely Fantastic!


    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.

    Lovely hotel


    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)

    5 Star!!!


    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
