      Just Grand


      Stayed there Nov. 1-3, 2004

      We had booked through an internet website, however, when we arrived at the hotel, our reservation had been lost. The front desk lady was so kind and offered us tea or coffee while their in house reservations lady researched the problem.

      The problem was corrected quickly and we were upgraded to a two level, two bedroom suite for our inconvience!

      Pros: 24 hour front desk

      Staff is polite and wonderful

      Room is clean, quiet, and comfortable (suites offer full living room and kitchen)

      Great location: short drive to Shannon Airport, Bunratty Castle, and Durty Nellys pub; short walk to restaurants and food markets.

      Cons: Hotel does not have its own parking therefore we had to utilize the car park approximately 10 feet from the front entrance. The hotel will give a 24 hour car park ticket for 7.50 euros for utilizing the public car park. The car park itself does not operate on a 24 hour basis but the hotel staff has the key for those (like us) who departed at an odd hour.

      A grand hotel. I would stay here again.

      Excellent Hotel


      Hotel is excellent value for money. The rooms are fantastic, nice an roomy and so is the bathroom. Everything is nice and new and the upgrade package for an extra EUR40 is great value. My parents were given a free upgrade as well which was a great surprise. Room service was very quick and breakfast the next morning was lovely. Would recommend anyone to stay here if travelling to Limerick.

      Clarion was good


      My friend & I recently stayed at the Clarion for one nite. Arrived from the US on the early morning flight so we hoped to check into the hotel earlier. The room that we booked (1 Double & 1 Twin Bed) wasn't ready and wouldn't be for several hours but being tired from the flight we decided to take the room that was available which had 1 Double bed. Good thing we were only staying for one nite because our 3 pieces of luggage took up any free space that there was in this tiny room. I know hotel rooms in Europe are much smaller than those in the US but this room was small. The view from our window was of this huge garbage dump & the Shannon River. The hotel was noisy and you could here all the doors slamming when other guests left/came back to their room. The did have a computer in the lobby with free internet access which was a nice perk. Location was good and within walking distance to the main road. Conveniently located near Dolan's pub which we went to for a nite of drinking & live music. Didn't get to eat the breakfast that was included in our room rate because our train left early in the morning and breakfast didn't start on Saturday until later. Would stay there again but book the Double& Single Bed configuration because that room would be much bigger than the one we had. Hotel staff was nice and helpful.

      Very Affordable Luxury


      I stayed at The Clarion for 4 nights in August. The room was modern in design and very comfortable, lovely Egyptian cotton duvets - no feather pillows though which you'd expect from a 4* hotel. The bar food is Asian fusion and fab, the restaurant was disappointing - everything was smothered in butter and sweet peppers - not for those of you with an educated palet. I would highly recommend The Clarion and stay there again, very cheap compared to a London 4*, my room was only about £60 a night. Avoid the restaurant though, there a far better places to eat in Limerick.

      Terrific hotel.


      I stayed in the Clarion for 2 nights and it was absolutely terrific. Luxurious rooms. friendly staff and wonderful food and drink. What more could you ask for in a hotel.

      Great hotel


      Beautiful hotel. Very large, clean rooms. My family very much enjoyed our stay here. Somewhat pricey, but a very nice stay. The waterfront area is still being renovated next to the hotel so the view is just OK on that side, but when it is complete, this will be an outstanding place to stay.

      Clarion lived up to recommendation


      The Clarion is fab! It's apparantly the tallest hotel in Ireland!!! We weren't sure where to stay, as limerick has loads of chain hotels, but our guide from tourlimerick recommended it before we left home, and it was worth every penny. It's situated over looking the estuary and seems to be quite a new hotel.There a great traditional irish music pub called 'Dolan's' just 2 minutes walk away. It's also a good place for a big irish breakfast if you fancy a change. Some of the scenes and places in the book Angels Ashes are with walking distance of the hotel.

      All in all,a good area to stay in.

      Fabulous for all!


      My husband regularly stays at the Clarion when he works in Limerick. We took our children (aged 10, 6 and 2) with us when for a week recently. The hotel (mostly full of business people) coped fabulously with our children and we were welcomed very warmly indeed. Although the restaurant is truly fabulous, if you're only staying for one night eat in the bar, the Oriental cuisine is spectacular and you can order bits and pieces when the mood takes you. The bar is lively (but not too noisy) and this is a great way to people watch, or sit and have a good chat.

      The swimming pool is great too! Not what I'd call big, but big enough and you can't beat the view (it's on the first floor!)



      Fantastic hotel. I stayed here in September 03. The rooms are a luxury, just as the other review stated it is like a 5 star! The hotel was very busy when we got there and the restaurant was booked out so we had to eat in the Kudos Bar, the food here was delicious and very reasonable. I will definately stay here again!

      Fantastic hotel


      Like staying in the five star hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. We booked the room just 5 hours before we arrive. The room is big and clean. They also provided extra bed for my 3 yrs old daughter free of charge, with view to the river. Buffet breakfast is wonderful with lots of choices of hot/cold meal and the view from the restaurant is fantastic. We will be staying there again if we visiting Limerick.

      ... to see the different rooms and reach the top of the tower. The surrounding area embraced Irish heritage from the 18th and 19th century. The property had village shops, homes, gardens and animals. I think our goat friend was trying to escape or at least ensure people passing by took his picture.

      We left Bunratty Castle and headed to Adare for our Castle stay. Pulling into the gated property we anxiously awaited our first glimpse ...

      ... Everything was great we found our bed and breakfast at Coonagh just outside Limerick. As it is a long weekend - Bank Holiday, there was little traffic. Just outside Limerick we pasted a place called Béal an Átha - which is Ballina in Gaelic.

      We checked in and met the owner of the house, she was lovely and welcoming, making us coffee with cake on our arrival. We had a chat about where we should visit. We moved our ...

      ... while I was in the water. The 5km hike was also very beautiful, and I was joined by an unexpected companion. A border collie on a field saw me walk by, jumped out of the bushes and joined me for most of the trip. I was delighted with the company, but a little worried he wouldn't find his way home and someone would think I kidnapped their dog. I named him Buddy. Just before the beach Buddy ran ahead of me and I turned the corner to see two older ladies ...

      ... track a few kilometers. That combined with me doing a quick fix on my headset and suddenly, we were a bit short on time. We cycled to Tipperary (yup, it was a long way), and then up to Limerick Junction making it with 10 minutes or so to spare. It was cold, rainy and windy the entire way. So much for our luck with the weather.

      We bought some train tickets and waited for the train. It arrives and then we're told we have to put our bikes ...
