Early start, needed to leave home at 4.30am, and I am not a morning person at all! Arrived in Shannon Airport with plenty of time to spare, so I had to have the aul obligatory pre-flight fry-up. Typical Ryanair flight, I had to walk up and down the aisle of the plane twice, looking for a seat, before I was offered one in the 'reserved' section at the front.

... she sang Memories. They were excellent, really good costumes. Their theater is the only one of its size in Limmerick so they also try to get new performances in. Fab. Then we toured their chapel to see the first public display of their version of the Benedictine's copy of St John's Bible. It was commissioned in 1995, started in 1998 or so and completed in 2011. It's also called the US Book of Kells. It's 7 volumes and absolutely beautiful. Wow. You need to look it up; ...
... drove away in search of help and saw an older man, completely out of an old story, walking with his border collie, stick in hand. Why does everyone walk with sticks, we wondered. We learned later that it keeps walkers safe on the narrow, twisty roads while motorists speed by. We drove around to a nearby gas station and looked everywhere for buttons. Others Americans there tried to help us, the clerk tried to help us, the manager tried to help us, to no avail. People ...

I did a week's worth of assignments on Friday, needing desperately to make up for time lost when I was sick. That evening I met up with a group of friends from the academy and we went to a swanky pub in town just for a couple of hours. We were all feeling overwhelmed from the week and needed a Friday night outlet. I ate a burned cheese sandwich. Just after I ordered it, my friend "I smell burned cheese." Everybody else "It's probably your ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Inn by Radisson Shannon Airport
Rats in the walls, terrible food, rude service. Never Again!!!!
From many of the reviews below, people seem to be comparing the Great Southern Hotel to five star hotel stays. My review is based on the fact that the hotel is a three star property, with rates starting from €59 online (I spent €69 for an easter weekend stay), and not against five star properties.
Unresponsive staff, rude porters, TV in disrepair, heat cannot be controlled, no hot water in morning, breakfast was unedible, and tables filthy. If you enjoy these amenities, then be their guest!
A relaxing finish
A very nice place to start or finish your holiday. The rooms are well equipped, the staff is friendly and helpful and the food is good, especially breakfast. You can't beat it's proximity to the airport as it's only a 2 minute walk away. If you ask for a room that overlooks the estuary you would never know that the airport is that close.
I stayed here after reading the reviews on this website, so I thought I would add my comments too.
Stayed in early March 2004. Found the staff to be very rude and unhelpful except for Amanda at the front desk. Could not get bar food at 8.45pm desoite the fact that others seemed to be eating. When it was asked when the food service stopped, seversl steff looked at each other and simply repeated that it was closed.
Our Stay at Great Shannon was great
I just read a review on this site about this hotel and I disagree with their review. Our stay at the Shannon Great Southern was great with a capitol "G." Not only was the staff very helpful and the rooms nice, but everything there was wonderful. We stayed for 8 days in April and I am going again in March and staying there again. Boo Hoo that you had to take your own luggage to the airport. It's all of a 2 minute walk.
Or, you could have gone over to the airport and got a trolley like we did. Or, were you too lazy. The saddest part of my vacation was leaving. The staff was wonderful and helpful.
Good older hotel
If you are expecting a 5 star property--look elsewhere. This hotel is nice and clean with a great staff but the hotel is old. Be very careful with the hot water--it is very very hot. Also-be sure and take your alarm clock as wake up calls are non-existent
Home away from Home!
In February, 2003, I returned to Ireland to visit my dying father. Circumstances prevented me from making a firm reservation, but staff, especially Manager, Brian Bowler, at the Great Southern Hotel, Shannon, insured that I received a warm welcome. The service I received from the hotel staff, including receptionists, restaurant and bar staff, was greatly appreciated. The morning I was departing for Canada, the porter (Seamus) even sat on my suitcase to help close it. I ask where else in the world would one find such service or flexibility? Many, many thanks to this superb team, who certainly demonstrate positive attitutes, obviously enjoying taking care of their guests and going beyond the call of duty. Great Management, Great Saff!
This hotel is most unsatisfactory.
We have recently spent a night at this hotel, based at Shannon Airport, and unless you are prepared to drag your own luggage across to the airport, I would not recommend it at all. There are no carts, no mini-bus and no porters to help! There was no one to help with the bags either, on arrival or on departure,which I consider very bad for a 4 star hotel. The rooms were nice and the food too, but the bathroom had many flaws. However I insist that the lack of help with the luggage, and the unfriendly and unhelpful manner of the personel at the reception desk, should be most certainly be reported to the Hotel Group and to all future guests.
