The staff were all very friendly and efficient. We ate dinner in the bar and it was good and had a lovely breakfast the...

We stayed at the Old Ground twice (two seperate nights) on our recent holiday/ visit to family members in Clare and Kerry. The hotel has a very traditional feel- nice 'period' decor/ furnishings and good old fashioned service. Both rooms we stayed in were a very good size- although one had a larger bathroom than the other. Breakfast was very...

Ennis is a very nice small...
