Great rooms, gre­at food and friendly service in a really stunning hotel situated on a bend on the Abbey River in Limerick City.­ Here in the Medieval Quarter of Limerick we are only minutes walk away from King Johns Castle and the Hunt Museum, not to mention the amazing Milk Market with its artisan producers. The Absolute Hotel Limerick is the perfect base from which to get the best out of the city­ be it business or pleasure.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed here with 2 of my friends at the weekend on the girly getaway deal. would really recommend this hotel. It's lovely and only 10/15 walk to city centre which is great. Car park is small but we got there early enough to get a space. Staff were friendly and the room (triple room) was fab with great view of the Shannon & city. We ate in their restaurant Harry's on the water & the food was great, they have a really good menu. The service was quick & staff very efficient & helpful. Breakfast was great too, they had a great selection of food at the buffet & the hot food cooked to order was really nice. We had a great weekend & we will definitely return

We stayed at the Absolute for 5 nights for a conference at U of Limerick. The location is excellent but the staff and amenities are what really made our trip wonderful! The staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We recommend this hotel to everyone we know heading to Limerick!

Fantastic hotel. My Sisters, Mum and Aunt stayed on Friday and Saturday night in the hotel. My mum and I were the first to arrive and had the best massage, feeling relaxed we chilled out in our spacious room overlooking the Cana with a glass of wine. We were shortly joined by my sister and Aunt and had dinner in the restaurant, it was outstanding. The food was on a par with Neven Maguire's restaurant in Blacklion. On the Saturday we walked to UL by the canal from the hotel. it was a lovely walk. After that my sister got her hair done in the hotel and the rest of us went shopping, my mum was thrilled to get a new coat in Brown Thomas, on the Saturday we ate out in la piccolo and came back to the hotel for drinks. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the atmosphere in the bar was festive. The bedrooms were immaculately clean and the beds super comfy. A shout out to Calum on reception and to the two Luke’s. The parking was secure and safe with direct access to reception and no additional parking charges. 100 percent recommend this hotel. Also met a few girls (in the lift) on a hen party from Kerry who were also raving about the hotel. Take a bow Absolute hotel Limerick and keep up the good work.

Be careful! Lovely hotel , couldn’t fault it until going down for breakfast on my last day . For some bizarre reason the cleaner , had took every item out of my room , even though to anybody with any sense it was still clearly occupied and way before check out time . After a couple of trips to reception , I was then informed my stuff was in the “lost property “. When I managed to get my bag back , several items were missing , and I asked to staff at the time if they could locate them . This wasn’t possible even though the time passed was at maximum an hour , so I don’t know what they had done with them , but they still obviously had to be on the property . On e mailing management on my return home the general manager replied that he hoped my things would turn up ??!! I have no idea how he thought this could be possible as they disappeared from my room in his hotel , and I was now in a different country . Most unsatisfactory, if not blatant dishonesty .

Response from Donnacha Hurley, General Manager at Absolute Hotel
Responded 25 Nov 2022
I'm really disappointed to see this feedback. Sorry It is really difficult to comment on this specific issue without all the details. We don't automatically remove items from bedrooms without good reason, and if we did make a mistake we would try to address. Sometime for example if a room was down as a departure and perhaps left a small toilet bag in the room, that may be removed and logged as lost property. Clearly as you say I have emailed you but due to tripadvisor I cannot revert on what i said or why i used the words "i hoped things would turn up" We have a clear standard in place and while clearly things can go wrong we have never in over 15 years had an unexplained item lost or stolen. Regards Donnacha Hurley General Manager Regards Donnacha

We only stayed 1 night at this hotel but it was an excellent stay. The hotel has on site parking and the rooms are modern and spacious. The staff are amazing, so friendly and knowledgeable. Chelsey on reception was incredibly helpful when I made a mistake with my original booking. It is close to the city centre and we had a lovely walk along the river whilst we were there. We ate in the hotel in Harry's bar. The goat cheese and beetroot salad was lovely as was the pork plate. Wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

Extremely pleasant! The rooms were clean and well accessorized. But the best part was the wonderful staff. They were so helpful, answered any of our questions thoroughly, helped us get around the city, and were very accommodating. The breakfast was awesome as well and they did offer gluten free options, you just have to ask :). We had to leave early the day we were leaving limerick and they even had little to go bags and breakfast for us. The hotel is also close to the city center and there is a ton to do. We recommend the Locke Bar that’s very close. Highly recommend the stay here!
