Harry's Testimonials

Delicious 2021
Had a bite to eat in the bar this evening. The food was delicious and the service was excellent...especially Ashling who was our server, so warm, friendly and funny...really enjoyed her interaction. 

Great Selection 2021

Ate in Harry's restaurant last week with 2 friends. We were given a table overlooking the river with lovely views. Great selection on the menu. We all agreed the food was fabulous and the staff were very efficient and friendly. We normally eat in town but I have to say this restaurant is now my number one choice in Limerick city.

Coeliac friendly  2021
Excellent choice of food available. Quick service, better than most 5-star hotels.
Covid recommendations were in place and enforced which was very reassuring.

January 2021
One of the best vegetarian burgers I've ever had! Really friendly staff as well.

Excellent Bar/Restuarant 2020
An excellent bar/restaurant in the hotel Absolute, Limerick. A good-sized menu and more than enough choice of drinks.

December 2020
Had a fabulous meal in the Absolute this evening. The staff were friendly and attentive whilst being very mindful of ensuring all Covid 19 guidelines were followed throughout. Compliments to the chef, everything we ordered was delicious. Thanks to all for a lovely evening!

June 2020
Vegetarian burgers were amazing, so much choice. They were really quick and also left sweets in the bottom of the bag which was very cute.

Absolutely 2019
Just returned from a great visit to the Treaty city and found my base for any future visits. The hotel is amazing and is matched by the staff who work there Andy in particular, that guy exudes customer service and more we came back last night to have a nightcap after an amazing weekend and he engaged us in conversation made the most amazing drinks and what was planned as 1 drink turned into many!! He really loves his job and the city he has settled in, customer relations suits him down to the ground and he really is an experience in himself thanks for making an amazing weekend even better we cannot wait for the next one

Great staff and superfood 2019
My wife booked the hotel last minute on our way back from Killarney for both of us and two of our children. It was a great experience. The staff were excellent from the reception through to waiting and bar staff. The dinner was included so I was expecting something basic. However, the food was superb as was the buffet breakfast the next morning. I don't usually write reviews but we felt the excellent service deserved mention.

Baby Shower 2019
Hi, I hope you are well today. I wanted to sincerely thank you and all the staff at the Absolute for a really great day last Saturday. Everything was perfect, the staff were lovely, the food was amazing in quality and quantity and the space was set up exactly as I had requested. You really couldn't have done more for us. All the ladies at the party were very impressed and delighted with the service. Thanks again for all your help and your work. It really was a great day. I'll certainly be coming back to you in the future for anything I am planning.

Great restaurant with a nice view 2019
We had dinner at Harry's during our stay at the Absolute hotel. Their restaurant was busy with a group booking but the staff made a quiet table by the window available for us and looked after us really well. The food was lovely and the wine list is interesting and extensive. There is also a range of local beers on tap. Limerick seems to have a range of excellent dining options, and Harry's is certainly one of them.

Birthday Party 2019
It was a successful surprise party after all.
With regards to the overall service, my family would like to thank you all for your generous help throughout the event. The duty manager, the customer
service (Reception), and other staffs were very kind and always ready to help whenever we need something. The food and the venue preparation and decorations were all excellent.

Dinner 2017
Awesome friendly staff, great food. We stayed at this hotel and we usually don't eat where we stay and we rather explore the cities restaurants. But it had great reviews and we were not disappointed. Table by the window, great river views.

We had dinner here one evening while we stayed at the hotel. The food was top notch. We ordered mussels and tandoori salmon on flatbread.
Both were excellent!

We had a fabulous lunch on Friday and the service was outstanding.

Thank you so much for all the help with the pre-order, everyone was delighted with their meal and couldn’t believe how organised you all were even though the bar was full with other diners. Thanks again and hope to see you again soon. Denise.  

Lunch 2017
We had a wonderful lunch - thank you.  
I was delighted with everything – the service, food, prices were all top class.  
I stayed in the hotel as well and overall it was a fantastic experience – from check-in (Stephen upgraded our room) to departure and everything in between. As a Limerick native, it is fantastic and fills me with pride to see such a wonderful team operating in a great hotel. I travel a fair bit and your hotel is one of the very best I’ve been in.
Keep up the good work.    

Superb service 2016
Excellent service from check-in to check out. An extensive list of cocktails prepared by friendly bar staff. Dinner was included in our deal and while we expected a nice dinner we actually received an excellent dinner. Breakfast couldn't have been better. 2nd time staying in this hotel and each time the service gets better.  


Very good food at a reasonable price 2016
A good menu with some very tasty and well-prepared local favourites. Friendly staff makes the experience even better.


Sunday Lunch 2016
We were a party of 5 adults that arrived without a reservation for Sunday lunch. Not a problem for the girl that met us at the entrance to the restaurant. We were promptly seated in the bar area overlooking the Abbey River. Two courses are 16.95 and three are 21.95. We ordered the seafood chowder and crab fishcakes for starters, beef, chicken and salmon for the main courses and I have to say, all dishes were excellent, top quality and would be hard to beat elsewhere. Desserts consisted of a lemon trifle, apple strudel and poached pear and all were yummy. Service was prompt and delivered by staff who were friendly and most helpful. Definitely will call again, highly recommended.

Full marks to the whole team from start to finish – including yourself! We had a very relaxed evening and felt you guys did everything to make it a success.
