Dinner 2017

Awesome friendly staff, great Food. We stayed at this hotel and we usually don't eat at 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.

Dinner 2017

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

Lunch 2017

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. 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.


BBQ 2016

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.
