'Excellent Service' - July 2020

Just returned from our second visit to this hotel and we were very reassured with the safety procedures and social distancing measures in place throughout the hotel while at the same time all staff being being friendly and respectful of guests. We felt very safe at all times and would not hesitate to stay here again and recommend this hotel.

'Fantastic weekend' - March 2020

We stayed for two nights for a birthday celebration, we had a fabulous weekend breakfast to our room which was delivered with everything we needed one thing I noticed big jug milk 👍 the food in the bar was delicious on both nights great atmosphere around the Hotel and good advice from front office where to go for good night life and late bar on our return where we could sit down and chat with no rushing us. Breakfast in the restaurant was well presented and served sitting looking out at the river was lovely.
Our room was comfortable spacious with everything we need thank you for great stay and we will be back.

"Great Hotel, staff and easy to get around town" - 2019

We arrived at the Shannon Airport at 6 am jet lagged, exhausted, hungry and tired. The four of us took a taxi for 40 Euro to the Absolute Hotel. We originally was suppose to stay at the Clayton but last minute was booked here. At the end of our 14 day trip we stayed at the Clayton but I am so glad we stayed at the Absolute at the beginning and for 2 days. Beautiful hotel, wonderful staff, they did their best to get us into a room knowing we had flown all night and needed to sleep. Breakfast was delicious and dinner was very good too. The views from the dining room are beautiful. The hotel is located in a beautiful spot and easy to walk around town. There are nearby walk run paths which I has happy being a runner. This was the only hotel in 14 days the had an outlet that did not need a converter. I travel with a small coffee pot which I ruined even with a converter on day 3. This hotel has everything! Even USB chargers. Very affordable too!

"Best Hotel we stayed @ while in Ireland!" - 2019

Stayed @ The Absolute for two nights during our 1,000 mile trek through Ireland & was more than satisfied. It was very clean & the staff was accommodating. We had laundry done while we were there & the staff did a fantastic job. I would definitely recommend this fabulous hotel for anyone looking for a place to stay in Limerick.

"Best Hotel in Limerick"- 2019

I have the pleasure of staying in The Absolute Hotel on a regular basis and I must say it is a wonderful hotel. Very pleasant staff, beautiful rooms and good food (the breakfast is superb !) This hotel has a fresh feel to it and is decorated with some very interesting artwork. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. WiFi and TV service is also good. It is located on the banks of The Abbey River and is convenient to King Johns Castle, St Mary’s Cathedral and the city centre. Secure car park is available.

I always look forward to my stay at The Absolute - my home away from home!

"This is Absolute Fantastic!"- 2019

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. From the location through the staff, everything surpassed my expectations. Chelsea at the front desk was very helpful in suggesting locations for a great place to enjoy a nice cup of coffee. Andy was a great bartender/jack of all trades in the restaurant/bar with such high energy and lovely sense of character. The food and drinks were fantastic. I had my fair share of the Supreme Chicken which was my favorite dish. If you are a chocolate lover you HAVE to have the chocolate mouse. TO DIE FOR. The room was very comfortable, clean and modern. It was nice to have an US outlet but plenty of other outlets were available for my many electronics. Jacob and Tony, also at the front desk, were very helpful when I had to extend my stay due to my flight being cancelled. I was not upset by any means. The hotel was able to accommodate which was a blessing

Beside the wonderful staff, great food and comfortable room, I enjoyed that the location was within walking distance of some great pubs, restaurants and shopping. The location is also very safe feeling. I plan on returning to Limerick and staying at the Absolute Hotel.

"Love this hotel" - 2019

This is my third time staying at this hotel, absolutely love everything about it. It's very modern, staff are very pleasent, food is amazing, beds are extremely comfortable. Always a pleasure staying here, will definitely be back.

"Super hotel and restaurant" - 2019

Only stayed one night in this very impressive modern hotel. We paid a small surcharge for a higher floor room overlooking the Abbey River and the room was large, comfortable and well furnished, especially liked the Nespresso machine. Reception staff are charming. The weather was very rainy and every time we set foot outside to find a restaurant the skies opened, so we ate in. The restaurant has great views across the river, a really nice menu and we found the food was well prepared and tasty and staff were friendly and professional. We'll be back and stay longer next time.

"Wow" - 2019

We stayed one night, the rooms were amazing it is def one of the nicest and trendiest hotels iv stayed in by far. Very clean. Love the fact they had air con in the room I tend to fine hotels to warm so it was great to have that. Coffee machine was in the room which was a big wow factor. Def recommend it. Def going to stay again. Also, the staff at the desk were lovely and very helpful and friendly 😊

"Great Location" - 2019

Wonderful hotel right on the river within walking distance to most everything. Our room was fabulous. Super comfortable bed and high quality TV. The coffee maker in room was of the highest quality as well. Super helpful staff and wonderful breakfast. And the free parking garage was a huge plus !!! 

"Perfect" - 2019

By far the best hotel we've stayed in so far in Ireland. Everything about it was great - large clean room, comfy bed, great bathroom, close to town, superb breakfast, helpful and friendly staff, parking, river views and a modern contemporary style. We loved it!

"The Limerick Riverfest" - 2019

Thank you to all at Absolute hotel. I have stayed in many hotel chains across Ireland and found this hotel offered the best value, with both beautiful rooms and a wonderful restaurant. The room was exceptional!!!!! This hotel is centered around the heart of the medevil Shannon and all her history. Wonderfull views, full irish and super friendly staff! I will be looking out to book with them again. Thank you again to all the staff for making a nice weakened even better

"A Great Place to stay in Limerick" - 2019

I stayed here earlier in the year and have since recommended it to others. It's close to everything including the train and bus station. I arrived very early but was immediately able to check into my room. The rooms are very spacious and nicely decorated. The tv was at a comfortable eye level with a good choice of channels. There was a great shower with nice toiletries and if you love your coffee there was a Nespresso machine that made me very happy. I'll be back.

"Well worth booking this hotel" - 2019

Rooms are excellent clean and very specious, good quality coffees in the room. My room overlooked the river, lovely and peaceful.
Staff were v friendly and helpful, food was good, breakfast covered all the bases. I stayed for a week highly recommended

"Perfectly located, Excellent quality all round"- 2019

Rooms was very spacious and immaculate. All service staff extremely pleasant and easy to deal with. Breakfast included well worth it. Location is perfect for business or pleasure trips. Would definitely recommend this hotel as a must for anyone travelling to Limerick

"Perfect Location" - 2019

One night stay everything from check in standard of rooms cleanliness was perfect. Very modern hotel with excellent staff
Great choice for breakfast. Few mins walk to the main city center. Overall a must if staying overnight in Limerick

"Great Hotel, Lovely stay" - 2019

Had a lovely stay, rooms immaculate and huge, fabulous lunch, staff were really helpful, location good about 10 min walk from the city centre, well worth its #1 rating in Limerick, will be back for sure.

"Brilliant Hotel in a brilliant location" - 2018

This is one of the few hotels I have visited over the years that warrants its star rating. Was there for 3 nits in June. Really good size well equipped bedroom, very helpful staff and top quality breakfast. It has its own free car park unlike several other Limerick hotels

The hotel is located on the river side with a terrace bar. It is literally 2 minutes from 2 of the Limerick must visit tourist destinations - St Mary's Cathedral and St John's Castle. Plenty of good restaurants and bars within 10 minutes or so walk.

"Fab hotel" - 2018

Had a one night stay. When we enquired before visit about cost of upgrading to a suite we were given one complimentary! Suite was fabulous. Staff were very friendly. Food was great. Only disappointing thing was we were just there for 1 night. Would definitely recommend.

"Loved this hotel - Best night we had in Ireland" – 2018

This hotel felt like going home for a night. We are from the US and being able to park our car in an enclosed car park, have air conditioning, have a readily available HDMI ort on the front of the TV to watch our own devices was fantastic.

"Awesome stay in an excellent location" – 2018

We really enjoyed our one night at absolute Hotel. It is in a wonderful location on the River Shannon and we were we able to walk to King Johns Castle where we saw a concert. The room was very big and beautiful and the staff was very courteous

"Amazing! 5 Stars!" – 2018

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay start to finish. The hotel itself is absolutely stunning, ultra-modern and luxurious. The decor is beautiful in the lobby and the rooms are very clean and modern. The vending machines had a great selection and having an ice machine on every floor is ideal. The lift is so secure (need to insert your room key in the lift to access room floors). We stayed in a suite and The TV was brilliant, we loved the power points for HDMI cables- so handy. The room was gorgeous and the balcony was lovely. The food was really good- great menu in the bar. The showers are to die for- I’ll be back for that alone!! The staff were so accommodating and friendly throughout the 3 days- I couldn’t recommend more. We will definitely be coming back.

"2 nights in Limerick" – 2018

Booked this hotel as a Birthday/Anniversary treat for me and my Hubby, with a chance to catch-up with family too. 
We absolutely loved it. I'd emailed to say we could only check-in after 10pm because of our flight...and from start to finish, it was perfect. 
We found all staff very friendly and helpful (with no exception) and a credit to the hotel. The hotel's decor was lovely. Our room overlooking the Abbey River was huge and stunning, with everything we could possibly need... from coffee maker, to toiletries, to hairdryer and iron. We had a few drinks in the Bar, and enjoyed the Breakfast during our stay. 
We had time to visit St Mary's Cathedral, King John's Castle, The People's Park, and had our family catch-up with a lovely Thai meal in Limerick town centre, a walk along the Quayside with a few Guinness along the way... all within walking distance from the hotel. 
We'd love to return and have already recommended. Thank you...

“Beautiful and friendly hotel”

Perfect location to walk to many landmarks, very safe area. Receiving staff at desk, friendly, accommodating and helpful. Hotel lobby is bright and open, easy access to gym and restaurants. Best coffee in Limerick. Room was large, and view to river Shannon right outside our window. Lovely shower. All in all, the best place to stay so far.

“Absolute Hotel - Absolutely”

Very very clean comfortable Hotel...staff are very down to earth ......on leaving the hotel it was raining and one of the staff came out of the office with an umbrella ....rooms are beautiful with air con, very modern but warmly decorated. Food is excellent and the restaurant is well laid out so your not banging your chair off the people beside you or behind you. Food is great value with set menus for a set price .The restaurant staff are very helpful...there was a family with a toddler who obviously was over tired and they were very family friendly and very kind to the tired toddler. Service in both bar an restaurant is fast and friendly 
Located very close to beautiful attractions like King Johns castle and the Milk market .....

“Friendly and pleasant ”
