Heart of the Absolute
Photographer Eoin McCarthy was given free rein and spent a week behind the scenes with the team of the Absolute to capture what happens in the everyday life of the hotel.
The exhibition takes a snapshot of the team as they go about their duties looking after both locals and visitors while keeping the cogs of the hotel operation going. What guests see and experience on the outside is backed by a team that is hard-working yet has a lot of fun and shares mutual respect that makes the running of a hotel, for the most part, appear seamless. The Absolute hotel is modern, yet comfortable and friendly and the building is alive with great people from the moment you set foot in it, to the moment you leave.
The exhibition here shows the true spirit of the Absolute staff and their dedication to providing a home away from home experience for the guest.
We are so pleased as #teamabsolute to deliver a personable and energetic service and we are delighted to see you like what we are doing …
"Fantastic Stay" - TripAdvisor October 2020
Just back from an amazing stay. The room was amazing, we got a river view, just stunning both day and night. Everything about the hotel is so clean, the box of items in the room is a brilliant idea, felt like opening a welcome present! The bed was so comfortable, and the blackout curtains are fantastic!
Will highly recommend to friends and family!
"Fantastic stay will return" - August 2020
Stayed just one night but will definitely be back, this is a great hotel, very modern, very friendly staff everywhere. Food is amazing, breakfast was delicious, cooked and brought to the table. Covid restrictions did not in any way detract from our stay, in fact, I was very impressed with all of the implementations this hotel have gone to in order to keep guests safe. Sanitisers in the lift, on every floor, bathroom spotless, bedrooms are big with really comfy beds, big flat-screen TV, river view. A box in the room with toiletries and coffee tea etc all individually packed. I can't wait to return. Parking was simple and secure. Reception staff are to be commended for efficiency and friendliness.
"Peaceful, Spacious and Comfortable" – TripAdvisor April 2019
We recently had a great night’s rest at the Absolute Hotel. Parking on site was easily accessible, check-in was very efficient and friendly. The hotel is centrally located with most of Limerick’s sites within easy walking distance. Our room was modern, spacious with a great shower. Absolutely quiet throughout the night. Great Stay!
"Relaxing Haven" – April 2019
We stayed in the Absolute hotel for my wife's birthday and couldn't have asked for any more from this place. The staff were exceptional particularly the guy at the front desk and both the breakfast and dinner staff. They were most accommodating and always smiling which really made our stay. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean with all mod cons overlooking the Abbey River. The food could not be faulted and was some of the best we've had. Can't wait to go back to this wonderful hotel again!
"Excellent Hotel" – March 2019
Stayed here on 22nd March for the night, the hotel is spotlessly clean, the rooms are lovely and have everything you need. Lovely coffee maker, ice bucket and there's an ice machine on the corridor which is handy when having a drink getting ready. Had a lovely meal in the restaurant and breakfast following morning was also excellent with plenty of options. All the staff are very nice, helpful and friendly. It was a great value.
"Joan & Ted" – March 2019
Just stayed at the absolute hotel in limerick for Patrick's weekend, and I have to say it was the nicest hotel I've stayed in for a while.
The whole stay was lovely, ice maker in corridors lovely rooms, great food, but what makes this hotel is the staff, pleasant and welcoming they are a credit to this hotel would recommend it highly.
"Wonderful staff and amazing service" – March 2019
Our first time staying at the Absolute Hotel and hopefully, it will not be our last. From booking this hotel by phone and speaking to a very friendly and efficient Receptionist, Corina, to check out of our reservation the whole experience was second to none. The staff at the Absolute Hotel were the best I have come in contact with in a long time and each and every one of the staff makes the guest feel good and they all give the impression that they love their work which is a skill in itself!! . We had food in the restaurant and it was top class as was the variety of food for breakfast the following morning. When we arrived at check-in we were told we had been upgraded and the room we had was luxurious, to say the least, Can't wait to return in the near future. Well done one and all.
