Hen Party 2019

Just an email to thank you all wholeheartedly for all the effort you made for us on our visit to your lovely city – Maja, Michelle, Lindsay, Angela, Calvin to name but a few!

All 24 of us had an amazing time and from the moment we stepped in we knew we were in good hands.

The lovely touch in the bride-to-be bedroom to welcome her with a lovely presentation, to the efforts you all made to set the tone in the boardroom for our pre-dinner cocktail/mocktail – “absolutely” – the best stay in a long time!!!!

We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and thank you to your team there for ensuring we all felt special.

Everything from the restaurant for dinner to breakfast to the comfort in our rooms not to mention the excellent handling of the room layouts – no stone was left unturned to accommodate us and we really appreciate all ye did for us.

Until next time!!!!

We will all highly recommend your lovely hotel to our family and friends.

BBQ 2019

We had a staff night out last week at the bbq that the hotel hosts, after such a fantastic night at our Christmas party here this year we had to come back for another night. From the minute we booked it the lads in events couldn't have been more helpful, I than had to ring the manager to change one of the menus for someone the day before we arrived and he couldn't have been more accommodating. On the night both management and bar staff checked on us every few minutes to see if we needed anything at all. For any work teams looking for a chill evening get together, I couldn't recommend this hotel enough. We are planning our next one already.

BBQ 2019

Thanks so much for all your help. I have heard nothing but positive feedback from all who attended Friday evening, the venue and food could not be faulted at all and again thanks so much for all your help. 

Thanks again for all the help and I’m sure we will be onto you again for another night before the summer ends.

Meeting 2019

The opening could not have run any better last night. Everything required on the night was top drawer. Through my photography business, I have visited so many hotels throughout the country and nothing compares to the warmth and genuine commitment by all the hotels' staff at The Absolute to help and assist us throughout the last number of years. Your professionalism in keeping lines of communication open to me almost on a daily basis leading up to this year's show was second to none.

Meeting 2019

I want to acknowledge from the outset that it has been a pleasure dealing with you and you could not have been more helpful and professional in relation to the organisation and running of our event yesterday.

This was an important event for our organisation and we wanted to make sure the small businesses owners who attended the event felt important and looked after, that invited delegates were comfortable, that the logistics in relation to organising space for the businesses to exhibit their products was organised and safe.

Each of the above was met by you without us having to ask. A number of colleagues were there early to set up and they couldn’t get over how helpful the staff member was in relation to setting up and dressing the tables. One colleague said she was going for a cup of coffee before she knew it he had arrived with a coffee for her and two others. The food was excellent and it was just right. Huge acknowledgement to Sandra for meeting up with us in advance and estimating exactly what we needed.

Credit where credit is due, this level of organisation doesn’t happen automatically, significant work and dedication goes on behind the scenes and on behalf of myself and all in the organising committee, I want to acknowledge the work of each person who contributed to the success of yesterday’s event.

Meeting 2019

Thank you very much for everything. The room and service we got was excellent as usual. We love holding our meetings there everything is so well organised and runs smoothly. Its lovely to be able to give our members a pleasant and comfortable experience. The hotel is so accessible. It really is a great venue for meetings and events.

BBQ 2018

Everything was fantastic on Friday night, thank you so much.

The games went down a treat and the food was amazing plenty to go around and excellent quality, as was the area you had reserved for us. The barmen were great crack, god knows they had a lot to put up with. 10/10 – 100% all the way, I would have absolutely no reservations in recommending your BBQ to any company looking for an enjoyable night out.

50th Anniversary  

We had a wonderful night and cannot thank you and the team enough for everything you have done. Everything was fantastic on the night including the decor, staff and the atmosphere there. Ger could not have been any more attentive to us. The food was one of the BIG highlights and was mentioned back to us on the night itself and also from people who've been in touch since Saturday. Can you pass these compliments back to the kitchen please. Thanks again for all of your help and we will certainly be recommending the Absolute to our friends and family.

Birthday Celebrations 2018

I have to say that the food was unbelievable and everyone was talking about it how good it was. Can you take this back to your chef and his staff in the kitchen. Service we very good as well.

Christening 2018

We recently held our son's christening in the Absolute Hotel. The service was fantastic on the day, the hotel made everything very easy for us.  Darren looked after us for the evening, he went above & beyond to make sure we were well looked after & took the stress away from us.
I would highly recommend the Absolute Hotel as a venue to hold a special occasion, the function room was big enough for the kids to run around, the food was super & the service exceptional. 

Confirmation 2018

Just want to say that everything was fantastic Saturday for the confirmation, we cannot praise the staff enough. The food and service was excellent, everyone really enjoyed themselves. 

Meeting 2017

I have been tutoring for the past number of years and we regularly use your hotel. Every time, I have found the facilities and service of the highest standard. Eoin is so helpful, always sorts things, and is so professional, polite and courteous. I really had to compliment the service he gives.

 Dinner Party 2017

The room was ideal and was very well laid out. The food was also excellent. Many of our guests, especially those who had never been to the hotel were very impressed with the venue and the staff. It turned out to be the ideal venue and we would definitely go back again. Thanks very much for everything.

BBQ 2017

The team had a fantastic day, as always, the Absolute team made us all feel welcome. The food, service and whole experience was perfect. Also, massive thanks to all the team involved in bringing it together. The team in the afternoon and evening were so attentive and I just love coming to your hotel.

It truly is a great spot, you have a brilliant team and I could not recommend you enough.


Family Reunion 2017

Everything went really well on Saturday night. I couldn't speak highly enough of Darren who looked after us very efficiently and all the team at the Absolute.

BBQ 2017

Everything was great on Friday, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We were blessed with the weather so we got to enjoy the food on the balcony, which was lovely. It was great to have the inside area ready for us then when it got a bit cooler in the evening, so this was perfect.

Hen party 2017

I would like to say a huge thank you to yourself and the team at the absolute hotel. The staff were amazing and courteous. The rooms were amazing, spacious and so comfortable. Everyone that stayed were extremely complimentary with regards to the hotel and staff. The meal was perfect. You made us so welcome. You have a fantastic package set out for any hen party and I would highly recommend anyone staying in Limerick to book into the absolute. We had a fantastic night away and the hen thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. 

Meeting 2017

I must say from the moment we checked in yesterday the entire experience was second to none. We had some lunch served to us in our meeting room by very helpful staff who could not do enough for us. The meeting room was well equipped and had everything we needed and was very comfortable.

The bedrooms were really top class and again nothing was left out, and all our experiences were positive.

Christmas party 2016

I must say we all had a wonderful time. Not a complaint in the bunch and everyone had a right good night. Thank you so much and your team for facilitating such a wonderful night. The Jackie Chan All-stars band went down really well among my department anyhow and everyone was up dancing even folk who wouldn’t usually step out onto the dance floor. Booking was straight forward, there were no hiccups or anything along the way and I’d definitely recommend you to any other Christmas party or even just for a night out. Thank you again.

Naming ceremony 2016

I wanted to email and thank you for your support in organising our naming party.
I cannot speak highly enough of the hotel staff. Everyone was super helpful and professional. Owen, the night manager was great. So attentive as were all the serving staff. The hotel staff are it's greatest asset. My aunt who stays in 5 stars hotels in London and NY said the staff in the Absolute Hotel were by far the best she had come across.

The food was delicious. All the guest were raving about it. The bar staff were very personable. Particularly the gentleman making the cocktails.
The rooms were extremely comfortable and clean. All my siblings, aunts and friends that stayed in the hotel were extremely impressed. My aunts and uncles are already planning a mid-week break.
Everywhere was clean and well maintained. Looking forward to planning another party there in the future. 

Thanks again so much.
Warm regards,

Dinner Party 2016

Our experiences over the weekend were very positive. Our rooms were delightful, spacious and quiet. In fact, you have a hidden gem as I did not realise the rooms were to such a high standard. Quite the best in Limerick I would have thought. The small touches such as the macaroons/champagne on arrival were wonderful. All our friends who stayed were truly delighted with the facilities.

In terms of the evening itself, it was faultless. The reception room was beautifully laid out, the drinks reception could not have gone better. The menu was wonderful and the food was scrumptious. The staff are a credit to the hotel and the attention to detail was second to none. All requests were met without the slightest hesitation-well done to all concerned. It was clear from the attention and service we received that our function was important to you and this was noticed by our guests who were very happy and enchanted by the whole experience. A number of our guests had not been in the hotel before and were really pleased the way the whole event was managed by you and your colleagues.

Our rating would be A*.

So many thanks to you and your colleagues for turning a birthday celebration in a memorable event. Please pass on our congratulations and thanks to your colleagues.


Christening 2016

40th Wedding anniversary 2016

Thanks a mill for the mail, we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend! I cannot rate highly enough the service we received throughout the process. 

Firstly, you were invaluable in creating this day with us, we really felt all our requests were listened to and delivered with superb attention to detail.  On the night itself, the staff were all extremely helpful and friendly, in particular, the duty manager on the night (Eoin) as he checked in regularly with us, so much so party-goers were commenting on it. 

The food was great and vegetarian options were much appreciated.  Many thanks again for all your help and we will definitely be using the venue for any future bookings we have!

Hen party 2016

I honestly do not know where to start - the weekend was just fantastic and from the minute we arrived to the last person checking out everyone was raving about the hotel, - the rooms, the meal, the staff everything was just exceptional!! You all went above and beyond anything, we had expected, from the welcome macaroons in the bride's room - to the personalized menus at dinner and the little things like arranging all the rooms close by it truly was amazing. I have to say in particular the staff are an absolute credit to the place - in particular, Mark on the front desk was just brilliant! 

Surprise birthday party 2016

We will definitely be back for another party soon. 

Conference & Dinner 2016

We had a marvellous weekend and the hotel was great. Everyone spoke very highly of it. The facilities, the food, the service in particular with regard to the conference set –up etc was excellent.  We thought the staff were all very good and very friendly and helpful.  On behalf of the Federation many thanks again and hopefully we can see you again in the future. 

Conference 2016

Hi Collette,

I mentioned this on the day to the hotel staff but I have to say it again, your hotel was the most efficient out of the four we held events in and the food was the nicest. We had a lot of feedback on the day on the quality of your food....particularly the snickers ice cream.  Also, the staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all the best value for money and will continue to recommend your hotel to my colleagues.

Thanks, Ruth
