the queens hotel is located on abbey street in the center of ennis. all of the attractions of ennis are a short walk from the hotel. the rooms were clean and the staff helpful. the hotel has a bar and restaurant. an historical note about the queens hotel, it was featured in james joyce's novel "ulysses". one word of warning, on weekend nights the youth of ennis party on the square in front of the hotel and are quite noisy. on weekends try to book a room not facing the street. other than that i was quite satisfied with my stay.
Directions: central ennis
This filthy hotel is under all chritic. The reason is a very boring person in the reception, Mary Meane. She was rude, noisy and unproffessional. had no manner or feeling for service. Everything is a total mess, an inferno of confused(of course)and unserved guests, who are waiting with suitcases while the staff is running around and besides that, expecting the guests to be fine with that! The staff are nice actually, but ms meane made it hard for them to show that, because of her shouting and bad temper.
The rooms are ok though, even if they are far away from even 3 star, the breakfast even so, ok.
Dont know if I were unlucky to be served by one of the most rude, but a woman in the reception, Mary Meane, acted like she didnt have a clue about service and didnt even smile once. She just refused to help with any questions like roomkey, direction to the toilets. she sad that that was not her job to do. I guess she was hangover cause the smell of booze was like a fog around her. She seemed to be some kind of manager, but acted like she hated all the guests AND her staff. i was not the only one to notice that.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone who is not in very need! but its prefered to spend a night in the irish rain.
Smack dab in town. Right next door is a fabulous church that is creepy and ominous, making for a great back drop on the bar next to the hotel. Adjoining the ruins of a Franciscan Friary founded in 1242, The Queen's Hotel is located in the centre of Ennis town and is just 15km from Shannon International Airport. This is an all in one place, pub food, music, good accommodations and old fashioned. The Bar that’s next door is called Cruises Pub and won the Black and White Pub of the Year award. The hotel is over 100 years old and has the reputation for being where James Joyce’s Ulysses was written.
I dug it. It was cheap compared to other 3 star hotels something like $60 a night, and I think it was the best one in town. I would have anyone and everyone stay there.
