We have stayed at the Great Southern Shannon for the past three trips.

From our first visit, we were amazed at the thoroughness and attention to detail exhibited by all of the staff. We had requested non-smoking rooms with two beds in each room. Upon our arrival, we found that we had been given smoking rooms with a single queen bed in each. The desk clerk made sure we were settled in the lounge and then set about making the necessary changes. The only rooms that were available were in the upper price range but they graciously settled us in to the new rooms without charging us any additional.

The beds were soft and comfortable, a huge plus from someone who has sleep issues due to chronic pain. There were plenty of pillows to be had in the room and yet we were asked if more pillows might be needed. The towels were plentiful and thirsty. The toiletries they provided actually didn't dry out the skin like most hotel soaps and shampoos.

The gentlemen in our group were ecstatic to find real coffee and a coffee pot in our rooms. It had been a great hunt throughout Ireland for real, brewed coffee.

The breakfast the next morning prior to our departure was more than we expected. They offer a grand breakfast buffet with cook to order eggs, a variety of fruits, cereal and other breakfast goodies. They also had fresh squeezed orange juice and REAL COFFEE.

I recommend this hotel to everyone who has asked me to create an itinerary for their Irish vacation. It is the perfect place for taking your leave of Ireland.

Unique Quality: Their proximity to the departure terminal, just walk across the parking lot and there you are.

Blair's Bar has an incredible turf fireplace and terrific pub grub!

They have accommodations available for those with disabilities.

Stayed here one night last November. Arrived at Shannon airport at 10:00AM after an overnight flight from Baltimore. Was grand to stretch out horizontal after the long trip and rest for few hours. Some day I'll learn to spring for the outragous cost of business class - maybe. When we arrived the wind was howling at about 50 MPH and the rain was torrential. A few close calls just getting out of the parking lot! Did a little practice driving on the left side to Bunratty Castle and back - parked it - and calmed the nerves at the hotel's decent pub.

Found the hotel a solid value - good sized rooms and clean. Good breakfast in the dining area. A good first night place to switch gears and then set off the next day well rested. Not much in the area except the airport and open fields, about a 20 minute drive to Bunratty Castle.

If it is your first time to Ireland and if you did take the red eye to get there, I would strongly recommend you hold off renting the car and just walk over to this hotel and rest up. A good rest and you'll be right as rain and even the driving won't disturb you. Ireland will keep drawing you back and as you get used to the changes it is easier to just get off the plane and jump in a car.

Unique Quality: Good restaurant and pub.

Directions: At the airport just across the parking lot from the terminal building.
