A former manor house dating back to the 18th century, this ivy-clad residence has been totally refurbished to provide the warmth of a country home with the style of a luxury hotel. Located in the center of the attractive medieval town of Ennis, County Clare, the hotel provides an ideal starting point from which to explore the famous attractions of Ireland's west coast. The Burren, Cliffs of Moher, Ailwee Caves and Bunratty Folk Park are all within easy reach, while Connemara and the Aran Islands provide spectacular options for day trips. In the evenings, while admiring the views of the pretty winding streets of Ennis and the rugged beauty of County Clare and the West of Ireland beyond, you can relax by the warmth of the blazing fire inside the Old Ground Hotel.

    The hotel has a cozy antiquated vibe that makes you feel relaxed. The rooms are spacious, quiet, and comfortable. Additionally, for us, it was a huge perk that they have 1 American-style electrical outlet in the room. We only brought 1 adapter, so...
