Wonderful hotel in Ennis
Wonderful spot. So beautiful and comfortable. Also right in the middle of everything. The staff was pleasant, helpful, and very accommodating. Our children and grandchildren who arrived the day of departure were welcomed for a fabulous breakfast in the dining room. This was very relaxing for them after a 6 hour flight. Would love to go back and stay longer.
