We stayed at the Armada for Sunday through to Tuesday toward the end of October. We didn't know it when we booked the hotel that it was a Bank Holiday on the Monday in Ireland, and it was half term, but to all intents and purposes for us it made no difference other than meaning there were more people for breakfast than we would have expected to see on a Monday. Speaking of breakfast, what a spread? We found the hot food (bacon, sausages, white pudding and black pudding, roast potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes, scrambled egg, and fried egg) to be both hot and fresh, and the range of cereals and porridge both wide and plentiful.
We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly, our room was large and clean, with comfortable beds, and good facilities, and the view of the bay from our first floor window was absolutely breathtaking.
Would we stay there again? Certainly!
Would we recommend it to others? Definitely!
If there was anything to niggle at then I would say that the lack of a large general lobby type area for people to come in and meet for coffee and conversation is the only thing missing.

Great place, across the street form Durty Nellys and the castle. We wanted to stay somewhere that was close to the airport but that had Irish history. Shannon is a new town made for the airport. Bunratty has a historic castle and pub, it was only about ten minutes by cab (25 euro fixed rate) or half hour by public bus to Limerick (much cheaper). The hotel was very nice, staff was great, overall great.

The staff here are very good. The bar food was good. The room large and comfortable. The breakfast waitress exceptionally helpful.
It is expensive but everything else about this hotel is extremely good.
Stayed in this hotel in July 2014. Ideal location ...plenty of activities nearby e.g. bowling, pet farm, 30 mins walk to Ennis Town. Kids Club went down a treat with our 4 year old boy especially the disco. Staff very friendly and efficient. Food lovely.
This charming hotel is a great place to stay for a trip to the Cliffs of Moher, arriving or departing via Shannon. Airport. Ennis is a great town, and the Old Ground makes it a preferred stop on any itinerary.
The Staff were very helpful & friendly. The first room was too far from reception & this was change without a fuss, for one closer, as I have a mobility problem with my knee.
The whole atmosphere was warm & friendly. I would most certainly stay at the Auburn Lodge again
