April looks like being a big month for the Limerick hotel market, with another high profile opening, this time the Limerick Hilton, on the site of the old Jury’s. The hotel is part of a larger development which also includes 136 apartments!
The Strand development, situated at the intersection of O’Callaghan’s Strand and the Ennis Road, is re-inventing city living in Limerick. Consisting of a 4 Star Hotel and one hundred and thirty six apartments, it is ideally designed and built to the highest standards. Located within a premier residential area, it is only walking distance from Limerick City Centre.
The Strand provides the ideal setting, bountiful space and high-specification finishes: a leading-edge construction and visualisation delivered to Limerick for the very first time. A lavish, tranquil environment that fuses all the best of contemporary urban living with that something extra: the natural beauty of the Shannon, the reassuring modernity of innovative planning, a feeling of ease and security.
The Limerick Hilton is positioned overlooking Limerick City centre and the Shannon. The hotel comprises 184 deluxe bedrooms and suites with winter gardens overlooking the river and a Presidential Suite on the sixth floor. With floor to ceiling glass and panoramic glass lifts to each floor the city is truly on view. The Hotel has bars with terraces overlooking the Shannon, a restaurant, coffee shop and snack bar serving a range of gourmet meals and drinks all day. The hotel has a main function room and dedicated conference level on the seventh floor overlooking the city with external terracing and flooded with natural light. Business support services and dedicated secretarial services are on hand in the business centre. Internet access is wireless throughout the hotel. The hotel also boasts a full Living Well Leisure Centre complete with 20 metre pool, hydro therapy pool, sauna, solarium, spa and plunge pool. For those who want to keep fit there is a complete cardio vascular and resistance gymnasium with permanent on site trainers. For those looking for a more relaxed environment the Living Well Club also has a number of dedicated treatment rooms offering a full range of relaxing and sports therapy related treatments. The Limerick Hilton is not just a world class hotel but rather a destination in itself.
Again photographs of the development are pretty difficult to come by, Its easy to see that the hotel is somewhat different looking in reality than on the drawing board!
