Lonely Planet review

One of Ireland's oldest in-town hotels, this family-run place only gets better with age. The public spaces are kept thoughtfully updated while still preserving heritage charm; historic photos abound. The 60 rooms are more contemporary and corporate with slick modern furnishings, plush carpeting and desks. There's a modern wing in back.

Our independent authors have visited Bush Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Carrick-on-Shannon.
