Fodor's Review

Barry Keenan is the fifth generation of his family since 1838 to run this first-rate hotel and restaurant overlooking the Shannon, making Keenan's a virtual village within a village. Initially known as a pub, Keenan's has evolved into a quality restaurant perfectly capable of challenging the Purple Onion next door for culinary polish and panache. The bar is a mini-museum filled with memorabilia and a "Wall of Fame" featuring some well-known celebrity visitors over the years. Bedrooms are painted in calming beige and cream, with black curtains, dark-wood furnishings and plasma TVs. Ask for a room where you can watch sunrise over the Shannon from your small flower-filled balcony—an ideal time-out spot to gaze at the river and listen to birdsong.
