One of Ireland’s oldest, the Bush started life as an Inn and resting point for tired travellers and their weary horses on the Bianconi Stage Coach route between Dublin and the Northwest. Today the tradition of Inn keeping continues and the Hotel has been sympathetically and sensitively restored as an award winning boutique hotel with open fires, themed lounges and bars, coffee shop and restaurant with innovative and often cheeky cuisine, chic bedrooms along with extensive and flexible conference and banqueting facilities seamlessly blending modern day living with old world charm. The Hotel is steeped in history, charm and character with many memorabilia from the past. We enjoy a town centre location fronting onto the high street of the vibrant and cultural and historic town of Carrick but back onto gardens, private parking to the town by pass and river Shannon and its stunning riverside marinas, walks and parks. The Hotel is privately owned and managed by ourselves, the Dolan family and our mission is simply to provide all of our customers with exceptional honest, ethical and personal service in a respectful and sustainable way (after all you give us our livelihood!). We are passionate about our environment and community but also our 60 wonderful and mainly local employees. Our proud ethos is ‘Happy People Making People Happy!’ Our Hotel is more than a place to eat and sleep. We open our doors to hearts and minds – especially those who enjoy culture, fun, comforts and great cuisine and are we are enthusiastically committed to exceeding your expectation.
