The Park Inn Hotel Shannon Airport is formerly The Great Southern Hotel. Directly accessible from the main terminal building at Shannon Airport, the Park Inn is in an unexpectedly lovely location overlooking the estuary and, with its views and rather gracious atmosphere, it retains a little of the old romance of flight. On the practical side it also offers unbeatable convenience for travellers recovering from or preparing for international flights. The hotel is fully sound-proofed and bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, with all the amenities expected of a good modern hotel, including ISDN lines. Activities available include snooker and a mini-gym for guests, and there is golf and horse riding nearby.
