About The Hotel
The Landmark Hotel is more than aptly named for it is a truly fine landmark not only in Carrick-on-Shannon itself, but in the general region as it has achieved a huge reputation for consistent hospitality, comfort, style, service and good food. Carrick-on-Shannon has forever been known as the cruising capital of the River Shannon but, that apart, it is a great central location for a weekend break, the roads are now so good that you are down to Carrick-on-Shannon from Dublin in no time at all, or to use as a base and work your way out on daytrips to other regions. I recommended The Landmark to a group of Americans who were touring Ireland last year and they were absolutely thrilled with the hotel on all counts.
The Landmark stands proud overlooking the river and is fabulously decorated in a lavish contemporary style. All of the bedrooms are beautifully furnished with every creature comfort you could possibly want to make your stay enjoyable. There are four categories of rooms. Executive, Shannon View, Landmark Suites and Landmark Premium. If like me you love to overlook the water then I guess you will go for the Shannon View with wonderful views of the mighty Shannon and the new Marina. The Landmark Suites also have wonderful water views and they have a separate seating area for you to sit and relax, have a glass of wine, or maybe enjoy room service. If you really want to push the boat out, forgive the pun, you can go for a Landmark Premium Suite which is the epitome of elegance and comfort with its own balcony and a really memorable romantic location.
What I also really like too about the Landmark are their great dramatic public areas, smashing bars, the Black Mint Cocktail Bar, the traditional style Mallard Bar, and Boardwalk Bar, two dining options, and a beautiful conservatory with Lloyd Loom chairs which make you feel as if you are relaxing on the River Nile in an Agatha Christie movie– not as good as the River Shannon of course. Food at the hotel’s Boardwalk Café is eclectic and modern with something to suit every palate and it offers excellent value in lovely surroundings both for lunch and dinner. The menu covers salads, pasta, platters, mains, burgers, and interesting vegetarian options. There is also the lovely Aromas Café in the conservatory setting which is just perfect for a casual lunch, an all day breakfast, gorgeous afternoon tea, or indeed a great Sunday lunch. You can read more about the food at the Boardwalk and Aromas on the restaurant side of my website.
The Landmark Hotel can be proud of what they offer their guests.
