Town Centre, Carrick On Shannon, Leitrim, Republic of Ireland
The Bush Hotel is a cosy, three-star accommodation situated in the centre of Carrick on Shannon, County Leitrim. The area offers something for everyone, with golf, bowling, hill walking, angling, horse riding, cycling and more.
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.
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.
The hotel has received a number of awards most notably the European Eco Label 'Flower' Award in 2009 and was a recipient of the 2010 Georgina Campbell Green Ireland Hospitality Award. The Bush Hotel was also awarded the coveted Vodafone sponsored ‘Passion for our Environment’ Award in 2009.
