Both would be about the same distance from town, both are nice hotels and neither are in noisy areas so its whatever you think looks nicer or has the better price.

You won't go wrong with either option, both are fairly central and will be quiet

I'd choose the Clarion, realy like the place

The Absolut - Had the chance to stay there a few times and its well worth. Rooms and beds are comfy. Breakfast is nice too.

This could clinch it for you.

Parking in the absolute is free in their own sealed and secure car park.

Parking in the clarion is not free and in a covered public car park.

Try Trivago to find the best comparison rate.

No idea what they're like to stay in, but in my opinion the café/bar area in the Absolute is much better.

Why do so many people think the Absolute is named after a Swedish brand of vodka?

Or: was it actually first named the Absolut?

Clarion over Absolut .. But both are waaaaaay behind Savoy. Rooms are much bigger and more modern, best brekkie in a hotel I've had in Limerick.
