The Bush Hotel is one of Ireland’s and Leitrim’s oldest hotels, it 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 enjoys a town centre location, right on the King Fisher Trail! It fronts onto the high street of the vibrant, cultural and historic town of Carrick. They also have gardens and a private parking area. The river Shannon and its stunning riverside marinas, walks and parks are all within walking distance.

The Hotel is privately owned and managed by the Dolan family, with a simple mission “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.” – Quote from Joe Dolan, Managing Director, The Bush Hotel
