I stayed here in October 2012. Just getting around to writing my review now. Upon arrival I was greeted by friendly staff, I was given a tour of the place and grounds and taken to my room, which was surprisingly spacious, and very clean. I loved the fact the they have skeleton keys for the doors, I've only ever seen... More

Check in was cold. Were not given any information about the hotel, for example a lounge was available to us. Although we were asked if we would like breakfast at an additional charge. Paper thin walls, left me feeling disgusted everytime any neighbor used the washroom. The hostess seemed nice enough, but it was a bit creepy with the host... More

Our stay here was good. We were met at the door by the proprietor and immediately let in out of the cold and rain. Our rooms were ready, and we were directed to a good area of town to have dinner. We had two rooms for our family of six, one with a double and a single bed, the other... More

We stayed at the Ardilaun Guesthouse for 2 nights while on a 10 day tour of Ireland. Upon check-in we were informed in a rude manner that we were a day late in arriving, and that we were supposed to have been there the night before. I gave the lady our "confirmation" paperwork---she was quick to tell us that our... More

Good afternoon clayjp, We are hugely regrettable that you were disappointed with your experience at our Guesthouse. It’s rare that the dates for arrival on our system do not match those on the confirmation sheets, but it can happen from time to time and on this occasion is appears that the arrival dates did not match those on our system...

On our recent visit to Ireland, we found the highly superior Ardilaun Guesthouse very comfortable. We are a 'mature' age couple and we had our own hire car. It was clean, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast really good. Unfortunately, we were on our way elsewhere so could not stay more than one night, but if we ever return... More

Very clean room. Tea and coffee in the room. Nice bathroom. Gym available, even sauna if you wish. Good breakfast with great choice. Lovely location, beside the river. Not too far from town. Very good price.

Our stay at the Ardilaun was lovely. We arrived at 9:30 AM having landed at Shannon Airport earlier that morning. We were exhausted and hoped to check in early, but Mrs. Purcells had a full house. Still, she and her staff got us into a room within one hour. We had a nice nap and were ready to start our... More

We stayed 3 nights at this very nice and clean guesthouse. If you are looking for something right next to the center this guest house might not be ideal for you as it takes a 25min walk to get there. Otherwise i can absolutely recommend this accomodation. We had a great time there. Btw WiFi worked fine at the ground... More

Great value for the stay! Would definitely recommend this to anyone that wishes to stay in between Shannon airport and Cliffs of Moher. Our room size was decent and the bed was comfortable and clean. We requested a room facing the backyard so it was very quite at night.
