My friend and I stayed at the Bunratty for several day in July. Clean, great service staff, nice rooms, great pool, decent breakfast buffet. Very close to Shannon airport. Good restaurants within walking distance. I wouldn't give it 5 stars overall. But with friendly service and overall great quality I would definitely stay there any time!

Bunratty Castle Hotel is perfectly located next to the castle and a small village. The building looks quaint from the outside, but once you enter the building you immediately see that everything is tired and worn. The most offensive part was the note from management that the air conditioning system was not operating and that I should get by with... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Bunratty through CIE tours. It was a lovely hotel with very comfortable beds and a courteous and friendly staff. It is located right next to the Bunratty Castle, which served an outstanding Medieval Banquet. There is also some shopping within a short walking distance at the Woolen Mills. The grounds at he Bunratty... More

We had booked one night at the Bunratty Castle Hotel in order to be close to the Bunratty Castle for a prebooked Medieval Banquet. The Hotel was just across the main street from the Castle, very conveniently located. The grounds and Hotel were nicer than we expected. Our room was spacious and clean. Breakfast, included in our room rate, was... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night as part of a Trafalgar Tour. The hotel was elegant and nicely furnished. Our room was average; we wished we had a safe and a fridge. Our t.v. remote also did not work, however, the hotel staff came to our room and tried to make it function. The hotel is extremely well-located.... More

Beautiful exterior. For the price, the rooms were decent sized and well laid out but the place is a little tired and worn. It needs better management. Rips in the material on the headboard, torn seats with tape covering the tears in the breakfast room - just unacceptable and a bad reflection on the management. The breakfast was adequate. All...

The hotel is just next to Bunratty Castle for history and Durty Nellys for a meal. The rooms were spacious, the staff were friendly and service oriented. During our 2 night stay, there was a wedding party going on. We ate the hotel restaurant where the service and the quality of the food were excellent. Breakfast could be better though... More

We stayed here for one night and it's a pity it wasn't for longer. The hotel is lovely and even though we arrived quite late there was no trouble getting food in the bar. It was great value for money and I would recommend it as a base to explore the surrounding area.

I had to be in Shannon for a couple of days and stayed one night in this very pleasant hotel. It's close enough to Shannon but it feels like being in the middle of the Irish country side, located in the medieval village of Bunratty. The room was very good, no complaints there. And staff was very friendly: although the... More
