The hotel is a bit dated, but it was one of the most comfortable, spacious rooms we had in our recent visit to Ireland. The room's sitting area, with coffee table, was appreciated so much after too many over- priced, very cramped rooms. The price is reasonable. There were plenty of towels, and extra face cloths. Thought the bathroom was... More

I stayed at the Bunratty castle hotel on 20th July 2014. On arrival I was informed that I had double booked my room online by accident. The staff including the manager were completely unhelpful and detached from my situation. They told me I would have to contact the online service and sort it out myself. I was unable to access...

We stayed here for our first night in Ireland. It was close to Shannon airport and they were kind enough to let us check-in early for our room. The rooms were nice, but the hallways need a little maintenance. Looks like things need painting and new carpet. The grounds were just beautiful. It was situated right across the street from... More

This is a good hotel when flying in/out of Shannon. We only stayed one night (Saturday) and they were hosting a wedding at the same time (luckily we had a room on the opposite side of the hotel so we were not disturbed by noise). Good size rooms - could use a little refreshing, huge beds, ancient AC. Bunratty Castle... More

My family of four (2 adults & 2 children) stayed two nights at Bunratty Castle Hotel and enjoyed it thoroughly. These were our last two nights in Ireland before flying out of Shannon Airport, and this was a wonderful place to cap our trip. Staff were very friendly and professional. The hotel is accessible by public transportation, being a short... More

Located near Bunraty castle, this beautiful property offers good rooms, good service, good food and a large spa and massage facility. One of Shannon's best hotel property. Has other restaurants and pubs in the area only walking distance.

Loved the pool and the look of the rooms. Clean basic hotel. Nothing fancy but great location next to bunratty castle and reasonable rates. Would definitely return if traveling in Ireland again. If you are staying here make sure to turn in at the creamery bar. There are no signs to the actual hotel on the main road.

We travelled over 1200km. through Ireland and this was one of the loveliest places we stayed in. The room was gorgeous, bed extremely comfortable - wish we were there more than one night! Bathroom was very well appointed. Even had well working air conditioning which was very unusual (no screens on windows and its damp at night, so we closed... More
