We stayed here on our 4th visit in 3 years, over the Easter break for a week. We had booked a family room but on the first night my husband couldn't sleep as he found the bed uncomfortable. He contacted reception who said they would see what they could do. On the morning after our 2nd night we had a... More

It can be stupid but I got the hotel and night before and important meeting. In the bathroom no conditioner... So small but very important for me that moment. Call the reception begging for help and the answer was not friendly or helpful. Just not, we do not provide. I offer to pay if they sell it somewhere aaround. The... More

We had asked for a quiet room as we were flying in to Shannon Airport and I was hiring a car for 8 days (10.30 pm arrival). The room 129 was next to a crowd of people shouting and laughing so we were moved to a room on the second floor - there was still a lot of noise from... More

We stayed here the first and last night of our trip. The location is perfect for arrival/departure from Shannon Airport. The staff was delightful and extremely helpful. I was concerned about some of the reviews but we completely enjoyed our stay. The rugs in some areas should be replaced but our room was very nice. It was a large room... More

Good location for arrival\departure from Shannon Airport. The hotel is dated but clean, the bar food and the breakfast are both good(minus the scrambled eggs!!) and the breakfast staff are very attentive without being intrusive. The bathroom was clean and spacious but the shower was very disappointing with little or no hot water. We did not request a room with... More

Stayed at the Bunratty Castle Hotel recently. The Hotel was generally clean and neat, the service was average with our check in handled very poorly. Despite having e-mail confirmation and a confirmation number the hotel did not have us booked in. Finally having managed the booking and finally getting a room, the room was neat and tidy, overall clean and... More

My husband and I travel frequently to Ireland and have found the Bunratty Castle Hotel to be an ideal place to get over our jet lag before striking out to explore. I used Bunratty when I attended Ballymaloe Cookery School one summer. Travelling alone, I felt perfectly safe and at home at this fine hotel. I stayed one night prior... More

This hotel has potential but it needs some love. Very beautiful on the outside and within close walking distance to a pub, some shopping, and Bunratty Castle. Our room was comfortable but showing it's age. There were some small cracks in the walls and the sink in the bathroom was "cute" but very small not very functional for our needs.... More

Great hotel and staff. You are just across the road from Bunratty castle, folk park and pub. We enjoyed our stay. Breakfast is excellent. Rooms are good. Some rooms are a bit of a long walk so ask for porter to help with bags.
