Bunratty Castle is an absolute delight. I urge you tonket for the tour. It's been perfectly preserved as a living historically accurate workaday castle and is astonishingly beautiful. The rooms are furnished and even have livery and the period dresses laid out on the original beds. It is unbelievable how detailed the rooms, pantries, chapel room, even the dungeon have... More

The hotel is pretty but is old and needs some upkeep done. It is in walking distance of Bunratty Castle. It was quiet and clean for the most part. I wasn't especially impressed by the hotel restaurant/bar.

This hotel was welcoming from the moment we pulled up. It has beautiful grounds, exterior, and main rooms. My room was spacious, with a very comfortable king bed. The view out of my window was of an enchanting courtyard with a statue. The hotel is a short walk from Bunratty Castle, shopping, and a pub. The breakfast buffet was delicious.... More

We stayed one night as we were leaving from the airport in the morning. The rooms were nice and all was clean. The staff was fine but did not seem to go above and beyond to make your stay more enjoyable. It was great to walk to Bunratty Castle and Durty Nelly's pub. They offer a shuttle to the airport...

We enjoyed our stay at the Bunratty Castle Hotel. Nice property and good value. We thought the breakfast that was included offered many choices. Only negative was that WiFi was not included. Easy walk to Bunratty Castle. Room itself was very large.

We stayed at Bunratty Castle due to the location for exploring and then ease to Shannon Airport. As you pull up to the hotel, it looks welcoming and is painted a lovely shade of yellow as it seems to imply old world charm. I can only say I wish that continued. This hotel was the biggest disappointment of our entire... More
