3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Beautiful on the outside. Rooms hot and stale. Small TV. Breakfast was very unorganized. 4 tours groups at once. Best part - Kathleen's Bar - stayed open for our group. They would not exchange money either. Good point - easy to walk to shopping.

I stayed here for one night with a tour group. The room was very spacious, a king bed for a single room. Beautiful view of a small courtyard outside my window - enjoyed my cup of tea there. Large bathroom with plenty of room to spread out.

Fantastic family room with large beds and bathroom. Stayed with a group of friends. Excellent food and drinks, all the staff were brilliant. Castle and grounds worth a visit. Great value for money couldn't fault it. Hope to visit again soon!

Been there lots of times now and never less than great things to say. Ideal hotel for a family with young kids. Great family rooms, swimming pool, breakfast buffet, steakhouse restaurant and lovely staff everywhere you go. We've also attended a couple of weddings at Bunratty Castle Hotel and again everything wax excellent.

It was a quaint hotel with long corridors and winding turns. The view was pleasant and the staff quick to please. We enjoyed our daily breakfast as we stayed two nights. I had a massage and it was wonderful and the price was reasonable. The pool, sauna and steam was a welcome addition to a sore body from long travels.... More

This was the first hotel we stayed at after a long flight. the hotel staff were friendly, had a great meal in the pub. There were a lot of bus tour people around but not a problem.

Stayed here due to it being close to Shannon airport. Nice hotel, but nothing to write home about. It was definitely odd being amongst SO many tourists though after staying at b&bs in other parts of Western Ireland. Next time I may stay in a b&b outside of Bunratty. Breakfast buffet does not compare to b&b breakfasts.
