I just spent a most enjoyable weekend at the Bunratty Castle Hotel attending the Shannonside Winter Music Festival. It turned out to ba an ideal Family Friendly hotel, and we will be back. The breakfast was fab.

Lovely hotel with modern fresh rooms. The view to Bunratty Castle made this trip even nicer. Swimming pool/fitness centre were up to date and the design and layout were perfect. Breakfast very tasty with generous servings. Couldnt fault the location as the castle and wollen mills are all within walking distance. Hotel bar was nice and quiet but you have... More

We stayed here overnight so we could attend the Medieval Evening...at the Castle. There were several pubs in the area as well and just down the road one of the most spectacular Golf Courses on the Grounds of another Castle.

All staff members that we met seemed to hate their jobs and all patrons who necessitated their being there. The pool is small, the hot tub was out of order when we were there, and in an odd position (just imagine being stared at by a guy on a treadmill in the gym whilst trying to relax in the hot... More

We attended a wedding here yesterday. The function room had been refurbished since we attended a wedding there a few years ago. It has an all-white theme and the hotel staff seemed to have the wedding formula perfected. The meal was scrumptious...I had the sea-bass and it was delicious. I thought the serving staff did a tremendous job. A young... More

Stayed here for just one night so that I wouldn’t have so far to fall if I became too drunk while at a function at the Castle. Was assigned room 441 and found the pillows and duvet to be synthetic filled. The bed itself was of medium density. Shower was grand but watch out should someone flush toilet, the hot... More

We stayed here on a recent trip to Ireland. The hotel itself is just fine. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, staff is helpful, and there is plenty of great places to eat nearby, and some wonderful attractions around. I am writing this to warn people about the weddings. We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night. Both nights the hotel... More
