Recently, while on a tour we stayed here for two nights. The first and last nights of the tour. This hotel is getting to the "needs an update" stage. Especially the rug in the lobby. Check in staff was very friendly. We had breakfast there and it was quite good. Also had dinner there two nights but staff did not... More

Large corporate run hotel. Needs a bit of updating. Service a little cold compared to smaller hotels and B&Bs. Great location next to castle and folk parks with cottages from around the country. Breakfast buffet was room temperature and boring.

Last night in Ireland... This was set up by a tour group as it was near the airport. The hotel is old which could give it charm. My room had so much furniture there was barely room to walk. Had to leave my suitcase on the floor as there was nowhere to put it. Scuff marks all over the walls...room... More

Before i begin with this review, i emailed the manager of this hotel pointing out all the issues we had on the night ..We did not get a reply. This hotel is very much over priced, the quality for food and portion size are terrible. The room we were given was on the top floor and we were told it... More

I'm here as part of a CIE tour. We only had a short time between arrival and dinner and they brought one bag and not the other. I politely asked the young man if I could grab my own bag and he promised to get it right away. It was the LAST bag brought. What a terrible ambassador for an... More

Ratty towels, incomprehensible WiFi instructions, broken magnifier mirror and shower surround in the process of falling apart just the highlights. At checking, our prior request for rooms closer to the elevator completely neglected, we were so far from the elevator that we might have been in another hotel. Had to wend our way through a wedding reception to get to... More

We needed to stay near the airport on our final night in Ireland. This Hotel was close to the airport. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The restaurant and Pub were nice and the staff was friendly and helpful. The Bunratty theme park was a short walk away. It was a nice end to our vacation.

Walking into this place was like stepping back in time. I loved the decor. There were sconces on the walls! I would stay there again! The room was huge which is different than most in Ireland or England. The room was clean for the most part. There were gnats flying around the sink in the bathroom but it was not... More

Myself and my now husband booked our wedding at Bunratty Castle Hotel - There were 2 words we heard consistently "No Problem!!!" Mr David Shelley, GM, was exceptionally helpful and devoted to our every whim and need. The team at this hotel work marvellously together, from front reception to waiting staff, bar staff, room service etc. The venue is warm,... More

This hotel is beautiful with lots of charm. There's not much around it other than the castle, a woolen shop and a few restaurants. The rooms are good size and clean. The bathtubs are extremely narrow, but workable. The first room we were in did not have working power outlets and they weren't able to fix the situation, so they... More
