We had a very comfortable stay at Bunratty Castle Hotel, although we felt we were in the minority as we were an independent family of four amongst literally coach loads of tourists. Thanks to the team at the hotel therefore for giving us a quieter room, where we all slept peacefully, and had easy access to the little garden as... More

Being on a coach tour in Ireland you never know what kind/type of hotel you will get, however, we were very pleased with this hotel. The staff was ready with all our room keys and all hands were there to efficiently get our luggage off the coach and to our rooms. Loved the old style of the hotel yet its... More

Be advised that this place can be difficult to spot. If you drive over the bridge you are screwed as it puts you back on the e-way with no easy way to turn back (we know this from personal experience). It sits up a short hill opposite the castle, but when coming in from Shannon both the castle and the... More

Very nice hotel. The room was very large (700 s.f.) Good climate control and amenities. Service was excellent. Breakfast wasn’t so good because a tour group was ravaging through the buffet when we went down. In the evening there is a Craic, which is an Irish folk music event provided by very talented local amateur musicians. One American couple asked... More

This is a classic resort hotel, walking distance to the Bunratty Castle and Folk Open Air Museum. Clean room, you have to jump a few hoops for the internet. Spacious rooms. A great place to stay. Close to Galway, Shannon Airport, Limerick, center of County Clare.

We stayed here for one night during a recent tour. Our room was large and clean and the bed very comfortable. The grounds were immaculately kept with a quaint cemetery behind the hotel. Bunratty Castle was right across the street and there were several restaurants and shopping within walking distance. The breakfast buffet was nothing special but all in all... More

we stayed here for 2 nights after a stressful time. We left completely relaxed and 'topped up'. The hotel is superbly located for all the sightseeing attractions of the area The early opening of the swimming pool allowed us to swim around 7am. The food in the bar was top class and reasonably priced. The rooms were big and the... More

The hotel is a bit dated, but it was one of the most comfortable, spacious rooms we had in our recent visit to Ireland. The room's sitting area, with coffee table, was appreciated so much after too many over- priced, very cramped rooms. The price is reasonable. There were plenty of towels, and extra face cloths. Thought the bathroom was... More
