This hotel is lovely. The lobby is beautiful! It's quite large, with lots of rooms to offer. The location was great, right near Bunratty Castle and Folk park. If you have events at the castle, the hotel is a great place. From limerick to Bunratty a cab will cost $30 each way. It's not worth it. Stay at Bunratty! They... More

Nice and confortable. Would stay again if ever in Ireland. Staff was excellent. Staff went out of their way at all times. The room was excellent and confortable. My only small problem was the Breakfast was only average. I would recommend this hotel highly.

Very nice hotel near Bunratty Castle (walking distance). Large rooms w/comfortable beds and large bathroom with separate tub and shower (unfortunately had trouble getting good hot water in shower). Room was quiet, comfortable, clean, & contemporary design. Excellent food in dining room. Staff was extra attentive. No concerns whatsoever.

Always a mainstay ending our annual trip to ireland, but Bunratty needs to step it up! Antiquated Wifi wreaked havoc on patrons as another guest challenged reception upon departure. Breakfast was chaotic and unorganized, staff unpleasant. Common areas would benefit from some updating. Front desk staff nice enough, Bunratty relies heavily on the coach tours so maybe standard practices are... More

I was only hear for 1 night on business. The surroundings of the hotel are beautiful, right in the centre of the village across from the castle. Internet access was good and even handled a voice call. The restaurant, "Kathleen's", was excellent. Food was great and a good variety of dishes. Staff were attentive and polite. I'll definitely be back.

We had a very nice stay here. Our room was comfortable and spacious, the staff was very gracious. One of our favorites on our trip. The bar downstairs does a brisk and lively business. Would definitely stay here again.

Hotel was quiet, and comfortable. The only issue was with the bathtub. The bottom was so narrow that I couldn't stand with my feet next to each other. I actually had to put one foot in front of the other because otherwise my ankles were turning. Had to put my foot on the side of the tub simply to rinse... More

Myself and several members of my family stayed in the Bunratty Castle Hotel recently, I found it to be a lovely hotel, nice big rooms, in a lovely location, near the Castle, craft shops and restaurants. It is an excellent hotel as a wedding venue, with a beautiful function room, lovely food, and excellent service.
