Best night's sleep I've had the whole time while in Ireland last night here at Bunratty Castle Hotel. Tonight not sure--I hear the family above with small children banging around. While that cannot be helped by the hotel of course, it does tell you that families with smaller children do stay here. The hotel is worn for sure around the... More

Good hotel. Booked two rooms. Everything you would want. Didn't have dinner there. Breakfast buffet was quite good. Rooms were large and bed were very comfortable. Leisure centre is very nice. Only a handful of channels on TV. We stayed here a few years ago and I thought the hotel is starting to look a little tired. Could do with... More

Hotel showing its age, frayed carpets, interior walls could do with a lick of paint along with skirting boards, overall could do with a renovation. Staff were nice, SPA and pool were enjoyable, bar staff a bit slow. the room was nice, bathroom had a hole in the bath. you get the idea....

Bunratty Castle is an absolute delight. I urge you tonket for the tour. It's been perfectly preserved as a living historically accurate workaday castle and is astonishingly beautiful. The rooms are furnished and even have livery and the period dresses laid out on the original beds. It is unbelievable how detailed the rooms, pantries, chapel room, even the dungeon have... More

The hotel is pretty but is old and needs some upkeep done. It is in walking distance of Bunratty Castle. It was quiet and clean for the most part. I wasn't especially impressed by the hotel restaurant/bar.

This hotel was welcoming from the moment we pulled up. It has beautiful grounds, exterior, and main rooms. My room was spacious, with a very comfortable king bed. The view out of my window was of an enchanting courtyard with a statue. The hotel is a short walk from Bunratty Castle, shopping, and a pub. The breakfast buffet was delicious.... More
