Stayed here in our private tour of Ireland. The hotel is very clean and I would stay here again. The bar was nice and the staff were good. The hotel is located directly across from the medieval banquet and Durty Nellies

We stayed at Bunratty Hotel as part of a package with the Medieval Dinner at Bunratty Castle. The whole experience is BRILLIANT. Staying at the Hotel is convenient and comfortable. They have a standard late check-out (11:30am) which is appreciated - particularly if you were at the late sitting of the dinner. The room was very comfortable and quiet -... More

This is a charming Hotel and the accommodations are nice. It had a lot to be desired when it came to customer service.My friends went down to breakfast in the morning and was lectured by a woman running the breakfast room, because they were 5 minutes early. Not very nice! At breakfast I saw a manager treat a staff member... More

This was just a one night stay, but that was enough. There were decent amenities in the room, a king sized bed, but it was a worn looking hotel. It reminded us of some hotels in historical towns in America, but needs updating. It was convenient for the medieval banquet and shopping at the woolen mills. Food was fair at... More

Was a basic room, 2 beds, a tiny TV and bathroom. Hotel is very worn and needs upgraded. The water was warm but not hot enough for a nice shower. Black mold noted on the wall in the bathroom. Shower/tub surround had mold and rust marks. The coasters they leave under the glasses in the bathroom appeared to be there... More

Great Hotel raised from the main road with lovely grounds. The rooms were clean with comfortable beds and good amenities. Service and staff were also very good. Great location to stay at and within walking distance to see Bunratty Medieval Castle and Folk Lore Park. Lovely Pool and Spa as well.

Was very disappointed to find that we could no longer travel on the dates we booked. We gave plenty of notice of the cancellation. On line cancellation via the booking site was easy but there was no follow by the hotel to say that the requested cancellation had been received / processed / acknowledged. We had to email the hotel... More

We totally enjoyed our stay at Bunratty Castle hotel. It reminded us of a manor house. The hotel was decorated tastefully and was very clean. We were delighted with our suite. The hotel was walking distance to the Bunratty Castle and The Creamery restaurant. We had easy access to the highway to Shannon Airport. The front desk staff were very... More

Very pretty building & lobby. Loved all the dark, shiny, hardwood floors. There are elevators but they were slow so we just used the stairs. Some of the hallways were like a maze. We were with a tour group so we didn't have to deal with the front desk. The room had the usual, microwave, coffee, hair dryer, extra pillows,... More
