We had our wedding here in August and I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough . The setting of the hotel is perfect for a wedding and the castle suite looked amazing. The staff were so friendly and helpful both in the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself, they kept everything running smoothly. All the guests... More

We celebrated our wedding in Bunratty Castle Hotel August 25th 2012. The staff were very helpful and efficient in dealing with all our requests in respect of room decoration and meal choices. All our guests were very impressed with the meal on the day. We would highly recommend the hotel for anyone considering wedding venues at the moment! :)

We stayed here one night before meeting friends to travel for two weeks in Ireland. One night was enough. It is a nice location with very nice staff but the rooms are small, the beds are very uncomfortable and probably as old as the building. It is close to the airport so it has that going for it but it... More

The facility is right across the street from the Bunratty Castle and within 10 minutes of the Shannon airport. The staff was cooperative, the room was adequate. However, I am writing this review after being awakened from a sound sleep by the excrutiatingly loud fire alarm. We have had three false alarms in the last 20 minutes. The desk said... More

We had booked this hotel for one night, mainly because of its location close to Bunratty Castle. We had booked an Irish entertainment evening at the castle so the location of the hotel was perfect. We also enjoyed the shops next door. The hotel itself looked quite nice on the outside. However, we were completely disappointed with the hotel room... More
