We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this fantastic B&B. We stayed at 8 different B&B's during our 23 day vacation, and Briar Lodge went above and beyond our expectations. The whole family was inviting and I enjoyed the BEST french-toast I have had in years! Also, the little almond fingers were amazing! We enjoyed sitting outside on the picnic table... More

We stayed 4 nights and used Briar Lodge as our base for exploring the west of Ireland. I loved that Trish checked in with us every morning to find out what we'd done the previous day and gave us lots of helpful suggestions on things to do and how to avoid traffic and construction. Because it's so near Shannon Airport,... More

The Briar Lodge in Bunratty was an excellent B&B, run by the most lovely lady I've had the pleasure to meet. Not only were our beds soft and clean, but the french toast we were made in the mornings were out of this world. Tricia is an amazing lady and the kindest person. She was knowledgable about the area and... More

My friend and I stayed at Briar Lodge on our Ireland Fun trip. Our hostess was a hoot and a fantastic hostess, thank you Trish! Our room was cozy and delightful. The B & B itself was so warm and cozy you just felt like you were home with friends. We were having trouble with our phones so she had... More

We love Briar Lodge and Trish is the best hostess ever! We booked our first night in Ireland here, and also our last night before returning to the U.S. We flew into and out of Shannon, and Briar Lodge is an easy 10-15 minute drive from the airport. Everything about this B&B is just right and we will absolutely stay... More

Our last evening in the Emerald Isle could not have been met with a more friendly welcome, comfortable accommodations and elegant accents. Trish welcomed me with a smile and immediately felt at home. The room was beautifully made up, super warm blankets and extremely clean bathroom. The breakfast was also amazing. This was the best way to close up our... More

Briar Lodge is in a nice, quiet setting but is still a quick trip to Bunratty Castle (or an easy drive to Shannon). The room was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The host, Trish, was easy to talk to and made sure we felt at home. It really was like staying at a friend's house!

Of all the B&B’s we stayed in on our eight day trip to Ireland this one was the best. The house was lovely, in a peaceful setting, and our room was spacious and comfortable. The hostess, Trish, was very warm and welcoming. She provided our room with an electric tea pot and selection of nice teas. A quiet cup of... More

Briar Lodge was easy to reach and in a good location close to Bunratty Caslte & Folk Park. The host, Trish, was very friendly and accommodating and even did us a favour of washing our laundry for us. The breakfast was absolutely incredible and the room was comfortable, beautiful and very clean. Coffee and tea was available in the room... More
