Briar Lodge is a lovely place to stay. Trish, our host is a professional who has operated the B & B for years and knows how to do it efficiently and smoothly. She immediately makes you feel welcome and invited to her lovely home. We stayed 2 nights, Sept. 20, 21, 2015. We had originally booked one night, but felt... More

"The Briar Lodge " Bunratty Ireland is a great example of why you need to get out of Dublin, take a break from hotels and chain lodging, and see Ireland and what a B&B has to offer. We did just this on our trip to Ireland and found a gem in the "The Briar Lodge and help from B&B Ireland”.... More

Trish was absolutely amazing! My sister-n-law and I fell in love almost immediately once the door opened and this warm, soft spoken woman came out to greet us. She showed us to our cutesy rooms!! The decor, the layout of the house, the property was absolutely charming. We were traveling with our partners and my sister-n-laws 1 yr old daughter... More

The owner of this BNB has been in the business for nearly 30 years and it shows. Trish runs an efficient business. Everything functioned well in the rooms and her Wi Fi is strong and did not need a password. She was very friendly and gave us good advice on area attractions as well as accurately advising us when to... More

We had a great visit at Briar Lodge. We were passing through County Clare and only stayed a night, though Trish went out of her way to make us comfortable. She is really fun and engaging! The breakfast was nice & the B&B was really easy to find because of all the sign markings.

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
