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

We stayed at Briar Lodge the night before flying back to the U.S.A. out of Shannon Airport. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and Trish visited with us for several minutes before recommending shopping and places to eat. She also showed us how to use the shower. The en-suite room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed a hot shower the... More

Briar Lodge was the final B&B I stayed in during my ten day trip and it was lovely. Beautiful location and loved my room and how comfortable I felt. Trish is fantastic. She helped me plan some activities and chatted with me when I just wanted to hang out at the house. I was traveling alone and she made me... More

Stayed at Briar Lodge June 2014 with 7 other family members. Trish was an absolute sweetheart! Home was immaculate, with nice sized rooms and very comfortable. It was one of my favorite places we stayed during our time in Ireland. Enjoyed the home cooked food and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend staying here and would definitely stay again if I ever...
