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...

This B&B was our last stay before flying out the next am. The hostess greeted us at the door and was very friendly. She helped us make plans for the day (what to see, places for dinner, a pub with some good music). The B&B was beautiful and very comfortable (the bed was the most comfortable of the 5 accommodations... More

My husband and I based ourselves at Briar's Lodge for 3 nights while exploring County Clare, County Limerick and part of County Kerry. Everything was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious with a range of choices. Briar's Lodge is set in a quiet location, off the beaten track but not far from anything. Hostess, Trish goes the extra mile to... More

My wife & I found Trish, the owner of Briar Lodge, very welcoming & helpful. Room was small but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent! A little hard to find (especially at night) so I would advise to get good directions from hostess or to get GPS coordinates (not just the address). Location was excellent - very close to... More

My mom and I recently stayed at the Briar Lodge B&B and received wonderful service from Trish and her family. She was kind enough to give us a lift into town and pick us up again later in the evening since she could tell we were exhausted from driving all day. The room was very large and very comfortable. She... More

Upon my husband and my arrival in Ireland, we spent our first night at Briar Lodge. What a great way to start the vacation experiencing such a warm greeting and welcome by Trish, the property owner. The rooms are spacious, exceptionally clean, and the B & B is well maintained with flower gardens galore. Briar Lodge, although a 3-star rated... More

I stayed here for only a few hours but I wish it could have been longer. I was flying out from Shannon airport early the next morning but I arrived late, maybe 10.30pm. I was very tired and hungry and I received a very warm welcome. Firstly it was impossible to get a taxi in Bunratty after I had gotten... More
