I can easily say The Courtyard was the best place we stayed during our holidays this year. From the second you enter to the second you leave all we got was a homely feeling and a happy smile. The rooms where a perfect size and the breakfast was fantastic and also the choices where an added touch. Only a 5... More

An excellent B&B, with lovely hosts. We had a very large room with sitting area! There is a lovely guest lounge if you want to relax away from your room. The breakfast room just lovely, the breakfast excellent. Cannot fault this B&B. The town is an easy 5/10 minute walk away. Next door is lovely pub/restaruant for your evening meal.... More

We spent four nights at the Courtyard before our Cycle Ireland Holiday, and were perfectly comfortable and at home due to the excellent accommodation and service by the patient and hospitable Michael and Mary. The ambiance is really relaxing, the breakfasts delicious, and the two restaurants next door are very good, too. Bunratty is a bit touristy, but The Courtyard... More

We loved our short stay at this B&B and wished it was longer. I have a feeling we'll be back. Bunratty is a small, walkable town if you stay at this B&B, not far from Shannon airport. There are great restaurants right next door, the original Durty Nelly's pub around the block. Bunratty Castle and Folklife area is right there... More

This immaculately clean and well-appointed B & B is the perfect place to continue your Irish experience up until the moment you depart at Shannon airport. It is located just a few blocks from Bunratty Castle and next door to a nice pub. Beds and linens are great and the proprietors Mike and Mary serve up a great breakfast as... More

When we travel to Ireland thru Shannon we always stay at the Courtyard. Extreamly clean, Mary and Michael are wonderful hosts and provide a great convient location for getting to and from the airport. It is convient to shopping and dinning.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights at the start of our bicycle tour with Cycle Holidays Ireland in July 2015. The hosts are fantastic - friendly and very funny. They managed to get us into our room at 10 am the first morning so we grabbed a quick nap after our early flight. Breakfast was quickly prepared... More

Lovely hosts: warm, obliging but discreet. Very clean, quiet hotel with comfortable mattress. Convenient location - perfect for when visiting Bunratty Castle. Gluten free toast and cereal at breakfast.

I recently stayed at the Courtyard in Bunratty for this first time and was pleasantly surprised with this B&B. The room was huge -- plenty of room for 3 people and the bathroom was very large as well... Good location - close to Bunratty Village & Castle... Rooms where clean too.

Spent first two nights in Ireland with Mike and Mary prior to our bicycle tour with Cycle Holidays Ireland. As others have stated the accommodations are very clean and the village of Bunratty is a short walk from the B&B. Also convenient is a small store/petrol station (wine and beer) located on the opposite side of their B&B. We also... More
