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.

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

Mary and Michael are great hosts-friendly, warm, and welcoming. The room more than accommodated the 3 of us and was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and super fast. Only a 10 minute drive to the airport!

Thank you so much Mary for your lovely care of me and my sister and her daughter while we visited family in the area. The rooms are just lovely, beautifullly decorated and so comfortable. We couldn't have felt more welcome! Really hope to be able to find an excuse to stay with you again.

This place is casual, welcoming and very comfortable. We were welcomed like family. We stayed here at the both the beginning and end of our 2 week tour of Ireland, and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Great... More

This was the perfect location after visiting the Cliffs of Moher and wanting to visit Bunratty Castle the next morning. We had just gotten in that morning so when we checked in at 5 p.m. we were given a wonderful quiet room to stay in so that we got a good nights sleep. The breakfast was delicious and the service...

Michael & Mary are wonderful hosts. They went out of their way to find me a driver to take me to Tipperary when I was a bit slow in deciding if I would go or not, all depending on the weather and when I finally decided, yes, the taxis were all taken. Mary engaged her brother for a day hire... More

Mary and Michael went out of their way for us and it is a spectacular place. It is very clean and very elegant and beautiful I would highly recommend this place. It is right down the road from Bunratty castle and the creamery and some other great things in the area
