We stayed at The Courtyard the night before our early morning flight out of Shannon. The Courtyard was very convenient for us because we did not have a car. Because the B&B is located in town, we could walk to wherever we wanted to go: restaurants, the castle, shops. The bus stop is only about a couple of blocks down... More

Quiet sleeping, bed was comfortable except the blanket seemed a little too short. Great location with easy access to get to Shannon Airport for early flight. That said, we left at 5:30 and... More

Stayed here for a night after a wedding and cannot praise it highly enough.The hosts were most welcoming and friendly. The room was lovely and spacious and spotlessly clean.The breakfast was top notch. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Mary and Michael Walsh run such a wonderful hotel and really make guests feel at home. The went out of their way so that my son could have gluten free and dairy free breakfasts and gave us tips for what to see and do in the area. The rooms are large and spacious and there aren't any stairs to haul... More

This is a big comfortable home run by a very nice couple. The room was large clean and comfortable with good wifi. Breakfast was very good and check in and out was efficient. Plenty of parking available to guests and its an easy walk to the sights of Bunratty.

The Courtyard is a great place to stay if you are visiting Bunratty or have an early flight out of Shannon. The location is great. The rooms are clean and spacious and the rates are very reasonable. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. We did not use the common rooms but they looked really nice.

Our group of 14 family members stayed in 6 rooms here. The rooms were very nice size, clean, and comfortable. The owners (Michael & Mary Walsh) were very accomodating and hospitable. Proximity to Bunratty attractions, good pubs and restaraunts, and Shannon Airport make this B & B a very good choice for incoming and outgoing passengers. Definately will be a... More
