A very comfortable and clean B & B. I had a spacious room and a very comfortable bed! The breakfast is excellent and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient for Bunratty Castle and Bunratty Village (a five minute walk). I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Highly recommended.

Stayed at The Courtyard for two nights as a base for exploring County Clare. Great find. Very comfortable, spotless, and great breakfast. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of options for dinner in the evenings and just a short walk to Bunratty Castle and Dirty Nellies. Definitely would use The Courtyard again in the future!

We were allowed to check in hours early since we arrived in Ireland at 8:00 AM on a Sunday!! We were given a very nice CLEAN room in the back of the B &B so we could take a nap before walking to the Bunratty Castle & Folk Village for dinner!! The bed was very comfortable with extra blanket which... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while at a wedding. I would highly recommend this quaint bnb to everyone. I did not want to leave. The rooms were spacious and spotless, the breakfast was delicious and the owners are very charming.

The Owens here are very lovely people. The rooms were very big but the beds were not as comfortable. The breakfast was nice enough but there was no coffee service in room or in the lobby before breakfast. This hotel was a perfect distance from Shannon Airport for our last night in Ireland, and the breakfast was early enough for... More

We arrived in the later afternoon. All other hotels,b&b sand boutique hotels were sold out as there was a conference. The lady that welcomed us was short spoken and seemed to be frustrated with us. Told us to leave the key over there and pointed in a general direction. It was a shame that the castle we came to see... More

I stayed here the first two nights of my bike tour and was impressed with how well taken care of this B&B is. Located on entry to Bunratty, has good location and good food. Very comfortable. Breakfast has a good choice and the owners will make a full breakfast if you ask. Nice way to start our tour.

I spent one night at the courtyard before leaving Ireland. My room was ready for me when I arrived. The Internet connection is excellent, they have different ones for different points in the house. Quiet and absolutely comfortable stay. Clean as anything. My bathroom was lovely. Offered tv in my bedroom as well. Breakfast was perfect - continental style or... More
