This is excellent choice BnB right in the heart of Bunratty village so it's close to attractions. It's atmosphere is friendly which is down to the owners. The decor is very pleasant and everything is neat and tidy. Excellent breakfast in a friendly dining area. The location near to Shannon is a great starting point if coming in from the... More

We spent 2 nights at the Courtyard before a weeks cycling adventure with Cycle Holidays Ireland. Rooms were immaculate, breakfast unbelievably delightful, hosts (husband and wife) friendly and obliging.

During my trip in June I had the opportunity to stay in the Bunratty, County Clare area. I was coming down from Donegal and heading on to Wexford and I thought I would break the drive with a stop in Bunratty. I've been to Bunratty before when I was departing from Shannon Airport last year. I liked Bunratty because of... More

Stayed here for one night with my partner. Very warm welcome from Michael and Mary. Our room was spotlessly clean with a beautiful bathroom. We were able to walk to Bunratty castle, it was less than 5 minutes away. We dined in The Creamery and it was very nice. Breakfast was excellent. Great selection and nicely homecooked. Would highly recommend... More

We stayed at the Courtyards twice while in Ireland. Mike and Mary could not have been more cordial and helpful! Located near the airport so a great place when arriving and leaving. Clean and peaceful. We highly recommend it!

The location is perfect--near Bunratty plus some great places to eat (like Durty Nelly's), plus right near a bus stop. The place is clean. friendly, and breakfasts are amazing. It was a great deal. Mary and Michael went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. When our original flight out of Shannon Airport didn't work out and we... More

Stayed one night before we flew out of the Shannon airport. Easy to get to by bus. It is only a few minute walk from bus stop to doorstep. We had to leave early to catch our flight and were unable to have breakfast so they gave us a discounted rate.
