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

I went to Ireland with my wife, daughters, parents and one of my nieces. We were staying in Killarney for a week but stopped at The Courtyard for our first night. We had early arrival all set up as we landed in Shannon at 6:30 AM. The B&B is gorgeous ! Beautifully decorated and super clean. Michael and Mary are... More

Lovely Bed & Breakfast, very friendly owners, relaxed atmosphere and only a few minutes walk to Bunratty Castle. Would highly recommend a visit for a quiet comfortable & pleasant stay!! If your in the area definitely book in for the medieval banquet in Bunratty Castle..

Just returned from a trip to Ireland with a small tour of women. We stayed at the Courtyard B&B at the beginning and the end of our tour. Mary & Michael our hosts welcomed us as if we were staying in their home. The accomodations were exceptionally clean and welcoming. Morning breakfasts began each day with the freshest of local...

The location is excellent! Bus stop is just across the road, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park are 2 mins away from the guesthouse and there are several great pubs and restaurants which are super close to Courtyard as well (Durty Nelly's is an absolute must!). I'd point out that this is probably the best place to stay for both those... More

I echo most of the other excellent reviews. The location was great (10-minute walk to Bunratty Castle and the Original Durty Nelly's). We played Adare Manor Golf Club about 10 minutes from there. The B&B was quiet and the wifi worked great. The owner was happy to accommodate our request for an early breakfast so we could eat before our... More

My wife and I stayed at the Courtyard for a night. The proprietors were very nice and exceedingly accommodating. They made us a full Irish breakfast, even though we had to leave early in the morning. We used the Courtyard as a base to catch an early morning plane back to the U.S. from Shannon Airport. The Courtyard is within... More

Our first night in Ireland ( we came by boat). Very big room, with everything one can wish. Very nice welcome when we arrived. Breakfast was delicious and it was great that we could have our breakfast early. Castle and Durty Nellies just a small walk away.

Stayed here, on Monday, October 13, 2014 for one evening, on the way further South. I can't say enough good things. The accommodations were clean & neat, the location excellent and the hospitality impeccable. Mike's friendliness was terrific and made me and my girlfriend feel very comfortable. Excellent cook, too!. We are already planning a return and this time, into... More
