This has become our place to stay when we are traveling in and out of Ireland. It's only a few minutes from Shannon airport and very easy to get to. Michael and Mary are wonderful hosts, making sure we had a back room upon arrival so we could get some rest away from the hustle and bustle of the entrance.... More

Great people, nice breakfast, nice rooms tastefully decorated, good shower, great central location close to the castle, and good car parking. 100% recommended. Not much more needs to be said as you will not regret staying here.

We stayed here for one night and it was a real good one. The room was beautiful, the beds were really comfortable and the shower modern and really good. The breakfast was as excellent as the kindness of the owner of the B&B ! There was lots of different things to eat and to drink and everything was delicious. No... More

Our stay here was for two nights. The owners were friendly and helpful. It felt more "homey" than like a hotel. The room was very clean. The breakfast and service were good. The beds tended to be very firm. Our room had a smaller shower but was adequate to get the job done. We were able to walk to and... More

A really very nice, friendly, clean hotel with nice cozy, good-sized rooms. The innkeepers, especially Mary are super nice and helpful. It's quite close to the Bunratty Castle & Folk Park as well as Blarney Woolen Mills and several shopping options. I would definitely stay here again.

The location was great with a shop two minutes away and the bus stop right across the road and about a five minute walk to the village. The owners of the guesthouse were very welcoming and couldn't do no more for us. The bedroom and bathroom were very spacious and light and the beds were nice and cosy, had no... More

We stayed one night before heading back to airport. Absolutely wonderful B&B. Clean, comfortable, with a great Irish breakfast. Great location for the Castle and Durty Nelleys near bye. Mary and Michael wonderful hosts. Thanks for great home for us to stay.

We stayed here on our last night in Ireland. We checked in easily, we went to the Banquet at the Castle and then to Durty Nellies. It was a wonderful way to end the trip, and the B & B was convenient to everything. Our breakfast the next day was cooked to order and served early as we needed to... More

Beautiful little B&B. Lovely, pleasant owners, clean spacious rooms. Well priced and a good hearty Full Irish Breakfast. Within walking distance to Bunratty Castle. Medievil Dinner at The Castle is a must.

The Courtyard Guesthouse is a purpose-built B&B on the grounds of Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and within about 10 minutes of the Shannon Airport. The owners are friendly, welcoming and helpful. The B&B is easy to reach and has plenty of parking on the grounds. Our room was large and comfortable, and there was a an inviting guest lounge... More
