This B&B is perfect for a one night (or longer I guess) stopover in the tiny village of Bunratty. The rooms were spacious and clean and the breakfast good. Free parking and friendly service. I am a light sleeper and wished we had taken the downstairs room we gave to my daughter and partner as the huge room we had... More

After planning a long day driving from Dingle, touring The Cliffs of Moher and the Burren, we decided to spend the night here and treat ourselves to the late seating of the Bunratty Castle Medieval Banquet. The Courtyard was the perfect location for proximity to the Castle. I'm not sure if they consider themselves a large B and B (12... More

Homely B&B with excellent facilities & good value of money. We had a nice warm spaciouse en-suite room. With its own off road car parking a wonderful breakfast room and communal lounge. Easy walking distance of Bunratty centre and a selection of bars and resturants

We stayed here for only one night but found everything was exceptional. We had driven from Dublin airport that morning and really needed an early check-in. Mary had no problem and we were in our room by 1:30pm for a quick nap. Everything in the room was excellent and the breakfast the next day was wonderful. We met a tour... More

Spotlessly clean & very comfortable room. The Courtyard is very quaint & lovely. Mary was very welcoming & insisted on discounting our bill because we were leaving for our flight before breakfast. Whist most use as a base for visiting Bunratty, we chose to stay as it is only a 15 minute drive from Shannon airport. It was was so... More

Our stay at the Courtyard was exceptional. The people there were so nice and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and help us out. Upon arriving late, and needing to get to the Bunratty Castle medieval dinner, they called down to let them know we were on our way and without telling us, they went out... More

Courtyard was a wonderful experience. Mike and Mary make great hosts and make you feel so welcomed. Mary cooks up a great breakfast to complement the cereals, toast and fresh fruit that's also offered for breakfast. The rooms are clean, spacious and decorated so lovely. We stayed our last 2 nights here and it worked out perfect for winding down... More

We stayed here for one night as we were heading to the late seating at the Bunratty Castle Banquet and wanted to stay nearby. We had a fantastic time at the banquet and it was an easy walk to the Courtyard. There is parking on site which is great and the hosts are very nice. The room was large and... More

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.
