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

We booked this guesthouse for our first night in Ireland because it was only minutes from the Shannon airport. We liked it so much, we booked our last night as well. Mike and Mary were wonderful hosts, we enjoyed our nice rooms and lovely breakfasts. Very close to food, pubs and shopping for those last-minute souvenirs.

We stopped at the Courtyard by accident while touring Ireland. It was close to Bunratty Castle and several eating places. The people were more than friendly, the room was a tad small but clean and serviceable . Breakfast was good.

After a long day of driving on narrow Irish roads, we were ready for a gin and tonic when we arrived at The Courtyard. Our host, Mike, actually brought ice ( I hadn't seen any in a week!) up to our room for us and we enjoyed sitting outside with our drinks. Our room was clean, but very basic. This... More

Excellent accommodations! Beautiful spacious room, delicious breakfast! Within walking distance to a few restaurants, the folk park. The hosts were absolutely lovely, very nice. Book directly through the Courtyard's website for better rates!! Thanks for a great stay!

The B&B was very clean and the managers quite friendly. We slept well and were able to enjoy a good solid breakfast before leaving for the airport. Would stay again and hope that I will be able to. Short walk to the Bunratty castle and medieval dinner. As well as Durty Nellie's for dinner.
