Dolores was beyond kind and accommodating from the moment we arrived at 7a.m. after a Trans-Atlantic flight. She anticipated our needs that we would we wanting to sleep. The room was comfortable. She drew the curtains and made sure we could get some much needed rest. Before sleeping (granted we arrived earlier than anticipated but she took that in great... More

We were greeted at the door with a hug and a kiss! Friendly and comfortable B&B in easy reach of Shannon Airport. Wonderful filling breakfasts. Near to a four lane road so rapid travel north and south.

A friend recently stayed here and recommended it to us - great decision to stay! Delores is warm, personable, funny and a great hostess. Felt like we were staying with an old friend; greeted warmly when we arrived and sent off with a hug when we left! Yes, there is a lot of bric-a-brac throughout the house, but everything was...

We stayed here just for one night while attending a rugby match in Limerick. Hosts were a joy to deal with typical good humoured Irish country people, even if himself IS a Dub. Nice cosy atmosphere great breakfast ,plenty of choice. Just down the road from the castle and durty nellies pub. Couple of minutes from Limerick ,What more would... More

Yes, as Melody D says, there is "clutter", but I love clutter and Delores is such a darling that we would continue to return here. She is a real character and makes such an effort with her guests, even putting hot water bottles in your bed on cold nights - this is what Irish hospitality is all about and we... More

This guesthouse or B & B is everything that an overnight in an Irish home should have - in a rural setting, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast and a most friendly and helpful hostess. This is a real, genuine, Irish B & B and sets the barometer high for every other proprietor in the way she looks after her guest. Highly... More

What a lovely surprise was in store for us. We just wanted a nice, peaceful get away and what we got was first class service and hospitality. Our room was absolutely beautiful, each of the rooms has a theme and ours was Ireland. Breakfast was scrumptious, with all the extras, Delores is a wonderful hostess with knowledge of the areas...

We stayed here for part of our Ireland vacation, intending to use the place as a jumping-off point for Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, and other sites in the vicinity. We were NOT disappointed with our choice. Bunratty Castle Mews is charming, eclectically-decorated, and the proprietor Dolores O'Toole is a national treasure. Breakfast options abound, from cold cereals, fruit, yogurt,... More

If you want bland open space, don't stay at a B&B and don't stay here. Get a hotel and enjoy boring. Filled with character and personality, my girlfriends and I loved this place close to the village's main attractions. Delores is a charming and vibrant woman, and generously took us to the pub so we wouldn't have to walk. The... More
