“Flexibility at it's finest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Kathleen at Headley Court was fantastic! Once I get off the plane I just need to sleep a few hours. We had arranged to arrive early, but after breakfast. Our plane was early into Ireland! We decided to head over and see if we could get in even earlier. Kathleen was surprised to see us so early, but graciously welcomed us in. We went up to our room, told her not to fuss as we were going straight to bed and to take care of her other guests. Within 10 minutes, she was at our door offering us coffee!! We thanked her but were almost ready to get into bed. Our room was inviting, spacious and a great price. Her breakfast (we had the next morning) was fantastic!! Headley Court is situated for easy touring of Co. Clare and Bunratty. She was helpful the next morning in suggesting what to see on our way south to Dingle. The showers are large and she provides washcloths and super soft towels! We also finished our trip with her before coming home and had to leave early to catch the plane. Kathleen brought up a small quick breakfast that we could eat in the morning before leaving. We will definitely stay again on our next trip!

Thanks again! Heidi and Jill

Headley Court was my very first experience with B&B and my first impression was wonderful. Kathleen is so friendly and helpful, and she made us feel right at home. The house is beautiful and our room was very comfortable! The food was delicious! The location is perfect for visiting Bunratty Castle. We were there for our first night and our last night!

We found this B&B on a biker friendly accommodation website.

When we arrived, we received the warmest of welcomes, and the rooms are stunning in space and decor for the price.

As bikers, we were well looked after with a secure, dry garage with bike washing facilities and a proper 'man size' breakfast. There's a petrol station opposite the B&B for a convenient fill up for the bikes in the morning too.

The local pubs are a six euro taxi ride away, with food served until 10:00pm, so no need to dash back from a day out.

The location is convenient for a day or two around the ring of Kerry.

All in all, a well situated B&B which feels like a quality hotel at reasonable prices.

We hope to return some time

It was a wonderful experience and would go back without hesitation. Kathleen is an excellent hostess. She runs a beautiful bed and breakfast. The area is a good location to take day trips.

We enjoyed it very much to stay at headley Court. Very friendly and an excellent Breakfast. Kathleen helped me very much with my injured arm to find a doctor, because I had a small accident on the cliffs. Thanks a lot for all.

My brother and I stayed the last night we were in Ireland. Kathleen was amazing. She was very pleasant, made sure we had breakfast before we left, and got us to the airport in plenty of time. The rooms were very cozy I felt at home. I only stayed one night but wish I had stayed longer.

Before returning to school we took the children on a little trip around Co. Clare. As we had stayed in Headley Court in the past we booked ahead to make sure we could stay there for two nights. We travelled with three children. We stayed in the same room as last time which we were delighted with and would have assumed was the biggest room in the house. Well, when Kathleen showed us to the kids' room we were gobsmacked. It was huge with three beds, a sitting area and huge bathroom. In fact, all five of us could have comfortably slept here but it was nice to have our own room. As usual, Kathleen welcomed us with her wonderful home baking and chocolate bars for the kids. Once again, we had a very comfortable bed and slept like babies, followed by a huge, tasty breakfast. The kids thought Kathleen was wonderful making sure they all had their favourite cereals, french toast etc. It is a very convenient spot for touring Clare and Limerick and Kathleen is most helpful with suggestions and advice. Very highly recommended.

Room Tip: Book ahead
