No Fuss Booking and Allowed us into our Room slightly Early. Only downside was asking to use the Gymnasium and being told it was already in use ...? Fishing and BBQ Facilities in a Very Pleasant Area are also Available.

I stayed one night here over Christmas en route to a wedding in Limerick. There were guests in the room next door to me playing music really loudly and smoking in the bedroom. I needed to be up very early in the morning for the wedding and wanted a good sleep. I knocked on the wall and the music was turned up. I messaged the guesthouse on booking.com and the night manager went to the room and told them to turn the music down. Unfortunately as soon as the manager was gone the music got louder and they started shouting. This went on ALL NIGHT. I messaged the guesthouse again around 3am and the manager said he could put me in a different room. The behaviour of the other guests made it a miserable stay, but I was happy that the guesthouse offered me another room. There was no one at the desk when I checked out in the morning so I couldn't discuss possibly getting a discount/refund.

I am leaving Ardilaun Guesthouse tomorrow after booking a 2 night stay. I deliberately chose a guesthouse rather than a hotel but I now wish I’d chosen a small family-run bed & breakfast. This guesthouse is, in my view, large enough to have a full-time day & night receptionist. On arrival I had to ring a bell as reception was unmanned & had to wait in the porch. The welcome from the man I found out today is the manager was pleasant but perfunctory. I was asked what time I wanted breakfast & that he assumed I wanted a full Irish. My room, number 5, was fine with a few of the river. I use a CPAP but there were no sockets by the bed. Fine, my OSA is moderate so 2 nights without a CPAP won’t kill me. I do find it strange though, in 2020, with people charging phones, iPads etc, to have no sockets beside the bad. Anyway last night, my neighbours in room 3, a woman with at least 2 men, decided to party, loud music, talk, laughter & more that I’ll leave to the imagination of people reading this review. As there is no staff member around at night & no phone in the room or any number to call, this led to a real problem for me in terms of getting any sleep. I ended up hammering on the wall a few times. They finally, after the 3rd or 4th time I did this, decide to settle down for the night, at about 2am. This is why I believe staying in a small family run B & B would have been better. The owners of such premises take pride in their product. Clearly the owners of Ardilaun Guesthouse take no such pride in their business. I wouldn’t stay here again, I like a business that cares about its customers.

I stayed with my boyfriend for the weekend while travelling through west coast. Great location, comfortable room and cute back view with a deck and lake. The Atlantic way is really close by as well as Ennis. Safety protocol was provided, which it was important.
