We stayed here for one night at the end of a bus tour and quite enjoyed our time here. The lobby was nicely decorated and cozy, with lots of comfy couches and chairs to hang out in. The room was large and clean with lots of natural light from the large window. Bathroom was clean and the shower had great... More

We stayed here on a CIE tour and attended an excellent Medieval Banquet at the adjacent Bunratty Castle. The public areas of the Castle Hotel are attractive and clean. Our room was disappointingly unclean. The carpet was loose on and there was dirt on the wood of the chairs and on the bathroom plumbing - at eye level when you're... More

I recently attended a family wedding here and stayed here for almost a week with many relatives. The staff were very helpful and accommodating, especially Mame in the bar, the cleaners (a few in particular whose names I'm afraid I don't recall) and the hotel's handyman. Our room was clean and spacious and the staff at breakfast and during the... More

I have had the opportunity to stay several times at the Bunratty Castle Hotel. It is an average hotel situated in great proximity to many things, especially the airport in Shannon. The staff is wonderful and kind. The main reason I can only give it three stars is that some of the rooms are in need of thorough cleaning and... More

This hotel is in need of a major overhaul! Our room was worn, dusty, spots on duvet cover, spots on room carpet, thin towels, carpet in the elevator was nasty and dirty, tv monitor is smaller than my computer screen. Very disappointed. Thankfully, we were here for one night. Left early for airport, so did not eat breakfast. Looking at... More

Our recent stay here was quite a disappointment. We walked into our room to find it reeked of vomit. We went down to front desk to report problem and we're time they could have housekeeping stop by if they hadn't left for the day. We requested a different room to which the reply was a shrug and a "I don't... More

Rooms are ok, but nothing special. The water in the shower hardly drains. Wi-Fi is free, albeit slow. Breakfast in the library is basic, the tea more coloured water than actual tea. It's a typical place for coach loads of cheap tourist trips, but it lacks a lot for the discerning business traveller. Excruciatingly awful piped music at breakfast. The... More
